The 2012 Big East Tournament kicks off today with a full slate of action live from Madison Square Garden in New York fucking City, and we here at THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON are bringing you all the action as it happens.
Georgetown team preview after The Jump:
SB Nation New York has put together team by team previews for all of the Big East teams, and check out this preview of the Tournament.
Below is Georgetown's Preview:
Not much was expected from the Hoyas this season, but a few big early season wins over the likes of Memphis, Alabama and Louisville got heads turning and upped the confidence in D.C. Georgetown finished 22-7 (12-6 in conference play) and notably gave rival Syracuse a real run for its money at the Carrier Dome back on Feb. 8 in an overtime loss. They’re won’t wow anyone, but can easily find themselves in the Big East Final if the matchups fall right.
As far as Vegas is concerned, the Syracuse Wonder Joints are the betting favorite to win the Big East Tournament at 1:1 odds, Marquette is at 7/2, and the 5th seeded Hoyas are 11/2. According to this site, Georgetown has a 9% chance of winning the Tournament.
Though your Hoyas don't play until tomorrow, Georgetown's next opponent will be the winner of the Pittsburgh - St. John's game that tips at 2pm eastern.
