News: Hoyas Win! Move on to Sweet 16

Georgetown was able to beat a very game Boston College team 62-55 to move onto the Sweet 16 for the 2nd consecutive year. No time for analysis, etc., but here are some highlights (higher quality version here) from the last 8 minutes of the game. Check the front basketball page of for a recap and article links.

Endgame highlights (higher res. version here)

This Friday in the Meadowlands, the Hoyas will face Vanderbilt, who upset Washington St. in a double-overtime thriller.

Vanderbilt and Georgetown have already played this year, way back in November. The Hoyas were able to win that game convincingly, but that performance won't necessarily translate into a repeat on Friday:
  • The game was a statistical anomaly for G'town this season, as previously noted (scroll down). It was Vanderbilt's first game of the season, and Georgetown's second.
  • Perhaps the biggest key in that game was Marc Egerson's defense against Shan Foster, holding him without a field goal.

More post-game analysis tomorrow; a look ahead at Vanderbilt later this week.
