Markel Starks scored 27 points in his final college game as Georgetown's season came to an end with a high-scoring loss at Florida State.
On a day in which Duke fell to Mercer, the Hoyas talked about lessons learned and dealing with "Cinderella" one year after their own setback to a certain Atlantic Sun school.
The Hoyas look to make the best of the non-NCAA Tournament scenario when they host former Big East foe West Virginia in the opening round of the NIT.
The Hoyas return to the NIT for the first time since 2009. They will first face a former Big East foe in West Virginia.
The Hoyas might not need to win the Big East Tournament in order to reach the NCAA Tournament, but they might. Winning four games in four days in New York this week solves all their problems.
Georgetown's leading scorer Markel Starks became the latest Hoya selected first-team All-Big East. Sophomore D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera received second-team honors.
Georgetown's NCAA Tournament hopes comes down to four days in NYC. Maybe the Hoyas only need two wins in the Big East Tourney for an NCAA bid, but it's close.
Hoyas fall at Villanova, 77-59, putting their NCAA tournament hopes in jeopardy. Have they done enough to earn a berth?
The last two times the Hoyas played in Philadelphia, bad things happened. Georgetown could secure its bid into the next NCAA's with a win Saturday at No.6 Villanova.
Georgetown coach John Thompson III said his team was "floating" back in January, trying to reshape its identity when injuries and academic issues contributed to a five-game losing streak.
Georgetown's next chance at redemption and keeping its NCAA Tourney hopes alive comes Thursday night at Marquette.
It seemed appropriate that John Thompson III was fiddling with a stopwatch as he stood in the lobby of Georgetown's on-campus gym, speaking about a Hoyas team that has ventured far off-script. Time is running out in a season in which "start," ''stop" and "reset" became more than just buttons to press during a practice drill.
If the new Big East hasn't exactly caught college basketball by storm, Georgetown can be blamed for a failure to supply at least part of the thunder and lightning. Picked to finish second in the preseason coaches' poll, the Hoyas have been so inconsistent that, if the regular season ended today, they would be one of the four bottom-rung teams forced to play an extra game in the conference tournament.
Georgetown looks to wipe away the bad taste of two straight losses with improved defense in Saturday's morning matchup against Xavier. Tips at 11 :30 a.m. from Verizon Center.
With the season winding down, the Hoyas desperate for a win and trying to avoid another slow start, coach John Thompson III inserted Jabril Trawick into the starting lineup. Nice move, coach.
: At Friday's practice, Thompson said it was "imperative" the frontcourt produced.
"It's a very, very short turnaround," Thompson said. "But so what. We have to show up, we have to play, we have to win."
