Yesterday at MCI Center

By the Numbers

17Offensive rebounds for Georgetown, one off the team’s season high recorded in a double-overtime victory at Notre Dame last month. One of the league’s weaker rebounding teams, the Hoyas outboarded the Orange 39-28, marking just the third time this season Syracuse suffered a double-digit deficit in that category.

QUOTABLE

“NIT … NIT … NIT”

— Chant that rained down on Syracuse from the Georgetown faithful as the clock wound down on the Hoyas’ blowout victory. While the Orange have 19 total wins, they have just one over a Top 25 team (No. 14 West Virginia) against five losses and are likely to finish 8-8 in the Big East with a closing split against DePaul and No. 2 Villanova.

Seen and heard

Senior guard Ashanti Cook, who landed on his tailbone after vaulting over Syracuse gunner Gerry McNamara with 16:55 left in the second half, returned to the game with a noticeable limp down the stretch. After the game, however, Cook claimed he was “fine” and explained the injury was just a bruise. Cook was the key defender in the Hoyas’ excellent effort against McNamara, who finished with just eight points on 3-for-10 shooting.
