Bobby’s Keys to Watch:

  1. Rookie Rotations: Do freshmen Kobe Clark and Jamari Sibley play in the last scheduled game where Georgetown is guaranteed to be favored or does Patrick Ewing still give Jahvon Blair and Jamorko Pickett 35 minutes apiece?
  2. Future coach on the sideline? It’s worth monitoring new Coppin State Assistant Coach Kevin Braswell from afar as a potential candidate on a future Georgetown staff. Braswell has been an assistant and head coach in New Zealand following his playing days.
