Today's Bubble Watch on provides an accurate look at what the Hoyas will need to accomplish in order to be one of the 34 at-large bids on Selection Sunday:

Georgetown [15-12 (6-10), RPI: 40, SOS: 1] Just when we were ready to write off the Hoyas for good, they found a way to beat Villanova 56-54 on the road Saturday. Still, Georgetown will need to win its next two games -- at St. John's on Tuesday and home against DePaul on Saturday -- to have any chance at an at-large bid. Because Georgetown played the country's most difficult schedule, the NCAA selection committee might be willing to overlook an 8-10 finish in the rugged Big East. But Georgetown would probably also have to win at least two games in the Big East tournament (considering the first would come against a bad opponent). Georgetown is 4-8 against RPI top-50 opponents, beating Connecticut (road), Memphis (home), Villanova (road) and Syracuse (home). Its overall record isn't very good, but Georgetown has more quality wins than most other bubble teams.

I think that 3 more wins gets Georgetown in, but I can also see the Committee putting a 'win and in' label on a potential Big East Tourney game against Providence next Wednesday night.

However, first things first, and a preview of the Johnnies game follows later today.
