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

December 16, 2015

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 did not play in Tuesday night’s game. White has been hampered with a hip injury that caused him to miss the team’s first four games and has limited his minutes since then.
  • Senior guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera continued his ascent in the team’s record books. With his 18 points Tuesday night, Smith-Rivera moved past Allen Iverson for 14th on the school’s all-time scoring list. And with two made three-pointers, he also became just the second Hoya in history to make 200 or more from downtown. Jonathan Wallace, who made 240 in his career, is the only other Hoya to accomplish the feat.
  • Smith-Rivera also attempted 10 three-pointers for the second time this season and just the fifth of his career. It was his worst performance of all the efforts, as he only made two of his attempts.
  • Senior center Bradley Hayes did not convert a field goal attempt, going 0-of-4 and finishing with one point. “People now know that he can score, they’re going to be more attentive to him,” said Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson III of Hayes. “I think B.J. just had one of those days, I’m not sure it was something that they did to take him out of the game.”
  • Sophomore guard L.J. Peak fouled out for the third in the last four games. He has fouled out four times this season.
  • Georgetown now leads the all-time series against Monmouth 2-1. The teams last played in 1984, a 74-54 Georgetown win. The Hoyas are now 60-39 all-time against teams from the MAAC. It was the first meeting with a MAAC school since the Hoyas defeated Fairfield in 2007.
  • Georgetown legend Dikembe Mutombo was in attendance, sitting courtside.
  • For those gambling aficionados, Georgetown entered Tuesday night’s game as 10-point favorites. The Hoyas have now been favored in two losses this year, Radford and Monmouth.
