Last night at Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, N.J.:


Entering the Seton Hall game, Georgetown ranked third in the nation in field goal percentage, shooting 52.0 percent. Though he lacks the attempts a game by a slim margin to be listed among the NCAA leaders, junior center Roy Hibbert leads the team, and would lead the nation, in the category (70.2 percent). Providence’s Herbert Hill officially leads the nation with a 69.5 percentage. …

• Although Georgetown committed 21 turnovers, a number that had coach John Thompson III riled up after the game, the lion’s share came well after the game was decided. In building a 20-7 lead in the first six minutes, Georgetown committed no turnovers and made seven of 10 field goal attempts.


After stealing a crosscourt pass early in the second half, Jessie Sapp dribbled downcourt in transition, split two Seton Hall defenders and lofted a perfect pass to Jeff Green for a thunderous tomahawk jam that gave the Hoyas a 40-25 lead with 16:18 left.
