Has any team played as many tough games in hostile environments this season as Georgetown? The Hoyas opened at Old Dominion (Nov. 12), then played Missouri in Kansas City (Nov. 27), at Temple (Dec. 9) and at Memphis (Dec. 23). Now they're set to open Big East play Wednesday night at Notre Dame, which means Georgetown is about to play its fifth pseudo-road game -- vs. Missouri in Kansas City is technically a neutral-site game -- against a Top 25-level team.

That would be ambitious for anybody.

It's especially ambitious for a Big East school that still has road games at Villanova (Jan. 29), Syracuse (Feb. 9), UConn (Feb. 16) and Cincinnati (March 5), but it's doable with a team led by experienced guards like Chris Wright, Austin Freeman and Jason Clark. For proof, consider that the Hoyas enter with an 11-1 record, and that their only loss came by three points at Temple, otherwise known as the favorite to win the Atlantic 10.

Also: Georgetown is a 3-point favorite at No. 15 Notre Dame.

That suggests the Hoyas are really good.

But if you've been watching, you knew that already.

So you gauge a team by one game?   Must be a Crapolina fan......

Yes, Georgetown looked great getting their asses handed to them by Notre Dame. Maybe Parrish had it right by not ranking them.

Perrish......this is QUITE a departure from what, in your limited wisdom prognosticated early this year.   Have you forgotten???   Hoya fans have not.   You didn't even rank them in the top 25.   But you ranked an overrated bunch of clowns (AKA the North Crapolina Tarholes) in the top 10 so what can we expect from your limited knowledge base.   Go ahead, admit it.   You were DEAD WRONG about the Hoyas.   You didn't do your homework.   You were callous.

And yes, Tarholes......I said clowns.   This team is a bunch of head cases who can't spell teamwork, who don't have a point guard, who can't shoot consistently, who are limited in big men.....shall I go on?   Toy proved last year he couldn't coach which is why K has his number.   K can coach up ANY team and work with the available talent to make them successful.   He's proved that countless times in the past decade when he hasn't had four 5 stars on his team like the folks at Crapel Hill.   Pretty easy to coach a bunch of 5 stars when they're motivated but when the rubber met the road last year and Toy needed to BE A REAL COACH, his head was spinning faster than Linda Blair in the Exorcist.  

BTW......5 teams in the top 10......who's your daddy ACC???
