Live: Temple at Georgetown

5:36 p.m. The live blog is on an hour (or longer) pause. Duty calls. Can you hear my one-year-old screaming?

4:49 p.m.
Temple is 5-27 from the floor in the first half and 1-10 from three.

4:47 p.m. Halftime score: Georgetown 19, Temple 13. This is, by far, the toughest first half of all of the games today. Thirty-two total points in this match-up. No wonder kids are going to Europe to play basketball.

4:39 p.m.
Temple just hit the 10 point mark. Oh, at 3:40 left in the first.

4:36 p.m.
I've always wondered about Greg Monroe's value at the NBA level. I wonder if he will ever really blossom into the player that so many think he can be.

4:33 p.m.
Lavoy Allen is an impressive rebounder. Always has been. History has proven that if you can rebound in high school, you'll be successful in college as a rebounder.

4:28 p.m.
Nothing like a friend setting you straight. Just had a conversation that went as follows:

Friend: "Just saw on your twitter that you've been live blogging all day today on this basketball stuff."
Me: "Yeah, I'm pathetic."
Friend: "What does your wife think?"
Me: "Haven't asked her."
Friend: "I'll clue you in. She's at my house with my wife. They are mocking you."

4:24 p.m.
Looks like the scoring drought/bad shot selection continues. Total of nine points in nine minutes played in this game.

4:23 p.m.
I'm still stunned by the year that Georgetown had last season. How does a team with that much talent go nearly .500?

4:09 p.m. The Lavoy Allen (Temple) vs. Greg Monroe (Georgetown) match-up should be the best of the day so far. Allen is one of the most under-appreciated players on the East Coast.

4:02 p.m. Welcome to the 16th hour of this very ho-hum 24 hour marathon of college basketball games. Temple travels to Georgetown for what should be a good out of conference game. We have Mike Patrick and Len Elmore calling the game. We have two good coaches in John Thompson III and Fran Dunphy. We have some star power (see Greg Monroe). Hopefully we have a good game.
