Georgetown is officially one of the best stories of the college basketball season after the No. 8 seed Hoyas completed a four-day run through the Big East Tournament by smashing No. 2 seed Creighton 73-48 in Saturday's tournament title game. The victory puts Georgetown into the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015 and changes the direction of the program under fourth-year coach Patrick Ewing.
Just over a month ago, the Hoyas were 5-10 overall. But they have won eight of their last 10 games and suddenly look like a force to be reckoned with in the NCAA Tournament. Without a win over the BlueJays on Saturday, Georgetown would have had no shot at qualifying for the Big Dance, and the Hoyas played like a team with their season on the line.
Georgetown led 54-23 at one point in the second half as it outscored Creighton 19-2 in points off turnovers and won the paint battle 26-10. Figuring out where to seed the Hoyas will be a challenge for the selection committee. But one thing is clear: if the Hoyas play like they did in the Big East Tournament, they will be tough to beat in the NCAA Tournament.
