News: Georgetown Beats UMBC, Will Face Davidson Sunday

The Hoyas today advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament, topping UMBC, 66-47. Not a pretty game, but the Hoyas did what they needed to do to win. No full box available yet, but here are some of the key stats:
  • Hoyas 64.3% from 2-point range, including 69.2% in the first half.

  • UMBC 33.5% from 2-point range.

  • Hoyas 42.9% from the charity stripe. Not a great performance.

  • Hoyas turned the ball over on 24.8% of possessions. Tough to win if they do that again on Sunday.

  • Most shots: Wallace, followed by Hibbert. Efficient players taking the lead offensively! I approve.

  • When your blogger takes a half day off work he intends to be home in time for the Hoya game, not work until 6:30. /Whine off.

I'll be back tomorrow (Saturday) with more on what you can expect from the Davidson Wildcats, and hopefully a full box score as well.
UPDATE (3/22/08, 1915 CT): No full box still, so I'll just post what I have.
