The Georgetown Hoyas Women’s Basketball Team was ranked 17th in the NCAA Division 1 standings posted February 28th.
The Hoyas entered the Big East Championship quarterfinals with an overall record of 22-10 and a conference record of 9-7. They entered the tournament as the eighth seed and fell in the quarterfinals to the University of Connecticut.
The Hoyas Season
The Hoyas have had a rocky season with wins and losses but eventually toughed it out in the quarterfinals. Although they didn’t beat Connecticut, there is still a chance of getting into the NCAA Tournament with an at-large bid.
Their season has seen both ups and downs, with most games being won or loss with a 10-point margin. On the rare occasion, the Hoyas were able to have a blow out and win by 20-points or more. In the game against Connecticut, the Hoyas played stellar defense but were unable to do the same on offense.
Both teams had a hard time converting on the offensive end but UConn’s early 17-5 run was enough to hold off the Hoyas the entire game. Georgetown couldn’t get any closer than 12 points the rest of the game. Terri Williams-Flournoy leads Georgetown as the head coach, however, she looks to sophomore Sugar Rodgers and senior Monica McNutt to get it done on the court.
