DaJuan Summers' mother, Twana Summers, claims that her youngest son, 8-year-old Malik, can tell you what his older brother is going to do each time down the court. It's the kind of information opponents would love to have on the McDonogh junior. "Malik can tell you every play what his brother will do before it happens," Twana said. If his opponents have a clue, it's not evident. DaJuan, 6 feet 9 and 225 pounds, has a soft and accurate shot from the outside and the quickness and explosiveness to score from the inside with an assortment of dunks.

For DaJuan Summers, the tattoo holds a certain power. It provides him solace and strength by reminding him of his roots. "It has my name on it," says his mother, Twana, a supermarket meat cutter who raised her three kids alone in Baltimore after her husband died when DaJuan was just 3. "And it has the names of [his sister] Regina and [brother] Malik. He says when things get tight, he grabs that tattoo."

GOING TO ATLANTA Georgetown. John Thompson III has the kind of team a father - his - could love, winning with a defense ranked fifth in points allowed (56.5) and a dominating frontcourt led by juniors Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert. Green could be one of the most underappreciated players in the country while the 7-2, 278-pound Hibbert leads the nation in field goal percentage (69.3). The X-factor for the Hoyas could be freshman DaJuan Summers (McDonogh), who scored in double figures 16 times.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - As Maryland and Georgetown played each other for the first time in seven years, the expressions along the respective benches said it all. Georgetown's players jumped up and down on the sideline, clapping and cheering on their teammates. Maryland's players sat still in a somber row. The difference in the game was clear in their faces. The No. 21 Hoyas dominated the Terps for every minute of yesterday's third-place game in the Old Spice Classic at the Milk House at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex, beating Maryland, 75-48.

Luke Harangody didn't let being in foul trouble against an athletic Georgetown team bother him. Neither did Notre Dame coach Mike Brey. Harangody thought he would spend about 10 minutes on the bench when he picked up his fourth foul with 15:17 left and the 13th-ranked Fighting Irish up by six points. Instead, he sat less than four minutes, then scored 10 points and grabbed five rebounds down the stretch to help host Notre Dame beat the ninth-ranked Hoyas, 73-67, last night and end a five-game losing streak to Georgetown.

Georgetown had just finished its eighth win in nine games. John Thompson III was anything but pleased. The No. 15 Hoyas earned a 69-58 victory over Mount St. Mary's yesterday in Washington, but one would have never guessed it from talking to Georgetown's coach. "I'm not sure I'm pleased with anyone," he said. "We did not play well." The Hoyas players are ending a grinding two-week exam period, but Thompson didn't want to attribute this subpar performance to academics, either. "Mentally we had a bad day today," Thompson said.
