WASHINGTON, D.C. \u2014 The Washington Wizards weren\u2019t playing until Saturday night, and with Gilbert Are- nas and Javaris Crittenton already suspended by the NBA, there was a good chance there weren\u2019t any guns at the
afternoon, Georgetown shot the lights out against No. 8 Duke.
In one of the best offensive performances in school his- tory, the No. 7 Hoyas (16-4) shot 71.7 percent and led near- ly the whole way as the Blue Devils (17-4) lost their fourth road contest of the season, this one with an 89-77 scoreline that could have been much worse. Duke is now 1-4 in true road contests this year.

Three freshmen were robbed at 1 a.m. Saturday morning in the Wachovia bank parking lot at the corner of Ninth and Main Streets.
Although one student, John Besa, was shot twice in the leg by a BB gun and had to be treated by emergency medical services, none of the victims were seriously injured.
The freshmen, Besa, Mike Coggins and Melanie Weingart, told Duke University Police that three black men wearing black winter coats and bandanas over their faces approached them in the parking lot and demanded money. One suspect was armed with a BB-gun and another was armed with a knife, according to an alert on DUPD\u2019s Web site. The victims reported that the sus- pects took between $125 and $130 in cash, but no other property was taken.
\u201cAt the time I was freaked out, it took me a while to process what was happen- ing,\u201d Besa said. \u201cThe first shot was to get my attention, the second shot was probably because I hesitated... after I understood what was happening, I just handed him the
A burst of uncharacteristi- cally cold weather blanketed Duke and the surrounding area Friday with 6 inches of snow, turning the Gothic Wonderland into a winter wonderland.
both the University and the city of Durham have taken measures to respond to the severe weather.

called because of the 6 inches of snowfall Durham received Friday night, said Head Line Monitor Zach White, a senior. The grace period will be in ef- fect until Monday morning and could be extended depending on weather conditions, White added.

Duke study finds
a \u2018serious\u2019 threat
Next Fall, upperclassmen women may be eligible to live in two new residential communities on campus\u2014the Women\u2019s Housing Option and the Panhellenic Associa- tion\u2019s space on Central Campus.
Although the spaces were granted on different dates, both are part of a campus-wide initiative to promote women\u2019s culture, said Associate Dean for Residential Life Joe Gonzalez.
\u201cI think over the years we\u2019ve had a deficit of the ability of women to influence campus culture to the extent men have been able to, in part due to who currently has space and which students have sections,\u201d Gonzalez said.
The WHO will be located in Few Quadrangle above the Women\u2019s Center, and Panhel housing will be in units 201 and 202 on Alexander Ave.
The possibility of homegrown terrorism among Muslim- Americans is a \u201cserious, but limited, problem,\u201d according to a recent study.
The study, published by two Duke professors and a professor from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, states that the rate of homegrown terror- ism among American Muslims is low and that Muslim- American communities have continually denounced radical Islam.
\u201cCompared to other parts of the world, we have many examples of acts of terror-related violence,\u201d said study co- author David Schanzer, associate professor of the practice for public policy. \u201cThe question is why that is. We wanted to look at what the Muslim-American community was do- ing to prevent [homegrown terrorism].\u201d
Schanzer, who is also director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security, said Americans need to understand the Muslim community better and that Mus- lim communities need to cooperate more closely with law- enforcement agencies.
One obstacle to this cooperation is increased anti- Muslim bias in America since the Sept. 11 terrorist at- tacks. The study noted that despite this bias, Muslim- American communities feel strongly connected to the
