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).
Below are the links to the previous matchups:
FINAL FOUR - 1ST MATCHUP:
(1) Davidson 74, Georgetown 70 - March 23, 2008: This #10 seeded Davidson squad overcame a 17-point second half deficit to edge the #2 Hoyas in Raleigh. Curry scored 25 points in the second half, Roy Hibbert was in constant foul trouble and the Hoyas just didn’t have an answer. This was another potential Final Four team and it was also the final game played by star seniors Hibbert, Wallace and Ewing Jr. Those of you who attended this game (in North Carolina!) will remember it as basically a home game for a team seeded tenth. Those of you who watched this one at home will remember that our lead was so big that CBS switched games in the second half. Yeah.
(1) Florida Gulf Coast 78, Georgetown 68 - March 22, 2013: No explanation necessary. This loss came less than a week after the heartbreaking loss to Syracuse in the BET, making it possibly the worst week in the history of Georgetown basketball since at least 1985.
