NEWARK, N.J. – The Georgetown Hoyas boarded a team bus home immediately following the 82-67 loss to Seton Hall. It was probably for good reason as the game Thursday at the Prudential Center marked two straight New York area losses for Georgetown. They were thoroughly handled by St. John’s a few nights earlier at Madison Square Garden.

The numbers of note on the evening:

Georgetown is missing an intangible

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Don’t let the nice record fool you. The good wins, don’t let them fool you, either. This is not last year’s Georgetown team. While that’s obvious since it’s a new season with new personnel, this team hasn’t taken that personality with it. That was one thing evident in the Hoyas’ 70-52 loss at Providence on Wednesday night, and it could be a big thing down the road.

Make no mistake: Georgetown has some things going for it. Depth is one thing this team has, and it gave the Hoyas a decided edge on Wednesday night. They had already played nine players just over halfway through the first half, and they were well on their way to rallying from being down ten early. Providence doesn’t have that depth with all the personnel issues they have had. But that wasn’t enough. Something was missing.

Everything about this game made perfect sense

NEW YORK – There was no way it could be any different. Everything came together just right for Georgetown and Syracuse to play each other one last time as Big East members. The only way this game could go was to be a thriller; there was no other option.

It was a close game almost throughout, as Syracuse had a 12-point lead for a short period, and then overtime was a possibility – and it came. It was the first overtime game in the Big East Tournament between these two in more than 27 years. A second overtime looked like a possibility, but it wasn’t meant to be as Syracuse closed out Georgetown 58-55.

2013 Big East Tournament quarterfinal quick hitters

NEW YORK – Georgetown vs. Syracuse. The rivalry lives on in the context of the Big East just a little longer.

The semifinals are set for the 2013 Big East Tournament, and the first one that set up had many people buzzing. Georgetown and Syracuse will have one last game while both are members of the Big East, which is only fitting considering this is the last Big East Tournament as we know it. That game will be a tough act to follow, but Louisville and Notre Dame will try to do that. Considering the Cardinals and Fighting Irish produced the most thrilling game of the season to date when they went to five overtimes, we know they are capable.

Some quick hitters from Thursday’s games:

Porter comes up big again for Georgetown

STORRS, Conn. – Otto Porter didn’t need to score 33 points on Wednesday night, although like on Saturday he did have a much better second half than first half.  Georgetown won the game after many twists and turns.  And while Porter didn’t need to be a hero by scoring as many points, he was still the one who made the play that counted the most when the game was on the line.

It wasn’t a memorable individual game, but no one who was at Gampel Pavilion on Wendesday night will forget Georgetown’s 79-78 win over Connecticut in double overtime where they scored the last eight points, five coming from Porter.
