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.
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.
Georgetown's next chance at redemption and keeping its NCAA Tourney hopes alive comes Thursday night at Marquette.
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.
Markel Starks scored 22 points and the Georgetown Hoyas avoided another second half letdown against Xavier with a much-needed 74-52 win.

The Hoyas haven't just defeated St. John's six straight times, but done so by large margins. Both teams enter Sunday's rematch on four-game winning streaks.
