February 18, 2016

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

  • The Hoyas are now 9-6 at home this season, the most home losses in a season since Head Coach John Thompson III took over before the 2004-05 season. The Hoyas still have two home games remaining against No. 8 Xavier and Butler.
  • Alex Boyd

    In the Hoyas’ last six losses, opponents have shot 30 or more attempts from the free throw line. Seton Hall (25-of-30), at Providence (27-of-36), at Seton Hall (20-of-33), at Butler (31-of-38), Providence (24-of-33), at Connecticut (29-of-36).

  • With his two made three-pointers Wednesday night, Georgetown senior guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera tied former Hoya great Jonathan Wallace for the most three-pointers made in school history. Smith-Rivera is also the only the Hoya to score more points as a freshman than Govan did Wednesday night. While Govan had 27, Smith-Rivera scored a career-high 33 points as a freshman against DePaul in Feb. 2013.
  • After not attending the Hoyas’ last game at Providence to recover from surgery on his broken left hand, senior center Bradley Hayes sat on the Georgetown bench Wednesday night. Hayes is out indefinitely.

    Diving for a loose ball late in the first half, freshman center Jessie Govan cut himself and bled all over his No. 15 jersey. He was forced to wear No. 20 for the second half.

  • Wednesday night was the 101st meeting all-time between the two schools, with Georgetown holding a 56-45 edge in the series. Ever since the Big East reformed in 2013, both teams have yet to split a regular-season series. The Pirates completed the season-sweep this year as well as in 2013-14, and the Hoyas swept the Pirates last season. This season also marks the first time that the Hoyas have been swept by Providence and Seton Hall in the same year.
  • Sightings: Former Hoya guard Austin Freeman sat courtside.
  • For those gambling aficionados, Georgetown entered Wednesday night’s game as 3-point favorites. The over/under was 144 points.
