Big East Tourney Preview: Georgetown vs. St. John’s

Georgetown head coach Patrick Ewing looked like he might be Big East Coach of the Year halfway through the season. The Hoyas (literally) lost half their team to dismissals and injuries, but still managed to pick up wins over Creighton, Butler and St. John’s. Georgetown couldn’t keep the train rolling and have lost their last six contests heading into the Big East Tournament. The WagerTalk TV crew offers their Georgetown vs. St. John’s preview and prediction.
