We’ve mercifully come to the end of the regular season for Georgetown and the Hoyas find themselves as 18 point underdogs against Creighton in Omaha on Senior Night. Of course this isn’t even the biggest spread Georgetown has faced this season as they were 22 point dogs at UConn. A win for Patrick Ewing’s team would be the biggest upset in the history of the program as far as Vegas is concerned.

Around the league Villanova won at Seton Hall last night meaning that we are all but assured of a Hoyas - Wildcats Part 3 next on March 8 at MSG. There is a scenario where Georgetown could still finish 10th but since it’s both really unlikely and equally complicated, I’m not going to go over it here.

Also Georgetown is the only Big East team off this weekend. This gives whoever is making men’s basketball decisions a little more time to think about what they want to do for next season as next season for Georgetown will basically start sometime next week.
