Yes, Chris Wright will play in the NCAA Tournament. Since Wright broke a bone in his left hand Feb. 23, Georgetown maintained he’d be back in time for the NCAA Tournament. So it was little surprise today when Wright confirmed his return via tweet.
A bigger question looms with less than 20 hours until the NCAA selections are unveiled on CBS. What seed will Georgetown land?
Three weeks ago the Hoyas were in the top 10 and streaking toward No. 3 seed. Since then, they’ve dropped five of six games, including the last three without Wright.
The Bracket Project’s compendium of 85 bracket projections (madness even by March standards) pegs Georgetown as a No. 6 seed. The highest prediction is No. 3, the lowest No. 9.
The major projections put Georgetown in the No. 5-7 range. Here are five of them:
Bracketology 101: No. 5 seed vs. No. 12 UTEP. in Denver.
CBS: No. 7 seed vs. Michigan in Charlotte.
D1scourse: No. 7 seed vs. No. 10 Richmond in Denver.
ESPN: No. 7 seed vs. Washington in Denver.
Fox Sports: No. 6 seed vs. USC in Tampa.
