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.
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.

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.
