Last night at Bradley Center in Milwaukee:


10:13 Time remaining in the first half when sophomore forward Jeff Green picked up his second personal foul on a dubious charging call by Curtis Shaw. Green spent the remainder of the half on the bench, and Georgetown’s offense bogged down without him on the floor. When Green left the game, the Hoyas held a 16-13 lead. With him on the bench, they made just three field goals in the final 10:13, resulting in a 29-24 Marquette lead at halftime.


Marquette offers one of the best game-break promotions in the college game: a semester’s worth of tuition for a 3-point make. Georgetown’s raft of gift certificate giveaways pales in comparison.


“Reaper. … Reaper. … Reaper”

— Chant from the Marquette students every time the Golden Eagles 6-foot-10 reserve Chris Grimm checked into the game or touched the ball. They don’t come any stiffer than Grimm, and even the Marquette faithful know it.
