Georgetown drops quarterfinal Puerto Rico game to Northeastern
Hoyas, what's up with that? Another game in a bracket, another loss for Georgetown.
First, an omen. Take it away, Josh Smith.
Yeah ... not ... good.
What we're learning: If Georgetown is involved, and it's playing inside a bracket, things will not end well for these Hoyas. G'town was a casualty of Dunk City last March, and on Thursday afternoon John Thompson III's team fell to Northeastern in the quarterfinals of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
This means Georgetown will play Kansas State on Friday, a game most expected -- but not in the consolation bracket.
This is certainly the biggest non-conference win of Bill Coen's career with the Huskies. Northeastern is now 2-2; Georgetown 1-2. Reggie Spencer had a game-high 18 points for NU. For Georgetown, D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera was the only Hoya in double figures (14 points), while the team committed 16 turnovers, shot 36 percent from the field and sunk three 3-pointers.
I'm not gonna give a hotsportstake and try to tell you what this loss "means" for Georgetown right now. It's a team that lost a lottery pick in Otto Porter and is still finding its way. I think the future can be good and the Hoyas can get their footing. Bad loss in the now, but certainly not a harbinger of a sub-par season just yet.
