The Wildcats, who had nearly erased a 20-point deficit, rebounded the missed foul shot but couldn't get a good shot off at the buzzer. Terrence Jones dribbled across midcourt and heaved a wild three-pointer in traffic that caromed high off the backboard. The Crimson Tide (11-7, 3-1 Southeastern Conference)

Greg Monroe had 24 points and 15 rebounds - both career highs - to lead No. 15 Georgetown to a 72-65 victory over No. 22 Butler last night in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York. Monroe, last season's Big East rookie of the year, recorded his third double-double of the season as the Hoyas (7-0) used their size advantage to control the paint at both ends. Georgetown finished with a 43-30 rebound advantage, outscored the Bulldogs (6-3), 30-16, inside and held Butler forward Matt Howard to nine points on 1-of-9 shooting.

Georgetown's leading scorer Austin Freeman has been diagnosed with diabetes, leaving his status uncertain for the team's upcoming games. Freeman returned to practice Wednesday and yesterday after missing Monday night's loss to West Virginia. He was also limited in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame. Originally thought to have a stomach virus, Freeman learned he had diabetes when he went to the hospital Monday night. Coach John Thompson III said yesterday he is "100 percent" certain Freeman will play again this season, but the coach wouldn't say whether the junior guard will return for tomorrow's regular-season finale against Cincinnati.

Samardo Samuels scored all eight of his points during a late surge and Jerry Smith sank a pair of clutch free throws with 17.8 seconds left as Louisville rallied for a 66-60 upset of No.2 Syracuse in Syracuse, N.Y., yesterday. The Orange (24-2, 11-2 Big East), who held off Connecticut, 72-67, on Wednesday night after squandering a 16-point lead in the second half, had won 11 straight since a loss to Pittsburgh. It was the fifth straight win over the Orange for the Cardinals (16-9, 7-5)

If every game is supposed to be a learning experience regardless of the result, Villanova went out onto the deserted streets of the nation's capital yesterday with a long list of things to study. The second-ranked Wildcats learned that if you are playing in the house of another highly ranked team, you'd better be ready from the opening tip. You'd better find a way to get out on three-point shooters and not handle the basketball on offense as if it were covered in snow. No. 7 Georgetown blitzed the Cats in the first half, racing out to a 23-point lead, and spent the rest of the game holding off a series of comeback attempts that left Villanova on the short end of a 103-90 loss, snapping its 11-game winning streak.

The last time Jonathan Mitchell set a career high for points, it was against Georgetown. There wasn't much else to celebrate then. But the junior forward from Rutgers did it again yesterday, only this time he got to enjoy a huge win with his teammates. Mitchell scored 24 points, three more than he had against the seventh-ranked Hoyas in a 25-point loss last month, and the Scarlet Knights (13-12, 3-9 Big East) beat a Top 10 team for the first time in 7 years, 71-68 over visiting Georgetown (18-6, 8-5)

DaJuan Summers scored 18 points, and 11th-ranked Georgetown won the first of many matchups between ranked Big East teams this season, beating second-ranked Connecticut, 74-63, last night in Hartford, Conn. The Hoyas picked up their seventh straight win. Chris Wright and freshman Greg Monroe both had 16 points for Georgetown (10-1 overall, 1-0 conference), and Austin Freeman added 13. A.J. Price had 16 points and Jeff Adrien 15 for the Huskies (11-1, 0-1), who cut a 12-point deficit early in the second half to three points twice but couldn't get any closer.

After its brick-laden performance at Providence a few days ago, Villanova found itself with the same fuzzy shooting eye Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center against the smart and aggressive defenders of Georgetown. Even so, the eighth-ranked Wildcats almost found enough offense in the final three minutes to pull out the Big East win. But the No. 21 Hoyas rode the excellent play of Austin Freeman to a 69-66 victory in front of a crowd of 19,914. It was a long day of poor shooting and poor shot selection for Villanova (17-4, 5-3 Big East)

Kemba Walker had 31 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds to lead No. 13 Connecticut to a 78-70 victory over No. 9 Georgetown, snapping the visiting Hoyas' eight-game winning streak Wednesday night. Jamal Coombs-McDaniel had 23 points in his second straight big game for the Huskies (20-5, 8-5 Big East), who had lost three of their last five, including two at home. The Hoyas (20-6, 9-5) began their winning streak after starting conference play 1-4. Walker had a highlight reel full of incredible drives to the basket, with the 6-foot-1 junior going under, around, and sometimes it seemed through bigger defenders.

EACH OF THE previous two Decembers, Temple's basketball team had knocked off a previously unbeaten Top 10 opponent at the Liacouras Center. In 2008 it was eighth-ranked Tennessee that came to North Philly and lost by 16 points. And a year ago, it was No. 3 Villanova that went down, this time by 10. It had become sort of an early holiday present. And it's the kind of gift that can keep on giving, all the way to Selection Sunday. Last night, it was No. 9 Georgetown's turn to get into the spirit.
