As we continue to try to embrace the idea of cooperation and collaboration we thought it would be nice if Syracuse Orange fans could take a moment and revisit some of the Georgetown Hoyas’ finest NCAA moments of the last 10-15 years.
March 21, 2015- Utah Utes 75, Hoyas 64
The last time Georgetown made the NCAA Tournament, the Hoyas turned a halftime tie into a double-digit defeat allowing the Utes to shot 58% from the field...but at least Utah was a single-digit seed.
March 22, 2013- Florida Gulf Coast Eagles 78, Hoyas 68
Would any of us really know about this Atlantic Sun school in Ft. Myers if the Hoyas didn’t let them put up fifty-four second-half points on dunk after dunk after dunk. Andy Enfield owes his P5 head coaching job (USC) to Georgetown.
March 18, 2012- N.C. State Wolfpack 66, Hoyas 63
The benevolent Hoyas decided to help a poor-shooting N.C. State team out by committing 23 fouls as they refused to let the Wolfpack give them a victory.
March 18, 2011- VCU Rams 74 Hoyas 56
Shaka Smart owes his P5 head coaching job (at Texas) to Georgetown.
March 18, 2010- Ohio Bobcats 97 Hoyas 83
John Groce owes his former P5 head coaching tenure (Illinois) to Georgetown
March 23, 2008- Davidson Wildcats 74 Hoyas 70
The game that started Georgetown’s run of getting eliminated by double-digit seeds just showing that the Hoyas care about the mid-majors more than any other school in the country (except maybe the Virginia Cavaliers). Nothing says building off a Final Four appearance by blowing a double-digit halftime lead as a two-seed the following season.
We thank Georgetown for thinking of the rest of the country and providing us with these beautiful memories to look back upon.
