Yesterday at MCI Center


“It seemed like it took 40 minutes for them to look at it.”

— Georgetown coach John Thompson III on the officials’ review of Roy Hibbert’s game-winning dunk. The review actually took closer to three minutes, and lead official Steve Welmer informed the coaches the ball was out of Hibbert’s hands with one tenth of a second remaining on the clock.


9 Field goals for Notre Dame in the second half. The Irish went almost six minutes without a field goal at one point and would have been blown out if six of those nine field goals hadn’t been 3-pointers.


NCAA tournament talk came out in the media room following Georgetown’s victory. The win was enormous because it gives the Hoyas a 3-0 record against the three teams in the league (Notre Dame, Villanova and Pittsburgh) with whom they primarily will be competing for at-large NCAA tournament berths. Assuming conference powers Syracuse, Connecticut and Boston College are squarely in range of making the tournament, the Hoyas now have the pole position for the league’s fourth spot.
