I didn't get to any sort of preview beyond the Q&A, so here is the quick version. You might have heard that Georgetown runs a Princeton hybrid, which is true, but not in the way most commonly associated with it: the Hoyas actually don't shoot very many threes. They have plenty of size, and they're very good in the paint. That's going to be a huge challenge for State, both from a matchup and a dear-god-not-too-many-fouls-please perspective. Georgetown has five guys 6-8 or taller who are going to be a part of their rotation.

They only have two decent guards, though, and that's where State is going to have to exploit this team to help create opportunities for the frontcourt guys.
