Yesterday at Verizon Center


Asked after the game if he felt any special emotions about what was potentially his final home game at Georgetown, junior forward Jeff Green seemed genuinely surprised by the query: “Special emotions for who? Me? No, I just wanted to win. I wasn’t really thinking too much about myself.”

The 6-9, 235-pound Green, who likely will leave early for the NBA, finished the regular season averaging 13.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists and is expected to be voted (by the coaches) the Big East’s player of the year at the league banquet on Tuesday night.

“There isn’t a better player in the league than Jeff Green,” Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun said. “I’m going to sit down and look at it and fill my ballot out [today], but there isn’t a better overall player than Green. He’s so multidimensional. He’s so unselfish.”
