The Georgetown Hoyas play in the second round of the Big East tournament at Madison Square Garden Wednesday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Panthers. Tip off is scheduled for 2 p.m. broadcasting live on ESPN pending the finish of the Connecticut vs. West Virginia game. In the only meeting against Pitt this season on Jan. 28, the Hoyas lost 72-60, one of the few bright spots for Pitt this season.
The Hoyas enter this game after dropping the season finale game against Marquette to lose the opportunity of a double bye in the tournament. The Hoyas look to shake off that disappointment and make a deep run in the Big East tournament to help their potential seeding in the NCAA tournament. The winner of this game will face fourth-seeded Cincinnati in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
