The ship is sinking boys...

Today's Bubble Watch on ESPN.com is not kind to the Hoyas:

Georgetown [16-10 (8-7), RPI: 72, SOS: 55] Was blasted at UConn for fourth straight loss and now is in real trouble. Profile weakening rapidly. Must beat Providence at home in finale to have any chance.

That being said, they haven't officially said we're out of the money. Plus, the more I think about it the more I like the idea of a solid NIT run. It might be better for our young team in the long term.

It's too bad we caved during the second half of the season. The SJU loss is the real killer--I can handle losing to UConn and Villanova, but the St. John's loss stripped us of all momentum. Not sure a win against Providence will get us in. I think we need to win versus Providence and snatch at least a game (or maybe two) in the BE tournament.

Yes, "a solid NIT run." Nothing better than three weeks of basketball to determine the 65th best team in the nation.

Whoops, I meant "66th" - I forgot about the NCAA play-in game.
