Minor Boxscore Note

In case you failed to click on the Georgetown-St. John's boxscore:
-St. John's did not make a FG until there was only 4:34 left in the first half. I've never seen a 15 minute drought to start a game, but there is a first time for everything.
-Thanks to some Free Throws, St. John's did score 14 points in the first half, but they were only 2 of 16 from the floor in the half while Georgetown was 15 of 29. When your opponent makes almost as many shots as you take, well that's not good.
-Lou Carneseca joined the announce team after halftime recalling a 41-11 deficit when he coached back in a 1982 game against Georgetown. When asked what he said to inspire his troops at halftime of that game, Carneseca replied, "I didn't say much." Did he throw chairs? "What would have been the point of that? We were down by 30."
