Seen and heard yesterday at MCI Center:

CAN I BORROW YOUR TIE? — Bill Shapland, Georgetown’s longtime sports information director, had worn a coat and tie to every Hoyas men’s basketball game for 20 years until yesterday, when ESPN’s regional broadcasting team of play-by-play man Bob Picozzi and analyst Bob Weltlich rolled into the nation’s capital. Apparently, Weltlich forgot his tie and could not go on camera without looking professional. So Shapland loaned Weltlich his blue patterned tie so ESPN could go on with the show.

SENIOR DAY — Georgetown honored its three seniors in a pregame ceremony. Guard Gerald Riley, center Courtland Freeman and forward Omari Faulkner were each presented with a inscribed silver bowl. Riley’s contributions will be missed the most. A four-year starter, he has 1,473 points, 13th on Georgetown’s all-time scoring list.

GEORGETOWN’S HALF PEP BAND — Georgetown’s spring break started Friday and about half of Georgetown’s pep band and cheerleaders showed up for the finale.
