Georgetown was blown out by Kansas last game, but that is okay. The Jayhawks are easily one of the most talented teams in the country and that has been evident throughout the season so far.
The Hoyas’ other two losses came against Oregon and Nebraska. The lost to the Cornhuskers is not a good loss to say the least and it could end up really hurting Georgetown when it comes to making the NCAA tournament. The loss to the Ducks was the exact opposite, as they are still undefeated.
The Big East is going to be very competitive this season and there are a number of teams that are going to battle it out of the title. I doubt the Hoyas are the favorites to win the title–right now at least–but they are still probably predicted by many to finish in the top five.
Georgetown may have lost Otto Porter Jr. over the offseason, but the team has moved on since. It still has plenty of talent. One of those talents is Markel Starks, who is currently averaging 16 points per game and 4.5 assists per game.
The Hoyas have been tested quite a bit already and they even have a couple of solid wins on the resume. This team beat VCU and Kansas State. They have already played three ranked opponents on the year, which should help out quite a bit once conference play actually start.
Georgetown may not be as good as it was last season, but it will still compete in the Big East.
