Last night from JMU Convocation Center in Harrisonburg, Va.


15 Consecutive points to start the game for Hoyas sophomore center Roy Hibbert. The 7-foot-2 Hibbert singlehandedly paced the Hoyas to a 15-14 lead by making his first five field goal attempts over the game’s opening 9:22 before another Hoya found the scoring column.


There were two awe-inspiring qualifiers for the Hoyas. First, midway through the first half, senior swingman Darrel Owens hooked up with sophomore power forward Jeff Green for a gym-silencing alley-oop. Owens lobbed the pass from 25 feet away on the left wing, and Green practically bumped his head on the rafters en route to a thunderous two-handed jam. Later in the half, senior forward Brandon Bowman spun around his man at the top of the key, exploded down the lane and soared over JMU’s Lewis Lampley for a facial tomahawk jam that put the Hoyas ahead 40-31 with 48 seconds left before intermission.


D.J. Owens, the fifth-year Georgetown wing, earned his extra season last night, scoring eight straight points for the Hoyas when the Dukes challenged down the stretch. After JMU closed within 59-55 with 6:00 remaining, Owens hit a pair of free throws and then buried back-to-back bombs from behind the arc to give the Hoyas a 67-56 cushion with 2:31 remaining. The last three-ball was a thing of beauty as Owens and Jeff Green played a two-man game, milking the clock within five seconds before Green screened off Owens’ man for a step-back dagger.
