Last night at MCI Center:

QUOTABLE

“They’re not hitting the wall. They can’t hit the wall. They’re not allowed to hit the wall. No, we can’t afford for them to hit the wall, so we’re not even going to talk about that. What wall?”

— Georgetown coach John Thompson III on his freshmen trio of Jeff Green, Jonathan Wallace and Roy Hibbert

KEY NUMBER

1,018 Points scored by junior forward Brandon Bowman in his Georgetown career. Bowman recorded his 1,000th point from the foul line with 6:24 left in the first half and finished with 25 points, making 14 of 15 free throws. Eric “Sleepy” Floyd (2,304 points from 1978 to 1982) heads the list of 35 Hoyas with 1,000 or more points.

SEEN AND HEARD

RETRO REVIEW: Georgetown’s retro night qualified as thoroughly lame. Neither team wore throwback uniforms, and few fans actually got into the ‘80s act. Perhaps ESPN wins the retro laurels for putting 79-year-old Jim Simpson behind the microphone. Simpson handled the play-by-play for the first Big East game televised by ESPN in 1980. Simpson was joined on ESPN Classic’s coverage by Warner Wolf and former Hoyas captain Fred Brown.
