Quarterfinal action in the Big East men’s basketball tournament is underway in the Big Apple, and the Hoyas just picked up their second win of the tournament with an upset against the top-seed in Big East and national #3, Syracuse Orange. Some nice revenge for two defeats earlier this year, one up in the Carrier Dome and one back in late February over at Verizon.

The 91-84 win by Georgetown may deprive Syracuse of a one seed in the big dance when the brackets come out on Sunday and keeps the Hoyas alive in the hunt for a Big East crown. Syracuse must wait out the week in New York City, but Georgetown will lace back up and hit the court at 7 p.m. on Friday against the winner of Marquette and #10 Villanova, happening right now.
