Hoyas report

Last night from Alumni Hall in Annapolis


16:23 Time remaining in the game when Georgetown sophomore center Roy Hibbert set a new career scoring standard. The 7-foot-2, 283-pound Adelphi native dropped a 14-foot jumper, giving him 17 points and giving the Hoyas a 44-26 lead. Hibbert’s previous career high was 15 points in a loss at Notre Dame last February.


The Naval Academy might have the best referee heckle in college basketball. Each time a call went against Navy, the Mids chanted, “The ref hates America. The ref hates America. The ref hates America.”


Georgetown’s Darrel “D.J.” Owens authored a pair as the Hoyas strolled out to a 35-18 halftime lead. Early in the half, Owens set a solid screen that leveled 230-pound Navy forward Carlton Baldwin, leaving the Mids’ big man sprawling on the floor and shaking his head to clear the cobwebs. Minutes later during a Georgetown fast break, Owens redirected a perfect touch pass to Hibbert for a hoop-and-harm conversion to put the Hoyas up 21-10 with 5:11 left.
