And-Ones: Additional news and notes from Georgetown-Syracuse

December 5, 2015

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

  • Marcus Derrickson recorded his second double-double (13 points, 10 rebounds) of the season Saturday. Derrickson had 12 points and 12 rebounds against Bryant earlier this year.
  • After Saturday’s game, Syracuse now leads the all-time series between the schools 49-42. Georgetown has won three of the last four meetings dating back to Feb. 2012.
  • Former Georgetown great Otto Porter Jr. of the Washington Wizards attended Saturday’s game. He sat next to former Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson Jr. Porter will be long remembered for his heroic 33-point performance the last time the Hoyas played the Orange at the Carrier Dome in 2013. The Hoyas won that game 57-46. Former Director of Basketball of Operations and another Georgetown great Othella Harrington was also in attendance.
  • Speaking of the elder Thompson, when senior center Bradley Hayes was asked a question in the post-game press conference about how Syracuse Interim Head Coach Mike Hopkins said he was “one of the most improved players in the country,” Thompson could be heard in the back of the room saying, “Amen to that.”
  • Longtime Georgetown radio announcer Rich Chvotkin was honored at halftime for calling his 1,300th game. Chvotkin has been the voice of the Hoyas since the 1974-75 season.
  • Attendance for the game totaled 18,231, over 14,000 better than Tuesday’s victory over UMES, the lowest attended Georgetown regular season game in Verizon Center history. It’s the largest crowd to watch a Georgetown basketball game since the Hoyas last played Syracuse in front of a sold-out crowd in March 2013.
  • For those gambling aficionados, Georgetown entered Saturday’s game as 5.5-point favorites.
