Georgetown's next chance at redemption and keeping its NCAA Tourney hopes alive comes Thursday night at Marquette.
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.
