John Thompson and Patrick Ewing have led Georgetown back to the Final Four. Of course, this is Patrick Ewing Jr. (I love that his jersey says “Ewing Jr.”) and John Thompson III, the sons of the great Georgetown player and coach. The new Ewing has only a bit role, but he did his bit, and UNC fell apart in the closing minutes. Georgetown will play the Ohio State University, and Florida will play UCLA in a rematch of last year’s final. Gators, Bruins, Hoyas, and Buckeyes—that’s a pretty weird bunch of mascots.
Looking back now, it seems obvious that Georgetown, Florida, UCLA, and Ohio State would make it. What was I thinking with Louisville and UNC? But only Tyson Smith, of all the contestants in The Modern Spectator NCAA pool, was smart enough to write that down two weeks ago. Congrats to Tyson who leads the way. He has OSU beating UCLA in the championship.
