HOYA MADNESS BRACKET: SWEET SIXTEEN

New, 5 comments

In case you have been living under a rock trying to avoid the coronavirus over the past few months, 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). First and Second Round matchups are now complete and we are on to the Sweet Sixteen!

Below are the links to the First and Second Round matchups:

Delusional Bracket

Jeff Green Region - Sweet 16

(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.

(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.

(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.

(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.

Otto Porter Region - Sweet 16 Matchups

(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.

(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.

(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.

(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).

The JTIII Region - Sweet Sixteen

(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.

(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.”

(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.

(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.

Delusional Bracket - Sweet 16 Matchups

The Jonathan Wallace Region:

(1) Georgetown 96, North Carolina 84 - March 25, 2007: A massive comeback at the Meadowlands. An earth-shattering Jonathan Wallace three. Domination in overtime. No further explanation necessary.

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.

(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.

(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.
