Villanova vs. Georgetown is supposed to be a regular season finale with conference implications. At the very least it should be a game between two quality sides, like Duke-Carolina. It just hasn’t been lately.
Instead, we’ll just get one last Homecoming for Josh Hart and Kris Jenkins to torture Hoya fans. The vultures are already circling John Thompson III as the Hoyas prepare to host the Villanova Wildcats on Saturday at the Verizon Center. Fitting that two big misses could finally put the nail in the coffin.
Rumor floating around @GeorgetownHoyas campus today, JTIII could be out as soon as outcome of tomorrow's game @BobbyBancroft @CasualHoya— Solomon Tucker (@babesandballers) March 3, 2017
That’s not exactly surprising given Georgetown’s rather embarassing season, but there’s been plenty of Georgetown supporters disappointed in the school’s apparent commitment to JT3 beyond this season.
If they can’t beat Villanova, maybe this will give them some hope.
Game Time, TV Schedule: 12:00pm ET. The game will be televised on FOX.

BEVERAGE OF CHOICE
My house is hosting a baby shower for my wife directly following the game so I’ll be balancing setup and the game throughout. I found a bottle of Johnnie Red in the back of my closet, so that’ll be good to toss in a few mixed drinks.
