For the 13th time this season the Hoyas hit the canvas, losing to St. John’s 59-56 in overtime Tuesday night, and there’s no doubt that Georgetown is now knocked out of any at-large discussion for the NCAA Tournament.
If you happen to know a Georgetown Hoyas fan, forgive them if they seem on edge this weekend, it’s just because it feels like the next two seasons of Georgetown basketball may hang in the balance.
Remember a few weeks back when I said that Georgetown looked like a fine-tuned machine? Remember when I even went so far as to liken them to Voltron? Yeah, well, right now, the Hoyas are more like Johnny 5 from “Short Circuit.”
Yeah, it’s just one win. Sure, this guarantees nothing in terms of postseason success.
More than anything else, the 2008-09 Georgetown Hoyas seem to be associated with absence.

I know a lot about college basketball. My girlfriend knows a lot about shoes.
