HOYA MADNESS BRACKET: ROUND OF 32

New, 29 comments

In case you have been living under a rock trying to avoid the coronavirus over the past month, we have been slowly revealing two monster 64-team brackets: one for Hoya Madness (The Delusional Bracket) and one for Hoya Sadness (The Cynical Bracket). Importantly, the date range for these high highs and low lows will only span the last 16 years of this program’s history (the entire JTIII and Ewing eras). Round 1 matchups are now complete and we are on to the Round of 32!

Below are the links to the Round 1 matchups:

HOYA MADNESS ROUND 1 BRACKET RESULTS

HOYA SADNESS ROUND 1 BRACKET RESULTS

.........

The Jeff Green Region - Second Round

(2) Georgetown 57, Syracuse 46 - February 23, 2013: The Carrier Dome is officially closed. Otto Porter’s 33 points allowed the Hoyas to close down the Dome in style, in front of the largest crowd to ever attend a college basketball game, and on the same day that Carmelo’s jersey was retired.

vs.

(7) Georgetown 85, Notre Dame 82 – January 24, 2006: The “Colin Falls’ kick-out” game. This was a big-time double overtime win in South Bend, just three days after that mammoth program-defining win against Duke. The Hoyas squandered a 15-point first half lead and survived Colin Falls’ four-point play with 1.8 seconds left in regulation to win a thriller. Darrel Owens and Roy Hibbert had 18 points apiece.

(3) Georgetown 89, Duke 77 - January 30, 2010: The Obama game. In this rare mid-season battle between two top ten teams, the Hoyas smothered Duke in front of President Obama to defeat a team that would eventually go on to win the national championship. Monroe, Wright and Freeman each scored over 20 points. It was a beautiful thing.

vs.

(6) Georgetown 74, Connecticut 63 - December 29, 2008: In our final game of 2008, on the road against the #2 ranked team in the country, the #11 Hoyas surprised the Huskies in the first game of conference play. DaJuan Summers led four Hoyas in double figures and Greg Monroe poured in an impressive 16 points, including two huge three-pointers, and four assists. Shockingly, this team didn’t even qualify for the Tourney. But at the time, this win felt incredible.

(1) Georgetown 66, Vanderbilt 65 - March 23, 2007: The Jeff Green game-winner created a frenzy at the Meadowlands and sent Georgetown to the Elite 8. He didn’t walk, haters.

vs.

(9) Georgetown 69, Villanova 66 – January 29, 2011: This was a massive win at the Wachovia Center against the #8 ranked team in the country. Austin Freeman scored a game-high 30 points and dished out six assists to keep the two Coreys at bay. Henry Sims played a pivotal role off the bench, as he collected five big rebounds and did an effective job against ‘Nova’s bigs.

(4) Georgetown 64, Syracuse 56 – February 9, 2011: JTIII’s first win at the Carrier Dome and a special victory for seniors Chris Wright, Austin Freeman and Julian Vaughn. In a back-and-forth contest, Wright worked his way into the middle of Syracuse’s zone to dish out a team-high nine assists. The win was Georgetown’s seventh in a row and ended a nine-year string of losses at the Dome.

vs.

(5) Georgetown 53, Louisville 51 - January 26, 2013: The Aaron Bowen tip-in. After an acrobatic lay-in by Aaron Bowen proved to be the winning field goal with over three minutes to go, the Hoyas notched a key home win against the #5 team in the country, a win that would prove to be gigantic in Georgetown’s march to the top of the conference. Markel Starks and Otto Porter scored 17 apiece for the Hoyas.

The Otto Porter Region - Second Round

(2) Georgetown 84, Notre Dame 82 - March 9, 2007: This was a mammoth win against a hated rival in the semifinals of the BET. Jeff Green had 30 points, including the game-winner with 13 seconds left, to give the Hoyas the gutsy win, after having trailed the Irish by 14 in the first half.

vs.

(7) Georgetown 54, Northern Iowa 49 – March 17, 2006: JTIII’s first Tournament win. Despite trailing by four points at the half, Georgetown clamped down on defense and Roy Hibbert played well (17 points, nine rebounds), as the #7 seeded Hoyas edged the #10 seeded Panthers to earn a first round victory and a trip to play Ohio State.

(3) Georgetown 72, Connecticut 69 - January 12, 2008: The Roy Hibbert three-pointer that made the arena shake. Big Roy sank a three-point game-winner to cap a lovely Georgetown comeback and give the Hoyas a huge win. Hibbert’s 20 points and eight rebounds were impressive enough, but his earth-shattering three capped Georgetown’s 11-2 run in the final three minutes to propel Georgetown into first place in the early part of the Big East schedule. The Hoyas overcame tremendous shooting by A.J. Price (17 points, nine assists) and Doug Wiggins (15 points).

vs.

(6) Georgetown 58, West Virginia 57 - January 26, 2008: The Patrick Ewing Jr. game. This is the game that ended with a thunderous Patrick Ewing Jr. block to seal #9 Georgetown’s comeback victory. After the Hoyas overcame a ten point deficit in the second half and held West Virginia without a field goal over an eight minute span, Jessie Sapp hit a big-time three-pointer from the top of the key with only six seconds to go to seal the win and keep the Hoyas in a tie for first place in the conference. WVU fans proceeded to scream and shout and lob objects onto the court after Ewing blocked Da’Sean Butler’s shot along the baseline. Although Butler would eventually get his revenge against the Hoyas two years later, on this day, no one in Morgantown was dancing to “Country Roads”.

The Otto Porter Region - Second Round

(1) Georgetown 61, Syracuse 39 - March 9, 2013: The rivalry is officially over. We clinched first place in the Big East regular season, dominated Syracuse in our final regular season conference match-up, and held ‘Cuse to its lowest point total in the Boeheim era.

vs.

(8) Georgetown 75, Maryland 48 – November 30, 2008: The Hoyas absolutely put on a clinic against the Terps in the Old Spice Classic. Everything was clicking as Georgetown led by as many as 38 points, while holding Greivis Vasquez to a mere two points. The Beltway rivalry was officially renewed.

(4) Georgetown 103, Villanova 90 - February 6, 2010: The infamous snow game. With a blizzard outside, the Hoyas put on a torrid shooting display inside. Behind Austin Freeman’s 25 points, Jason Clark’s 24 points (including six threes), and Greg Monroe’s 19 points, eight rebounds and six assists, the #7 Hoyas raced out to a 19-point halftime lead and held on late to edge the #2 ‘Cats. Scotty Reynolds and Corey Fisher led Villanova with 23 points apiece. The lone weak spot for the Hoyas was the 59 points they allowed Villanova to score in the second half; this would later haunt the Hoyas in March when they allowed a hot-shooting Ohio team to do the same for two halves.

vs.

(5) Georgetown 63, Notre Dame 47 – January 21, 2013: In their final Big East game against Notre Dame, the Hoyas went into Purcell Pavilion and completely dominated the Irish. Celebrating the sixth-year anniversary of “The Duke Game,” Georgetown held Notre Dame to season lows in points, field goal percentage and assists. Otto Porter led the way with 19 points, as the Hoyas thoroughly embarrassed Jack Cooley and his friends. Mike Brey said it was like watching men against boys.

The JTIII Region - Second Round

(2) Georgetown 65, Pittsburgh 42 - March 10, 2007: Big East champions. This was a coronation, as the Hoyas secured their first Big East tournament title since 1989 and their first and only title under JTIII.

vs.

(7) Georgetown 55, Notre Dame 54 – January 23, 2005: Hibbert dunks, Hoyas win. This is the game that ended with a game-winning Roy Hibbert dunk at the buzzer. After leading for most of the second half, the Hoyas gave up a three-pointer to Colin Falls with just six seconds to go, and then Ashanti Cook raced down the court, found a streaking Hibbert and watched the big fella throw the ball through the hoop for the victory. Keep in mind that this was when Hibbert was still uncoordinated and could barely make it up and down the court. It was a good win against a hated rival. Brandon Bowman and Jeff Green played well against the likes of Chris Quinn, Chris Thomas and Falls.

(3) Georgetown 70, Ohio State 52 - March 19, 2006: Buckeye beatdown. In this NCAA second round matchup, the #7 Hoyas smoked the #2 Buckeyes behind Roy Hibbert’s 20 points and 14 rebounds. Notably, only four Georgetown players scored in this game. Brandon Bowman missed all six of his shots.

vs.

(6) Georgetown 70, Marquette 68 - March 1, 2008: The “Wallace gets fouled while shooting a three” game. In what proved to be a nail biter, the #11 Hoyas edged the #21 Golden Eagles after Jonathan Wallace, who was fouled while shooting a three with 2.8 seconds left in regulation, hit all three of his free throws to send the game into overtime. Hibbert and Wallace led Georgetown with 20 points apiece, while DaJuan Summers pulled down an impressive 14 rebounds. A balanced attack from the Hoyas was just enough to defeat Marquette’s three-headed monster: Wesley Matthews (22 points), Jerel McNeal (17 points) and Dominic James (15 points). The win set the stage for an epic showdown with Louisville the following week to determine which team would win the Big East regular season.

The JTIII Region - Second Round

(1) Georgetown 87, Duke 84 - January 21, 2006: The game that put us back on the map. We beat the undefeated #1 team in the country and restored the program to national prominence.

vs.

(8) Georgetown 84, Eastern Washington 74 – March 19, 2015: The year we (finally) took care of business in the first round of the NCAA Tourney. This up and down affair, while not always pretty, ended emphatically with a Jabril dunk. Bradley Hayes was the unsung hero (after other bigs were in foul trouble) and Georgetown seemingly exorcised a bunch of demons by actually winning a game in the Tourney against a lesser opponent. This, sadly, was the last time Georgetown won a postseason game of any kind.

(4) Georgetown 72, West Virginia 55 – March 14, 2008: In the semifinals of the 2008 BET, Georgetown left no doubt that it deserved to win these teams’ earlier matchup in Morgantown (that ended with the controversial Ewing block), as the Hoyas absolutely pasted the Mountaineers by 17. The day before, Georgetown hit a barrage of threes to beat a pesky Villanova squad, as Roy Hibbert was held scoreless. In this contest, Hibbert absolutely dominated, scoring 25 points and grabbing 13 boards. After the game, he said, “I’m a monster. I’m a monster. Be afraid.”

vs.

(5) Georgetown 78, Villanova 58 - January 19, 2015: This was the win that finally put Georgetown on the national radar in 2015, as the unranked Hoyas raced out to a 22-point halftime lead and never looked back against the #4 Wildcats. DSR and Isaac Copeland paced the Hoyas with 17 points apiece, while Jabril Trawick filled in admirably at the point, while also using his patented hard-nosed defense to fuel the Hoyas’ offense with four steals and one memorable step-back three-pointer at the end of the first half.

Jonathan Wallace Region - Second Round

(2) Georgetown 91, Syracuse 84 - March 11, 2010: This was the quarterfinals of the 2K10 revenge tour. The #8 Hoyas defeated the #1 Orange on a Thursday afternoon at the Garden. Chris Wright led the way with 27 points and Greg Monroe poured in 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.

vs.

(10) Georgetown 64, Michigan St. 60 – February 1, 2014: Super Sunday. It was Super Bowl weekend at Madison Square Garden and the struggling Hoyas put together a late-game run to overpower the banged-up #7 Spartans. It was easily Georgetown’s best win in an otherwise frustrating season. Jabril Trawick ended the game with an emphatic dunk to seal the victory. JTIII won his one-and-only game against Tom Izzo.

(3) Georgetown 55, Louisville 52 - March 8, 2008: Senior Day at the Phone Booth. In this final game of the 2007-08 regular season, the Hoyas edged Louisville to claim their second regular season title in a row. Austin Freeman led the way with 15 points and DaJuan Summers hit a dramatic three from the corner with less than a minute to go to give the Hoyas the win. Hibbert, Wallace, Crawford and Ewing celebrated by posing with the plaque at the end of the game.

vs.

(6) Georgetown 79, Connecticut 78 – February 27, 2013: The Hartford thriller. In a game that Georgetown should have lost multiple times, the Otto Porter-led #7 Hoyas surged back from seven points down in double overtime to keep their massive winning streak alive and steal one at the XL Center. Despite only scoring one point in the first half, Porter erupted for 21 in the second half and overtime to help the Hoyas edge UConn. The lasting image from this game is Otto Porter streaking down the court for a silky-smooth lay-in with twelve seconds to go to cap an 8-0 run to end the game.

vs.

(9) Georgetown 111, Missouri 102 - November 30, 2010: In a fast-paced, high-scoring affair, Georgetown squandered a seven-point halftime lead, tied the game at the end of regulation with a dramatic Chris Wright three, and then used Jason Clark’s hot hand in overtime for the big victory. Austin Freeman led the Hoyas with 31 points, Wright chipped in with 21 points and ten assists, and Jason Clark hit three massive three-pointers in overtime to seal the win. The speedy Marcus Denmon led the Tigers with 27 points.

Tyrese Rice scored 22 points for the Eagles, who had opened an eight-point lead in the second half before Georgetown roared back in the first matchup between these teams since BC left the Big East for the ACC.

vs.

(5) Georgetown 72, Connecticut 69 – January 9, 2010: The Austin Freeman game. Matching the same exact score as their 2008 win against the Huskies, the #12 Hoyas stormed back from a 15-point deficit to shock the #13 Huskies by scoring 47 points in the second half. Freeman netted 28 of his 33 points in the second frame, as Georgetown held UConn without a bucket in the last three and a half minutes. After the game, Jim Calhoun said: “Part of the thing is you hear sometimes about Georgetown, ‘They run a five-man system. Nobody is a star.’ Austin Freeman was a star today, I’ll tell you that.” Yes, he was.
