Seen and heard yesterday at MCI Center:
NO CONLEY VMI guard Jason Conley, who became the first freshman in Division I history to lead the nation in scoring (29.3 ppg) last season, did not play after straining a tendon in his right foot in Sunday's 71-67 victory over Harvard. The injury spoiled a homecoming for Conley, who is from Chevy Chase and played high school ball with Hoyas guard Drew Hall at Montrose Christian. The 6-foot-5 Conley is averaging 22.2 points after 10 games.
"Teams know who I am and my teammates weren't as good last year as they are now," Conley said. "That's the reason I don't have to shoot as much."
GENERATION GAP At halftime of the game, the replay screen flashed of preview of the last night's MCI Center New Year's festivities the Wizards-San Antonio Spurs game followed by a concert from up-and-coming rapper Mario. One courtside fan had a problem with last night's musical entertainment. At least 20 times, the fan screamed, "Can somebody tell me who is Mario?" By the end of the game the fan was still waiting for an answer.
