Meadowlands: Tip in 15

By David Scott - March 25, 2007

Both teams are on the floor going through final stretching and shooting drills. Carolina is in home whites with sky blue shooting jerseys and Georgetown is in road grays with navy blue warm-ups.

Some of the more interesting notes we culled from both teams game notes:

. . . UNC has won 13 consecutive NCAA regional games and seven straight regional finals.

. . . Roy Williams has never faced Georgetown as a head coach.

. . . The is will be the Tar Heels 38th game of the year, tying a school record (1992-93 and the Final Four year of 1997-98).

. . . The Heels are 6-1 in four NCAA Tournament appearances in East Rutherford, with their only loss in the Meadowlands coming against Syracuse in 1987.

. . . Georgetown is in its eighth Elite Eight and its first since 1995-96.

. . . Roy Hibbert is averaging 13.0 ppg and 11.7 rpg in the three games of NCAA Tournament play; his season averages in both categories are 12.7 and 6.8.

. . . The Hoyas average 68.5 points per game and the Heels are scoring at an 85.8 ppg clip. Repsectively they hold teams to 57.0 and 67.9.

. . . Georgetown Athletic Director Bernard Muir was recently honored as one of Street & Smith's SportsBusiness Journal's "40 Under 40." Muir, 38, has been the Hoya AD since June of 2005.
