Analysis: Georgetown 72, UConn 69

With just seconds left on the shot clock and the game in the balance, Georgetown turned to its best three point shooter (2-2, 1.000) to bury an open 20-footer and pull out a hard-fought win at the Phone Booth against the Connecticut Huskies.

In a game where offensive leader Jon Wallace struggled mightily with his outside shot (1-7 3FG), Roy Hibbert led with way with 20 points and 8 rebounds (both game highs). Pat Ewing and DaJuan Summers helped out in the 1st half with 11 points, 5 rebounds and 10 points, 2 rebounds respectively, while Austin Freeman stepped up in the 2nd half with 9 points on 3-4 3FG shooting.

Witty and/or elucidating bullet-pointed half-thoughts:
  • Georgetown's first half offensive efficiency was attributable as much to the low turnover rate (4 in 33 possessions) and offensive rebounding as the eFG%, which was actually lower than the Hoyas' season average entering the game (60.6%).
  • The Hoyas held UConn to 20% OReb rate for the game. The Huskies had entered the game averaging 40.2%, 18th out of 341 teams, and this was an important component of their offense (see the correlation table at the bottom of the link).
  • Holy crap! In the 2nd half, Hasheem Thabeet and friends blocked fully 1-in-3 2FGAs attempted, effectively shutting down Georgetown's inside game; by my count, the only points in the paint scored by the Hoyas in the 2nd half by someone not named Roy Hibbert was the pirouette, possible four-step prayer by Pat Ewing to tie the score at 69-69 (and that was a goaltending call).
  • Coming into the game, Jon Wallace had shot 28-55 (511%) on 3FGs, while Doug Wiggins was 11-40 (27%). Wallace went 1-7, Wiggins 3-3 on 3FG for the game.
  • Roy Hibbert's 5-7 (71%) FT shooting was his best performance of the year; previously, his best was 8-12 (67%) against Alabama.

That's all for now, but here are the last second highlights, Chvotkin-style (downloadable high-quality video here):
