I'm driving from NYC to Hartford in about an hour to get ready for Georgetown's game at Connecticut...but I wanted to get a sense of how far away the Hoyas are from being a No. 1 seed right now. In my view, Texas and Ohio State are the two best teams in the country. So let's compare Georgetown's profile to that of Kansas.
Vs. top 50: 8-5
Vs. top 100: 13-5
Best win: St. John's (15)
Worst loss: at Temple (34)
Road-neutral court: 10-3
As of today: 2/3 seed
Vs. top 50: 6-2
Vs. top 100: 13-2
Best win: vs. Arizona (17)
Worst loss: at Kansas State (32)
Road-neutral court: 10-1
As of today: 1 seed
It's fairly close. But the bottom line is that the Hoyas have a few more losses than the Jayhawks. So even though they are playing as well as anyone in the country right now, edge goes to Kansas. For now.
