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

  • Tyler Pearre

    Monday was the 105th all-time meeting between Georgetown and St. John’s. The Hoyas have not played any other school more times. The Hoyas lead the all-time series 56-49. Under Thompson III, the Hoyas are 16-6 against the Red Storm, who have lost 11-straight games in our nation’s capital. Their last win at Verizon Center came on Jan. 18, 2003, a 77-72 victory. Craig Esherick was in his second-to-last year as the head coach of Georgetown.

  • Senior guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, sophomore forward Isaac Copeland, and sophomore guard LJ Peak became the first Georgetown trio to score 20 or more points each since the Hoyas defeated Missouri 111-102 in overtime in Nov. 2010. Austin Freeman had 31 points, Jason Clark had 26, and Chris Wright had 21.
  • Sightings: Former Georgetown players Jabril Trawick and Greg Whittington of the D-League’s Sioux Falls Skyforce. Despite being kicked off the team during the middle of his junior season, Whittington was seen greeting players as they walked off the court after the game and was welcomed into the team locker room.
  • For those gambling aficionados, Georgetown entered Monday’s game as 15-point favorites. The over/under was 144 points.
