Posted: Tuesday, November 27, 2001

WASHINGTON -- Wesley Wilson set career highs with 23 points and 13 rebounds to lead No. 16 Georgetown to a 103-69 victory over Grambling State on Monday night.

The Hoyas (4-1) won despite playing without their leading scorer and rebounder Michael Sweetney, reserve guard Tony Bethel and they temporarily lost reserve forward Harvey Thomas.

Paul Haynes scored 19 points to lead Grambling State (1-3).

Sweetney, who averages 19.5 points and 9.5 rebounds, strained his left Achilles' tendon against Towson on Saturday. He intended to play against the Tigers, but elected not to after pregame warmups.

Bethel, who averaged 25 minutes in the first two games, has missed three games with mononucleosis. Thomas injured his left ankle going for the ball with 7:25 remaining in the first half. He played less than a minute in the second half before returning to the bench.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Terrance Meade scored 18 points and Rod Grizzard had 16 points and 11 rebounds as Alabama beat Utah.

The Crimson Tide (4-1) shot 63 percent in the second half and led throughout against the Utes (2-2).

Jeff Johnsen had 11 points and Lance Allred and Britton Johnson 10 points apiece for Utah, which never got closer than 14 points in the second half, trailing by as many as 22.

Alabama has won 19 of its last 20 home games, including its first two this season.
