First half observations and things I noted:
- I'm writing this entire thing on a touchscreen because I'm an idiot and forgot my keyboard.
- Creighton's much maligned defense appears to have improved, or Georgetown's offense isn't all that great.
- James Milliken is carrying the Bluejays thus far coming off the bench for Khyri Thomas.
- D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera isn't as impressive as I thought he'd be, but he could be saving it for the second half.
- I'd say the crowd is about 93% full tonight.
- Terrance 'Bud' Crawford is in attendance tonight - he's a champion lightweight boxer from Omaha.
- Georgetown managed to rack up the fouls, which proved to be an effective measure since Creighton can't hit freethrows (sortof, they went 5-7 from the line)
- Georgetown had spurts of scoring, managing a pretty good run halfway through the first half.
- Jessie Govan looked pretty good out there for Georgetown.
