Not A Good Day To Be Undefeated

But now, there's only one team that has to worry about that. After Pitt went down at the hands of St. John's, Duke lost a great game on the road against Georgetown, 87-84. There will be partying at Georgetown tonight like they haven't seen since Dikembe was running around screaming, "WHO WANTS TO SEX MUTOMBO?"

Greg Paulus gave up a chance to take a potential game-tying three at the buzzer when he dribbled the ball off his foot. It's too bad for Paulus that the game had to end like that, but Georgetown deserved the win.

Georgetown is unranked, but this is not a huge North Dakota State-esque upset. It is surprising, and it certainly would be classified as an upset, but Georgetown's not your average unranked team. They ball. John Thompson III, while he doesn't intimidate and frighten the hell out of me quite like his father does, has them playing smart team basketball, cutting to the basket and making crisp, accurate passes. This is a Top-15 or -20 caliber team.
