Free Throws

– Georgetown was 9-22 from the free-throw line, good for 40.9 percent. It was the second time this season the Hoyas have shot below 50 percent. Georgetown is shooting 52.7 percent from the charity stripe this year, well off last year’s pace of 71.1 percent.

– Said Fairfield Head Coach Ed Cooley on sophomore forward DaJuan Summers: “Did I like him? No, I didn’t like him because we were competing against him. But I think he was a hell of a player. He’s grown up, he really has. He’s done a great job in John’s system.”

– With junior guard Jessie Sapp injured, Rivers played a career-high 27 minutes.

– Senior center Roy Hibbert was held under 10 points for the first time this season. In last year’s 73-60 win over Fairfield, the Stags also held Hibbert in check, limiting him to nine points and four rebounds.

– For the second game in a row, Hibbert recorded four fouls.

– Despite different levels of competition, the Georgetown defense has been remarkably consistent in the number of points it allows per game. In five games, the Hoyas have given up 53, 52, 48 (twice) and 49 points.

– Fairfield turned the ball over just four times Saturday. It was the fewest turnovers Georgetown has forced all season.

– From behind the arc, the Stags dropped 51.1 percent from the first half clip of 7-of-11 to the second half where they shot 1-of-8.

– The Hoyas remained fifth in the Associated Press poll that came out yesterday. Texas leapfrogged Georgetown while UCLA fell from the top-five after the Longhorns upset the Bruins.
