Yesterday at Greensboro (N.C.) Coliseum

SEEN AND HEARD

Two Tennessee fans had the strangest outfits of the day. They wore what looked liked prison jumpsuits with large horizontal stripes of day-glow tangerine and white. … Karl Hobbs’ foot-stomping could be heard throughout the game as well as his piercing whistle. Several Duke fans mocked him by whistling back at him. … All three of Pops Mensah-Bonsu’s brothers were at the game.

BY THE NUMBERS

7Blocked shots by Shelden Williams

27.0

First-half shooting percentage for GW.

QUOTABLEs

“It’s tough not to be sad about a loss, but we were able to accomplish a lot this year. 27-3, that’s a pretty good record. The stuff we were able to do in the regular season was pretty amazing. So, it’s a bittersweet moment.”

— GW’s Mensah-Bonsu after playing his final college game

“His presence changed shots. We would go up and he would give us a little contact. He changed just about everything in the game. Every shot we took, he pretty much changed. If he didn’t block it, he changed it.”

— GW’s Danilo Pinnock on Duke’s Williams
