Georgetown 4th in ESPN's Big East Preview

Casual Big East preview from ESPN today.

Perennial Hoyas supporter Jay Bilas has Georgetown finishing 4th in the Conference:

4. Georgetown: The Hoyas were better than their record last year, and finished in the top half of a brutal league in almost every important statistical category. But the Hoyas were deficient on the backboards and in turnover margin, the two areas that provide extra possessions. In short, Georgetown needed to be tougher. This season, the Hoyas will be back in the NCAA tournament. Greg Monroe will be an All-American and Chris Wright and Austin Freeman will take over as better leaders. I like Georgetown's chances.


Additionally, the Preview makes specific mention of Greg Monroe as one of the Conference's '10 Key Players', and Hollis Thompson as one of its '10 Freshmen We Can't Wait to See'.

In case you were wondering, Joe Lunardi has the 7th seeded Hoyas facing 10th seeded Florida in Jacksonville in round 1 in an early and unequivocally absurd Bracketology.
