It was painful to watch this one slip away, but there might not be anyone in the country better in the last two minutes than Georgetown, so seeing them pull it out at home and on Senior Day wasn't exactly maddening. That said, I was approximately 101.3% positive that Jerry Smith's first made three-pointer of the day was going to tie it up. Mama said there'd be days like this I suppose.
So now it's on to Gotham and likely the winner of Wednesday's 7/10 game between (perhaps) Pitt and Seton Hall. The Panthers have been to the Big East title game in six of the last seven years, and eliminated Louisville from the tournament in each of the Cardinals' first two trips to MSG. Revenge would also be a theme if the Pirates - who knocked off the Cards by ten in Newark - were to advance.
Exciting times are just around the corner. Here's to a new nine-game winning streak.
Enjoy your Saturday.
