NCAA tournament 2011: Where to seed Georgetown

By Eric Prisbell

I know I'm not the only one who is going to develop an ulcer trying to figure out Georgetown's seed before Sunday night.

Record: 21-9
RPI: 11
SOS: 1 (3 in non-conference)
Vs. top 50: 8-9
Vs. top 100: 10-9
Best wins: Utah State (17), at Syracuse (18), Louisville (20)
Worst losses: Cincinnati (32), at Cincinnati (32), at Temple (29)
True road record: 7-5
As of today: No. 5/6 seed
Comment: Seeding Georgetown figures to be one of the selection committee's most difficult tasks this coming weekend. When this team was at full strength, the Hoyas were a solid No. 3 seed in the NCAAs. But they have lost all three games since Chris Wright, who is really a coach on the floor for this team, broke his non-shooting hand. They are clearly not a No. 3 seed without him. How effective will he be when/if he returns? How far can the Hoyas slide? There is no easy answer to these questions. But they will be the ones posed when the committee assesses the strength of the Hoyas.
