The Georgetown Hoyas are looking for a post in the Sweet 16, but they'll have to get past the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Tuesday.

The No. 5 Seed Georgetown Hoyas secured a five point win in their opening round game against Fresno State over the weekend, but now they will have to face Georgia Tech, a No. 4 seed, on Tuesday. The game starts at 7:10 pm and can be found on ESPN 2 or online at ESPN 3.

On paper, this is about as close of a matchup as you would expect from teams seeded this closely. They have both lost just eight games this year, and their Conference records were nearly identical. So as you would expect from a 4/5 matchup, this is probably going to be a pretty heated matchup with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line.
