Team of the Week: Georgetown

March 2nd, 2008
Georgetown

In one of the most exciting and well played games of the weekend, Georgetown (24-4, 14-3) stole a win from Marquette, 70-68 in overtime. The win allowed the Hoyas to keep pace with Louisville for first place in the Big East. Fifth year senior Patrick Ewing Jr. seems to be the heart and soul of this team. Not blessed with the size of his father, his blue collar work ethic helped spark this come-from-behind victory. Meanwhile, Roy Hibbert and Jonathan Wallace filled the stat sheet with twenty points apiece.
