Hoya Failure; FGCU Wins As 15

This year was supposed to be different. Georgetown arguably boasts the best player in college basketball in Otto Porter. They won the Big East regular season and received a two-seed. They weren't going to lose make an early exit this year. Florida Gulf Coast isn't Ohio or Davidson (w/Steph Curry) or VCU. That's what they thought. That's what we all thought.

It wasn't so. Georgetown once again crash and burn in March. The Eagles actually looked just as athletic as Georgetown, which tends to be the biggest problem for these low seeds against 1's and 2's. They were getting in passing lanes and the Hoyas responded to this by fouling everyone. Going to the foul line where the Eagles truly beat the Hoyas, as all the other stats were quite similar. Sherwood Brown scored 24 and Bernard Thompson added 23, leading the way for FGCU. Here was the punctuation:

I'm still can't believe John Thompson III has actually taken the Hoyas to a Final Four once.
