Here's Seth Davis's article about the biggest questions for 20 elite teams.

Mr. Davis's comments on G-town:

Georgetown: Will the littles be as good as the bigs?

We know 7-2 junior Roy Hibbert, 6-9 junior Jeff Green and 6-9 freshman Vernon (Big Ticket) Macklin will give the Hoyas the best frontcourt in the Big East. The backcourt, however, is much less of a sure thing. Jonathan Wallace, a 6-1 junior, did a very good job as the de facto point guard last year (2.26 assist-to-turnover ratio), but he had the luxury of playing alongside Ashanti Cook. With Cook gone, Wallace will probably move to the two spot, where he'll have to show more aggressiveness than he has in the past. The point duties, meanwhile, will probably be handled by Jessie Sapp, a 6-3 sophomore who averaged 16 minutes per game last year. The Hoyas have Final Four potential, but as of now, their guards are a question, not an answer.

Sapp, Tyler, and Marc are going to have to step up. They need to fill the roles of the departing seniors. JTIII has mentioned all three over the last few weeks as those from whom he is expecting big things.
