    On a given night anything can happen, but GT was maybe as a good a defensive team as I saw this past year. They held Louisville to 51. That team was nowhere to be seen tonight.

    Agreed but FGCU did beat Miami (The U) earlier this season. They're legit.

    No question about it. But still, GT gave up more points in 20 minutes tonight then Syracuse scored on them in an entire game. In Syracuse!

    Georgetown is the 1st team ever to be eliminated in 4 straight NCAA Tournaments by a team seeded at least 5 spots lower.
    - In 2008, they were the second victim of heavyweight serial killer Stephen Curry, losing to No. 10 seed Davidson in the second round as a No. 2 seed.

    - In 2010, No. 3 seed Georgetown lost 97-83 to the DJ Cooper-led Ohio Bobcats in the first round in a game that they simply never seemed to have a chance.

    - The same thing happened in 2011, when No. 11 seed VCU, fresh off of a win in the play-in game, drubbed the Hoyas 74-56 in the opening round of the tournament.

    - Last year, No. 11 seed NC State picked off No. 3 seed Georgetown 66-63.
    To be fair, the Hoyas lost to some really good teams then.

    As for this year, I'll argue that this year's Georgetown team actually overachieved during the regular season. Though they played well after losing Greg Whittington for the season, Whittington's presence took the pressure off of Otto Porter and Hopkins, among others.

    Also, as previous stated , Florida Gulf Coast previously defeated the Miami Hurricanes, albeit in mid-November.

    All of this stated, there is a lot of merit in what Mutaman stated about J.T III.
    He seems slow, at least he did tonight, in making adjustments, such as finally, when the Hoyas were far behind, deciding to try to run with FGC - which the T.V analysts (and every person in every living room or Sports Bar) were clamoring for Georgetown to do.

    FGCU also lost to Stetson and Lipscomb a month ago. Those two schools finished a combined 25-34 with neither school having a winning record. Heck, they lost to Lipscomb TWICE this year. They lost to 10-19 Maine. They lost to 9-22 East Tennessee State. Ouch.

    You have to wonder if he'd be gone by now if not for the 2007 final four - the one in which a star-studded, heavily favored Tar Heel team choked in the Elite 8 against a Hoya team with Roy Hibbert..and not much else.

    The current coach at Georgetown is actually John Thompson III.

    Also, go Hilltoppers!

    Jeff Green was on that team.

    True.

    But the Tar Heels were, as always, loaded.

    Upsets happen, as they often do in a one-and-done tournament.

    That's one of many reasons why the NCAA tournament is, IMO, the best sporting event of the year, rivaled only by MLB opening day, or at least the way MLB used to open the season. But that's a topic for another thread.

    No he doesn't suck. He recruits decent players, as far as I know runs a clean program, and every year during the regular seasons puts a very tough team on the floor. But he clearly has a problem getting his team ready for the NCAA. And you can say the same thing about Mike Brey and Jamie Dixon.
