Record: 25-6 overall. 14-4 in Big East (first place).
Best Wins: Louisville 53-51, at Syracuse 57-46, Marquette 63-55
Worst Losses: at South Florida 61-58, at Villanova 67-57, Pittsburgh 73-45
Why They're Here: After an overtime loss to Syracuse in the Big East semifinal, the chase for a No. 1 seed has officially come to an end for the Hoyas. Still, with the run they went on over the final two months of the season, they're in good shape to be on that second line.
Best-Case Scenario: Team chemistry is a crazy thing. With Greg Whittington in the lineup, the Hoyas were a bubble team. After he was ruled academically ineligible, they finished out the regular season 14-2. Whittington isn't a bad player by any means, but as long as he doesn't come back, the Hoyas could win it all.
Who They're Watching: For the time being, the Hoyas slip to a No. 3 seed, as Miami advanced to the ACC championship game with a convincing win over NC State. After New Mexico beat UNLV on Saturday night, Georgetown can probably forget about getting back up to a No. 2 seed.
Biggest Tournament Weakness: The Hoyas have been labeled as a low-scoring team, and rightly so. Even during their post-Whittington success, they've averaged just 66.2 points per game—precisely what Wisconsin has averaged all season. If for some strange reason Otto Porter isn't scoring in a game, who else is going to step up?
