Big East Tournament 2012: Georgetown Vs. Pittsburgh Time, TV Schedule, Bracket And More

The Georgetown Hoyas ended the regular season as the No. 13 team in the country, all but securing them a spot in the NCAA Tournament, but a nice showing in the Big East tournament would surely help when it comes to seeding in said tournament.

The Hoyas will open the Big East tournament against one of the possible sleeper teams when they match up with the Pittsburgh Panthers at Madison Square Garden in a game scheduled for a 2 p.m. tip-off Wednesday on ESPN.

The Panthers, seeded No. 13 in the Big East, rolled over the St. John's Red Storm on Tuesday afternoon for the opportunity to play the Hoyas. Senior guard Ashton Gibbs looked like the Ashton Gibbs everyone expected him to be as he scored 20 points, including four three-pointers, on the way to a 73-59 victory.

Pittsburgh likely won't have as much success against Georgetown on Wednesday, but history shows they have a chance. Pitt picked up a big victory over the Hoyas during the regular season, handing the then Top 10 team a 72-60 loss on Jan. 28. Leading scorers Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark will likely be looking for revenge on Wednesday, though, as they look to avenge one of seven losses they suffered this season.
