Georgetown Suddenly Looks Scary Good

Georgetown ended the season on a 5 game winning streak, but hardly seemed impressive. Despite the wins at Marquette and over Louisville to win the Big East Regular Season Championship, they hardly seemed like the top team in the Big East. They were just eking out wins.

Now they are playing in the Big East Tournament and just blowing out opponents. Villanova and West Virginia, two teams that lost by a total of 3 points and with controversial (no-)calls at the end of both games. Georgetown dismantled both of them by a combined 36 points. The Mountaineers were dispatched tonight 72-55.

Against Villanova it was bombing them into oblivion from the 3-point line. Tonight with the Mountaineers, it was going inside, attacking the basket, and letting Roy Hibbert wreak havoc inside. The defense in both games was outstanding.

I don't think they just turned it on in the Big East Tournament, but they have seemed to regrouped and rediscovered something. Their attitude and mannerisms are much more aggressive and attacking.
