8 Straight Offensive Rebounds Seal Hoyas Win vs UCLA

 With 3 possessions left and Georgetown leading just 80-76, the Hoyas missed eight consecutive shots but grabbed the offensive rebound every time.

That's the most we've ever had in a game.

To cap it off, the streak only ended when Reggie Miller fouled out to end a second straight red hot game.

The Hoyas overcame the worst free throw game we recall, going 7 of 19.

The funniest card for me to see in this game was Pooh Richardson, because he didn't have any 3-pointets made on his card, even though I remember him making a shot one year from the hashmark during a game on a set play - not some end of half shot. I looked it up, and he did shoot virtually no 3-pointers the first three years, then his senior year started cranking them up from deep.
