CBB Summer Buzz: Georgetown
Without a veteran presence down low, expect a new look to the Hoyas' offense
Insider knows you're hot for hoops during the summer, so we're bringing you a closer look at a few of the big-profile schools before most freshmen have even moved into their dorms. We continue today with Georgetown.
(23-11 -- NCAA Tournament Round 1)
After a series of enigmatic performances defined 2009-10 -- the Hoyas cruised past both national finalists, Duke and Butler, but lost embarrassingly to Rutgers during the regular season and Ohio in the NCAA tournament's first round -- a pair of paradoxes will shape the coming campaign for Georgetown. First, despite a host of familiar faces, the Hoyas will look very, very different from their previous incarnation. The explanation lies in Paradox No. 2: Next season, Big Man U's big men on campus will all measure under 6-foot-4.
To read the summer preview of Georgetown, including news on the incoming freshmen and details of the Hoyas' new-look offense, you must be an ESPN Insider. Plus, you can see outlooks from Joe Lunardi and Jay Bilas.
