Don't be surprised if the Georgetown Hoyas are jumping higher and leaping farther in the 2013 NCAA tournament's round of 64 on Friday inside the Wells Fargo Center. According to Dan Steinberg of The Washington Post, the Georgetown players will be wearing a customized version of the Air Jordan XX8s.

Georgetown basketball's official Twitter account tweeted out a photo of the customized kicks on Wednesday:

Hoyas sophomore guard Jabril Trawick wore the XX8s without the Georgetown "G" logo last week during the 2013 Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden, according to Steinberg

Here's another look at Trawick's customized pair via @J23app on Twitter:

Georgetown is a No. 2 seed in the South Region this March, but Sportsbook.com has No. 3 Florida (+160) and No. 1 Kansas (+260) as the two favorites ahead of the Hoyas (+450) to reach the Final Four in Atlanta.  

According to Sportsbook.com, Georgetown has the ninth-best odds to win the NCAA tournament this year. The Hoyas last won the national championship in 1984. They finished as runners-up in 1985.

If there's good news for Hoyas fans this spring it's this: Georgetown reached the Final Four the last time it was held in Atlanta in 2007. 

The No. 2-seeded Hoyas will begin their 2013 NCAA tournament run on Friday in Philadelphia where they'll take on 15th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast Eagles, who are 13.5-point underdogs according to Covers.com.

Tipoff is set for a 6:50 p.m. ET on TBS.
