Patrick Ewing faces his first real test as a head coach tomorrow afternoon against the Cuse.
Georgetown is 8-0 in Ewing’s debut season, but they’ve only played one game away from home and have yet to face a major conference opponent.
And they have 2 more cupcakes next week, so hosting SU represents the team’s lone opportunity to claim a meaningful scalp before conference play begins.
The Orange have also loaded up on their fair share of lightweights in the season’s opening month, but they’ve also already faced Maryland, Kansas, and UCONN, with the latter two matchups taking place away from the Carrier Dome.
The Orange are 0-2 against the Hoyas since leaving the Big East, but have a great opportunity to hand Ewing his first coaching loss, in front of his home fans in Washington D.C.
Tip-off on CBS is at 12:30.
