Georgetown Falls Over the Cliff, Wins Nothing

It all seemed to be going right for Georgetown this year. They started the season 12-3, including wins over Maryland, Memphis, UConn and Syracuse. But then, right around January 17th when they played Duke, things went terribly wrong. Since then, they’ve won two of 11 games and, after being crushed at home last night by Louisville, appeared doomed. ↵

↵⇥Once you lose and go through a stretch like we're going through, you don't feel as good about yourself. It's as simple as that." ↵⇥

↵
↵He’s right, it is simple: In order to have any chance of making the Tournament, the Hoyas are going to have to win their last three, and then win at least two games in the Big East Tournament. That’s a long, hard fall off the cliff for a team that was in the top 10 about six weeks ago.↵
