Welcome to “And-Ones,” the Voice’s post-game notebook for all news, stats, and notes following each Georgetown men’s basketball game.

  • Sophomore forward Paul White missed his second consecutive game with a hip injury. White had been limited in practice the past few days and was a game-time decision entering Tuesday’s contest. Sophomore guard Tre Campbell did not play in the second due to an undisclosed injury. Campbell told Thompson at halftime that he would be unable to finish the game.
  • Georgetown’s starting five, all of whom scored in double-figures, accounted for 94.6 percent of the team’s 75 points. Freshman center Jessie Govan was the only Hoya to score off the bench with three points. The last time all starters scored in double-figures for Georgetown was on this past Feb. 17, when they routed St. John’s 79-57 at Verizon Center.
  • Maryland went to the free throw line 32 times Tuesday night. Charlotte was the last Georgetown opponent to attempt more. They shot 33 free throws during their 81-78 loss at Georgetown last season on Dec. 20.
  • Georgetown-Maryland was one of eight matchups part of the inaugural Gavitt Tipoff Games, which will be held annually between Big East and Big Ten teams until 2022. Other matchups, all taking place this week, include DePaul-Penn State, Villanova-Nebraska, Providence-Illinois, St. John’s-Rutgers, Creighton-Indiana, Marquette-Iowa, and Xavier-Michigan. The namesake of the games, Dave Gavitt, was the Big East’s first commissioner.
  • This was the 64th all-time meeting between Georgetown and Maryland. Maryland leads the all-time series 37-27. The Hoyas and Terrapins last played in College Park in the 1973-74 season. Against teams from the Big Ten Conference, the Hoyas are 30-38 all-time. Under Head Coach John Thompson III, the Hoyas are 44-46 against nationally ranked opponents.
  • Maryland honored numerous legends Tuesday night. The Terrapins honored the last four teams to defeat Georgetown – including the 1973-74, 1974-75, 1993-94, and 2000-01 squads. Representatives from those teams included Len Elmore, Tom McMillen, Joe Smith, John Lucas, Juan Dixon, and Hall of Fame coach Gary Williams.  Smith, the No. 1 overall pick of the 1995 NBA Draft, also served as the game’s honorary captain. Dixon had a mini shooting session on the court two hours before the game. Greivis Vasquez of the Milwaukee Bucks was also in attendance and sat in the student section.
