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

  • Tuesday was the third time this season that a Georgetown player has scored in the teens in a half, as senior guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera had 17 points in the first half against Maryland Eastern Shore. Junior forward Reggie Cameron had 14 against Wisconsin and sophomore forward Isaac Copeland had 15 vs. Duke.
  • With his performance Tuesday night, Smith-Rivera also moved into second all-time in made three-pointers, passing Kevin Braswell. Former Hoya great Jonathan Wallace is the all-time leader with 240 career treys. Tuesday night also marked the ninth career game Smith-Rivera has made at least five three-pointers and the 21st time that he has scored 20 or more points. He finished with 30 points for the fourth time in his career.
  • Georgetown leads the all-time series with Maryland Eastern Shore 7-0. The Hoyas are now 54-0 all-time against teams from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
  • For those gambling aficionados, Georgetown entered Tuesday’s game as 25.5-point favorites.
  • Aside from Smith-Rivera, the best offensive performances came from the stands, as Matt from the Bookstore Bucket Challenge scored seven points, better than every Hoya other than Smith-Rivera, Hayes, and Campbell. Unlike both of the competing teams, the Georgetown student section drained free throw after free throw in a halftime knock-out thriller.
  • Tuesday night was “Jeopardy Night” at Verizon Center. Fans who answered a question about Georgetown correctly at the box office earned a free ticket to the game.
  • Total attendance for the game was 4,062, the lowest to attend a Georgetown game at Verizon Center in 10 years when 2,797 fans paid to see the Hoyas defeat Boston University in the 2005 NIT.
