A year ago, the Georgetown Hoyas pulled off a stunning run to win the Big East Tournament (as an 8-seed) and reach the NCAA Tournament. It was one of the best stories of the 2020-2021 college basketball season.

The 2021-22 season did *not* feature the same magic for Georgetown. It didn’t even feature a single win in Big East play.

After going 6-24 on the season and 0-19 in Big East play, Georgetown faced Seton Hall — a team that entered Wednesday on the right side of the NCAA Tournament bubble — in the Big East Tournament, and the Hoyas actually looked like they may come away with a shocking victory.

Georgetown led by four points with under five minutes remaining, but Seton Hall took the lead 55-53 on this Jamir Harris three-pointer with 40.3 seconds remaining:

The Hoyas still had a chance to tie or take the lead in the final seconds. But trailing 55-53, Georgetown had this dreadful, comical possession to turn the ball over with six seconds remaining:

Seton Hall held on to win 57-53 (a loss likely may have sent them to the wrong side of the bubble).

So, Georgetown finishes the season 6-25, and 0-20 in Big East play (if we include the conference tournament). This comes after head coach and NBA legend Patrick Ewing released a statement amid rumors about his coaching future on March 4 (after the Georgetown AD released a statement supporting Ewing).

Also somebody has also written *a lot* of words on Wikipedia about the Georgetown season. So that’s something.

Here’s a look at how the college basketball world reacted to Georgetown’s loss:
