Last night at Madison Square Garden in New York


Win or lose, the Hoyas entered play looking like a lock for a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament draw. In all probability, the combination of Georgetown’s march through the Big East and Texas A&M;’s early exit from the Big 12 tournament jumped the Hoyas ahead of the Aggies and possibly ahead of soft-scheduled Memphis.


0 Shots senior Aaron Gray made on nine attempts in the first half. Pittsburgh’s all-conference center failed to score before halftime, while Georgetown center Roy Hibbert dominated Gray on both ends of the floor. Hibbert scored 14 first-half points and nullified Gray at the other end to stake the Hoyas to a 32-17 lead at the break.

7 Big East championships for Georgetown, more than any other team in the league. The Hoyas’ title performance elevated them out of a deadlock with Connecticut and earned the school its first conference tournament title since 1989.
