Whittington only had made 62 percent of his free throws this season, but he confidently swished the first two before Williams decided to ice the Georgetown forward. "The way he stepped up and hit those first two I was, I guess, not so confident he would miss the third one, but I sure was glad he did," Lockett said.

As a fan I defintely believe in my team as whole. I think they are ready if their name is called. Just guide them through it as their playing. They will be fine. I'm sure the Hoyas will regroup and get back down to business because they'll be playing a lot more. There will be no more long lay offs. It's Big East conference time. It's not only an adventure, it's a journey.
