Georgetown Upset by Rutgers: Hoyas Lose 71-68 In Worst Game of the Year

Look ahead to Villanova, lose to South Florida.

Look ahead to Syracuse, lose to Rutgers.

The Hoyas handed the Scarlet Knights their first victory against a Top Ten opponent in seven years, as poor shooting from the field and foul line plagued Georgetown throughout the game.

Chris Wright mailed in one of his worst performances as a Hoya, taking ill-advised and selfish shots en route to a 2-8 performance from the field while playing uninspired and lazy defense.  Austin Freeman failed to break the 20 point barrier for the second game in a row and shot a woeful 1-5 from beyond the arc.  Greg Monroe, despite leading the Hoyas with 19 points, contributed 5 of the Hoyas 14 turnovers.  

Lot more blame to go around in the coming days, as the Hoyas have a four day break to re-evaluate things.  Georgetown has not won three straight Big East games since the 2007-08 season.  Looking forward to the players' uplifting and forward-looking Tweets, shame the rest of us can't move on as fast.

Until we beat the teams that we are supposed to destroy, this year has first-round exit written all over it.

If anyone needs me, I'll be at the warehouse.
