The Georgetown Hoyas earned a 3 seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament and will face off against the 14 seed Belmont Bruins. The Hoyas haven't had much success in the NCAA Tournament as of late and SB Nation's Georgetown blog Casual Hoya expects plenty to be picking against the Hoyas.
There will be plenty of analysts on TV and the internet that will predict a Georgetown loss to Belmont, we've already seen Seth Davis and others do so. And frankly, it is an easy and lazy choice because of our recent tournament history. But let's step back for a second and applaud this year's team for a season that has outperformed all of our wildest expectations.
The Hoyas have made six of the last seven NCAA Tournaments, but have been bounced out much earlier than expected in some of them.
