The Georgetown Hoyas will open their first NIT appearance since 2009 against a familiar foe. Just not the one many locals hoped it would be.
Matchup: Georgetown (17-13, 8-10 Big East) vs. DePaul (11-20, 3-15)
When: Wednesday 9:30 p.m.
The Georgetown Hoyas have a singular purpose this week in New York.
"We're going to win," coach John Thompson III said, referring to the Big East Tournament, which tips on Wednesday.
Once again, the phrase "small margin of error" came up in connection with a Georgetown loss.
