Georgetown has the hardest schedule in the land and has maintained an RPI around 40 for most of the season. The team has beaten Maryland, American, Memphis, UConn, Providence, Syracuse, and Villanova. Throughout the entire season the Hoyas have fought hard and have rarely surrendered a single lose to a lesser opponent (only one loss occurred to a team with an RPI below 100). The Hoyas also have incredible talent (Summers and Monroe), resiliency, solid defense, leadership and depth (G-town plays nine).
