Meadowlands: Hoyas Hang Tough

By David Scott - March 25, 2007

Despite a huge discrepancy in free throw shooting, the Hoyas managed to hang within six points at the half and trail 50-44.

. . . Hoya fans have been none too pleased with the officiating (especially with Curtis Shaw) as their men in navy blue had been whistled for 9 fouls to just five for UNC at the under-4:00 media timeout (at half it's 10-8 for the Hoyas). Every pro-Hoya call has been getting sarcastic cheers from the GTown faithful. The Hoyas shot five free throws (hitting three) in the half and UNC shot 20 (making 17). Patrick Ewing, Jr. was whistled for his thrid foul of the game with .8 seconds remaining in the half, giving rise to even more boos from the Hoya loyals.

Ewing and Sapp have three each for Georgetown.

. . . Hansbrough and Wright have 12 points apiece for UNC and Georgetown is being led by Roy Hibbert's 11 (5 of 6 from the field).

. . . I've been trying to count the number of surefire career NBA players who are in this game and so far I'm at six. Wright, Lawson and Terry for UNC; Green, Hibbert and Ewing for GTown. But I'm open to additions or subtractions from that preliminary list.

. . . Back in a few with halftime stats and observations.
