Last night at McDonough Arena


3.2 Seconds remaining in the first half when Winston-Salem State made its first field goal inside the 3-point arc. The Rams made five first-half 3s but generated no offense inside the 3-point line against the larger Hoyas, finishing with just 18 first-half points.

3 Combined made 3-pointers and free throws for Georgetown before intermission. The Hoyas were 3-for-14 from 3-point range and 0-for-5 at the line in the first half. Reverting to the poor shooting form that defined their two-game losing streak to Oregon and Duke, the Hoyas were hapless from outside the lane, allowing the undersized Rams to stay in the game.


Georgetown sophomore Octavius Spann showed up with perhaps the worst haircut in the history of Georgetown hoops. The reserve forward sported a modified mohawk that looked not unlike a squirrel-pelt toupee. Actually, Spann’s hairdo was a dead ringer for the eerie chop job that defined Robert DeNiro’s psycho character, Travis Bickel, in “Taxi Driver.”
