Georgetown, No. 12 in the RPI, to the NIT?

Nah. It won't happen.

But it should.

You heard me. I'm saying Georgetown -- with 21 victories overall, 10 victories in the Big East, No. 1 strength-of-schedule nationally and No. 12 RPI -- should be left out of the NCAA tournament.

At the very least, selection committee members have to consider it. Don't they? Georgetown racked up all of those impressive numbers -- the wins, the RPI -- with Chris Wright as its point guard. But Chris Wright isn't the point guard any more. Georgetown says Wright could play in the NCAA tournament, which is a bunch of crap. The only way Wright plays in the NCAA tournament on that hand he broke Feb. 23 would be if the Hoyas reach the Sweet 16.

Which means Chris Wright isn't playing in the NCAA tournament.

Because the Hoyas aren't beating two good teams without him. Hell, they're not beating anybody without him.

With Wright, Georgetown was 21-6 and looking at a No. 2 or No. 3 seed.

Without Wright, Georgetown is 0-4. All four losses were to NCAA tournament teams, but the Hoyas weren't even competitive -- they lost those four games by an average of 14.5 points -- and guess who Georgetown will see in the NCAA tournament? More NCAA tournament teams.

What I'm getting at is this: Since Georgetown can't compete with NCAA tournament competition without Wright, why should the Hoyas get invited to the NCAA tournament?

You have to admit -- that's a great question.
