While Georgetown has one of the most head-scratching early season losses – 82-80 in double overtime at home to Radford – the Hoyas also took No. 3 Maryland to the brink on the road in College Park, ultimately losing 75-71. It’s hard to know exactly which Georgetown team Duke will get, but I would bet it’s closer to the one that played at Maryland.
