In ESPN.com’s Bracketology released Monday, Georgetown was still in the tournament field before the loss to Louisville and with the idea that the Hoyas made a tremendous run in the Big East tournament.
In what had to be considered a must-win game, Georgetown played awful, getting pounded by double digits at home.
So how realistic is it to think that the Hoyas can put together a five-games-in-five-days run at Madison Square Garden to earn automatic entry into the Big Dance? Not at all.
The Hoyas are as good as done.
It’s pretty amazing if you think about it.
There’s plenty of talent there, including stud big man Greg Monroe. But he spends more time passing the ball from the high post rather than using his length to get easy shots five feet from the bucket.
And remember when Georgetown was the best defensive team in the Big East for the last couple years? Seems like a distant memory doesn’t it?
Louisville basically ran a layup drill for the first 10 minutes of the game and made its first nine shots. You’d think at home, in what was basically a last stand, there’d be a little defense somewhere in there. Nope.
No matter, Georgetown will have time to work on it in the NIT.
