The Hoyas missed out on Nerlens Noel, but John Thompson III still landed a promising center for his 2012 class.Bradley Hayes, a 6-foot-11, 230 lb senior from Jacksonville signed with Georgetown this week, according to recruiting analyst Adam Zagroia, providing the Hoyas coach with another big man option. Connecticut and Texas A&M were also in pursuit of the raw but promising center.Zagoria, who writes for CSNwashington's sister site in New York, reports Hayes recently visited the Georgetown campus and toured the Verizon Center during the Capitals-Rangers series.Yes,Hayes said by text. I signed with Georgetown Tuesday night and Im really excited about attending one of the best universities in the nation and they have a great basketball program.I really connected with Coach John Thompson III and the entire staff. My teammates made me feel that I was really a part of the Hoya family. And the real work starts now.Growing nine inches in three seasons led to injuries - he was 6-foot-2 as a freshman, 6-foot-6 as a sophomore - andHayes played only one full season at the high school level. That was this past season and hedominated with 13 points and 12 rebounds per game. His lack of experience could limit his playing time next season for the Hoyas, who will need to replace graduating senior's Henry Sims' minutes in the middle. Georgetown is also expected tohave the services ofwide-bodied centers Tyler Adams and Moses Ayegbaafter both sat out the 2011-12 season.Hayes joins wing guard DVauntes Smith-Rivera and power forward Brandon Bolden in Georgetowns 2012 class. The Hoyasalso lost senior guard Jason Clark to graduation and 3-point threat Hollis Thompson declared early for the NBA Draft, but return rising sophomore forwards Otto Porter and Greg Whittington.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Anthony Brown threw three touchdown passes and Boston College's defense stifled Virginia in a 41-10 victory on Saturday.
The Eagles (4-4, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their second straight road game, and did it behind Brown, who completed 19 of 24 passes for 275 yards, and a defense that limited Virginia to 247. The Eagles, by contrast, had 275 through the air and 237 on the ground.
Virginia (5-2, 2-1) came up well short in its bid for a fifth straight victory and bowl eligibility for the first time since 2011.
The Eagles used big plays to blow the game open quickly.
Thadd Smith took a jet sweep 76 yards down the sideline to make it 10-0 with 4:16 left in the first quarter. After Virginia went three-and-out, Brown hit Kobay White with a screen pass and White took it 76 yards down the middle of the field to make it 17-0 with 1:57 left.
After another Virginia punt, the Eagles ran a flea flicker, and Brown hit Michael Walker for 46 yards, setting up Brown's 10-yard touchdown throw to tight end Tom Sweeney with no defenders anywhere near him five plays later. He later found Sweeney again, this time from 3 yards out, to give BC a 34-7 lead.
While Brown was having his way with the Cavaliers defense, the Eagles were giving Kurt Benkert fits. They sacked him three times and had him on the run all day. His frustration finally showed in the second quarter when, scrambling left, he threw a left-handed backhand pass that was intercepted.

MADISON, Wis. -- Jonathan Taylor ran for a touchdown and broke the 1,000-yard mark for the season, Alex Hornibrook passed for two scores and No. 5 Wisconsin stayed unbeaten with a 38-13 win over Maryland on Saturday.
Taylor finished with 126 yards on 22 carries, a relatively ho-hum day following two straight 200-yard outings for the running back.
Playing in his seventh contest at Wisconsin (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten), Taylor tied a major college football record shared by five other backs for fewest games by a freshman to get to 1,000 yards.
Hornibrook shook off an interception on his second attempt of the day, finishing 16 of 24 for 225 yards to balance the offense.
Maryland (3-4, 1-3), which has the league's worst defense, could have picked up some early pointers from Wisconsin.
Under heavy pressure, Max Bortenschlager's pass over the middle was intercepted by Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Edwards and returned 54 yards for a touchdown to open the scoring with 12:18 left in the first quarter.
No wonder Maryland rarely took a shot down the field.
But the Terrapins did have some success running the ball out of spread formations, with Ty Johnson leading the way with 83 yards on 16 carries. They dented a defense that was allowing a Big Ten-best 78.8 yards a game for 143 yards overall on 35 carries.
An 11-play, 73-yard drive set up in part by eight runs and a penalty ended with Bortenschlager's 10-yard touchdown pass to Taivon Jacobs to get Maryland to within 28-10 about midway through the third quarter.
Wisconsin, though, sets a high bar in the ground game, and Maryland just couldn't keep up.
Fullback Austin Ramesh's 1-yard touchdown run with 9:10 left in the game ended an 11-play, 76-yard drive, giving Wisconsin a three-score lead that extinguished any faint upset hopes.
