This is it. We are one day away from Georgetown’s first game in the NCAA tournament, a second-round matchup with Florida Gulf Coast. Over the next weeks, the Hoyas will participate in the culmination of their season, and the Big East regular season co-champs will hope to overcome a legacy of early-round disappointment in recent years. This week’s link drop serves as a primer for Georgetown’s first weekend — perhaps the beginning of a deep run.
The South Regional
- Grantland’s South Regional preview has Georgetown losing to VCU in the Elite Eight. Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated has Georgetown in the Final Four. ESPN’s South preview doesn’t pick a winner but does put Georgetown on upset alert in the round of 64.
- President Obama has the Hoyas losing to Florida in the Sweet 16.
Friday’s Game Against Florida Gulf Coast
- Although experts have called FGCU the most dangerous 15-seed, the Hoyas should have the size and talent to outmuscle the Eagles, especially considering St. John’s double-digit victory over FGCU earlier this season.
