Georgetown is 12–4 but it doesn’t have many quality wins. It beat DePaul, and St. John’s at MSG, but has lost to every other team that is even close to Tournament quality.
The losses: Syracuse, Butler, at Marquette, and Creighton. The Creighton loss was the most recent, and the worst (24 points); the other three were by single-digits.
Patrick Ewing’s team is led by a senior center Jessie Govan. He’s 6’10” and averages 18 and 12 on on 53.5 percent from the field. He does most of his work inside, but can step back and hit the three 35 percent of the time.
Marcus Derrickson is more of a marksman, though he has size at 6’7″. He’s a junior and the only other double-digit scorer on the team, shooting it at 44 percent from outside and better than 53 percent overall.
Seton Hall Pirates
Seton Hall took a step back in the KenPom rankings after going to Marquette (#39) and getting beat by 20. The Pirates (now #32) had just cracked the top-20 and ascended to #13 in the AP Poll with a fifth win in a row at Butler last weekend. Alas, the matchup at Marquette wasn’t a good one for Seton Hall.
Marquette is good. Beating the Golden Eagles at home is a seriously high-quality win and it doesn’t just happen anyhow. I love Seton Hall’s offense, but defensively, the Pirates aren’t great. A great defensive team can go to Marquette, hold the Eagles down and give itself a chance to win. Seton Hall isn’t that team.
But at home against an opponent that isn’t as good as it (and most opponents aren’t), Seton Hall should emerge victorious. There’s nothing fluky about this team. It will be a top-5 seed in the NCAA Tournament and go as far as its offense can take it.
