Just got over to College Park for Maryland’s spring game, but the day started over at Georgetown.
The Hoyas ripped Rutgers 15-7 in a game that wasn’t even that close (it was 15-4 with two minutes to go). It was also a game that helped Georgetown quite a bit.
Of course, the Hoyas were substantially hurt when Brown upended Cornell today. There’s only so many at-large spots out there, and the Bears very well may have laid claim to one of them.
Still, it was probably Georgetown’s best game of the season, particularly on offense. The Hoyas, never the world-beaters as shooters, were efficient when in mattered, and received help from just about everywhere on the roster.
Look, Rutgers isn’t very good, and beating the Scarlet Knights isn’t in itself much of an accomplishment. But Georgetown does look better, and its chances of reaching the NCAA tournament remain alive as a result of the rout.
