10. Georgetown Hoyas
The Ed Cooley experience is beginning to work for the Georgetown Hoyas, they sit at 7-4 after an overtime win against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. They started off the year with tough losses to Holy Cross and Rutgers, but things have gotten much more stable for this team.
The Hoyas should also have another win under their belt and should have beaten TCU but a missed out-of-bounds call led to a loss. Georgetown has been flying under the radar, but they still have a little bit to prove based on that slow start to the year.
Jayden Epps has also turned out to be one of the better players in this conference, averaging 18.9 points per game for these Hoyas. He leads all Big East players in scoring and has been a huge part of Georgetown’s non-conference success. If they continue to get that strong guard play, then they will be able to compete with most teams on any given night.
They may be playing better right now than some of the teams above them on this list, and the teams from 10-7 are very close to each other in these rankings. In a few weeks' time, Georgetown may just find themselves higher due to the strong coaching of Cooley, but there is still that prove-it factor with this team.
Cooley was not supposed to fix this program overnight, but it seems like the rebuild is happening just a bit faster than we might have thought. Now it is time to see if that momentum continues in conference play.
