Welcome to “And-Ones,” the Voice’s post-game notebook for all news, stats, and notes following each Georgetown men’s basketball game.
After not playing in the Hoyas’ last game due to a lingering hip injury, sophomore forward Paul White returned to action Saturday. White had six points, off 3-of-4 shooting, and three assists in 15 minutes.
- Sophomore guard L.J. Peak fouled out for the fifth time, fourth in last five games, this season on Saturday. “He and I have to figure that out,” said Thompson of Peak’s foul trouble.
- For the second consecutive game, senior guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera struggled shooting-wise. Smith-Rivera shot 2-of-10 from the field, including 1-of-8 from three-point range, to finish with seven points. He also had five rebounds and four assists. “I’m not worried about D’Vauntes’s shot,” said Thompson. “He has to take the right shots at the right times and when he does that he makes more than he misses.
- Saturday was the third all-time meeting between Georgetown and UNC Asheville. The Hoyas lead the series 2-1. Georgetown is 12-2 all-time against teams from the Big South Conference. The other loss came in the season-opener to Radford.
- Sightings: Georgetown women’s basketball all-time leading scorer Sugar Rodgers.
- For those gambling aficionados, there was no betting line for the game. Apparently, Vegas can’t figure out the Hoyas either.
