Another quiet loss for Georgetown just ended, and there’s plenty more to write on it later.
Needless to say, falling to 14-12 with three games to play is simply not good at all.
The Hoyas couldn’t contain Earl Clark, couldn’t keep Terrence Williams from collecting 10 rebounds, couldn’t defend the perimeter, couldn’t run their offense with any amount of patience and couldn’t get it closer than eight in the second half.
It was lethargic, plain and simple, right down to Clark’s steal of a lazy inbound pass in the final minute and the had-no-chance shots Georgetown jacked in the closing moments.
Louisville looked like a Final Four contender. Georgetown looked bound for the NIT.
In another three weeks, that will probably ring even more true.
