Today's game

March 23, 1996

East Regional final

At Georgia Dome, Atlanta

Massachusetts (34-1) vs. Georgetown (29-7)

Time: 6 p.m.

TV: Chs. 13, 9

Line: Massachusetts by 1 1/2

Outlook: No. 4 Georgetown, the second seed, will attempt to do what four other Top 10 teams have done this season, beat No. 1 UMass. The focus is on a pair of All-Americans, junior C Marcus Camby (20.3 ppg, 8.3 rpg) for the Minutemen and sophomore G Allen Iverson (25.1 ppg, 4.8 apg) for the Hoyas, but both have excellent supporting casts. UMass tries to funnel penetrators toward Camby, but he has been in foul trouble in the past two tournament games, and Georgetown will win any battle of attrition. The other scorers to watch are freshman G Victor Page (12.9) and senior C Othella Harrington (12.2) for the Hoyas, and senior F Donta Bright (14.5) and junior G Carmelo Travieso (12.4) for the Minutemen.
