Wednesday's matchup between Big East contenders Georgetown and Providence isn't just the first of a string of tests for the 24th ranked Hoyas.
Georgetown fell a few spots, but the Hoyas men's basketball team remains ranked in the latest Associated Press poll.
Georgetown went from decisive home loss against Xavier on Tuesday to a key 67-40 rout at Creighton on Saturday.
The 3-pointer is something of an equalizer for teams lacking interior prowess yet capable of sinking the deep, but not-that-deep-shot.
To paraphrase former New York Yankees star Yogi Berra, Georgetown experienced déjà vu all over again and not the pleasant kind.
