UPSET—Rutgers 71, No. 8 Georgetown 68. Rutgers is God-awful, so this confounds and astounds me. Greg Monroe continues to learn how to be a leader, even if the teams around his is erratic.

And for the 10th time this season: Will we ever get to trust Georgetown? No. Them and the Yellow Jackets. They’re both the same.

What looked like a trend is now a real concern.

Wright was 2-of-8 from the field for six points, and had two assists and two turnovers. The Hoyas entered the game with a 2-5 record when Wright does not score in double figures, a stat that Hill was very familiar with. "We held him to six, so I guess now they’re 2-6," Hill said.

The victory was the second-biggest in program history, dating to a 1982 win over then-No. 6 West Virginia. Rutgers (13-12, 3-9) hadn’t beaten a Top 10 team since a Gary Waters-led club beat No. 9 Notre Dame in 2003.

Second-biggest upset in program history, next to No. 6 West Virginia in 1982. Dane Miller’s flying, one-handed put-back that gave RU the lead for good with 21 seconds left will go down as one of the great plays in program lore.
