Chris Wright Injury To Sideline Hoyas Guard For Big East Tournament, But Not NCAA Tournament

The Georgetown Hoyas continue to take the same stance they've always taken with Chris Wright's injury. Coach John Thompson III said the Hoyas will not have their star senior guard for the Big East Tournament, but are still planning on having him back when the NCAA Tournament begins on either March 17 or March 18.

Via Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post:

JTIII all but ruled out Wright for the BE tournament. Said the expectation is that the #Hoyas will get their PG back for NCAAs.    

Wright underwent hand surgery on February 24, one day after the injury took him out against Cincinnati. The Hoyas have faltered badly with him out of the lineup, losing all three games with him sidelined. The Hoyas are a lock for the NCAA Tournament, but their seed is likely highly dependent on how healthy Wright will be once the NCAA Tournament begins.

The Hoyas are the No. 8 seed in the Big East Tournament and will play No. 9 seed Connecticut on Wednesday at noon. The Huskies advanced with a 97-71 win over Seton Hall on Tuesday.
