Georgetown faces Seton Hall on Friday, March 12th at Madison Square Garden for an NCAA basketball Big East conference tournament matchup.
Georgetown upset the 14th ranked Villanova Wildcats on Thursday in the Big East quarterfinal to make it to the Big East semis for Friday. Georgetown was outstanding from the free-throw line in that win, shooting a perfect 23-23 from the line in the 72-71 win over Nova. Now, Georgetown is two wins away from a ticket into the NCAA Tournament, but the gauntlet has just begun for the Hoyas. Georgetown's leading scorer so far this season has been G Jahvon Blair, who has scored 16.1 points per game for the Hoyas. Georgetown as a team has scored 71.5 points per game and has shot the ball at a 42.3% clip from the field. Georgetown has also allowed 72.3 points per game to its opponents as well.
Seton Hall also had to play in a thriller of a quarterfinal game, as the Pirates took down St. John's in overtime by the final score of 77-69 on Thursday. Seton Hall led at halftime of that game, but St. John's was able to come back and take the game to OT. Seton Hall ended its regular season with a 10-point loss to St. John's, but the Pirates got their revenge in the game that mattered most. Seton Hall's leading scorer so far this season has been F Sandro Mamukelashvili, who has scored 17.8 points per game for the Pirates. Seton Hall as a team has scored 71.6 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.5% clip from the field. Seton Hall has also allowed 69.8 points per game to its opponents as well.
Seton Hall opens as a 3-point favorite and the total is set at 141.5. Despite the fantastic upset win over Villanova, I do not think Georgetown can compete with Sandro down low. I like Seton Hall to advance to the Big East Championship to play for a spot in the Big Dance.
