Final Four: Centers of Attention

By - March 31, 2007

A pair of Hibbert baskets including a put-back dunk closed the margin to 15-14 -- but the 7-foot-3 pivotman just picked up his second foul of the game in hacking a driving David Lighty going into the eight-minute TV timeout. Wouldn't be surprised to see Georgetown take the floor without Hibbert here -- but will Oden's having sat for the past 11 minutes and likely to soon return influence Thompson's decision?

Moot point as the case may be -- as both teams just took the court without their marquee big men. Othello Hunter (6-8, 225 lbs.), the least heralded member of the Thad Five, is playing the five for Ohio State while Patrick Ewing, Jr. (6-8, 238 lbs.) is his counterpart.
