Georgetown Hoyas’ season ended with a big loss to Villanova in the Big East Tournament on Friday night. The Hoyas were already facing a rough year, but the blowout loss added to their disappointment. Patrick Ewing’s team struggled to keep up with Villanova’s barrage, and were eventually buried with an 80-48 loss.
Villanova’s domination was evident from the very start of the game, and Georgetown was unable to match up to their energy. The Hoyas’ attempts to close the lead were futile, as Villanova kept up their barrage throughout the game.
“I’m disappointed for my guys,” said Ewing at the postgame press conference. “It’s been a tough year, and to end it like this is not what we wanted. But credit to Villanova, they played a great game.”
The loss was a bitter end to the Hoyas’ season, which was marred by injuries and inconsistencies. Despite their struggles, Ewing remained optimistic about the future. “We’ll regroup, and hopefully come back stronger next year,” he said. “We’ll use this as motivation to work harder and improve.”
Villanova will move on to the next round of the tournament, while Georgetown will have to wait for next season to make a comeback.
