Georgetown KO's Syracuse

The No. 1 seed in the Big East Tournament is gone.
Eighth-seeded Georetown took out the top-seeded Orange, 91-84, in the first game of the quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden.
Even worse for Syracuse, senior forward/center Arinze Onuaku had to be helped from the floor late in the game with a right knee injury. The extent of the injury is not known at this point. The loss also may have cost Syracuse a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Chris Wright paced Georgetown with 27 points and six assists. Austin Freeman had 18 points and three assists. Jason Clark added 17 points and four assists, while center Greg Monroe finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.
The Hoyas (21-9) had 22 assists on 33 baskets.
The winner gets the survivor of the Villanova-Marquette game.
That could be a tough matchup for the Wildcats. Georgetown whipped Villanova, 103-90, at the Verizon Center Feb. 6.
