Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

The draw: Despite dropping two of its final three games, the Hoyas held on for a No. 3 seed in the Midwest regional, which they will play Friday at approximately 3:10 p.m.. Georgetown will play Belmont, the winner of the Atlantic Sun, in a rematch of a 2007 first round game the Hoyas won 80-55.

Number of note: 0

Combined NCAA tournament victories for Georgetown’s roster. The Hoyas have lost to Davidson (2008 second round), Ohio (2010) and Virginia Commonwealth (2011) in their last three NCAA games.

Projection: These Hoyas don’t look like the sort to suffer a first-round flameout like their two immediate predecessors. It is a group that plays well together and smart in general. But they haven’t done much of note away from Verizon Center since the start of 2012, and a stay deep into March seems unlikely.
