Georgetown, NC state student papers cover NCAA upsets

Andrew Beaujon writes for Poynter, “The Georgetown Hoya’s story about the grim exit its men’s basketball team made from the NCAA tournament on Sunday makes the last 1:11 sound like the the entire Battle of Lepanto, with the Hoyas battling back from a seven-point deficit only to lose to NC State when Jason Clark missed a three-point shot at the buzzer…

In The Georgetown Voice, the university’s alt-weekly, Tim Shine drives home the thoroughness with which the Hoyas lost: Tipping his hat to junior Hollis Thompson’s scoring, Shine ruefully notes that “the Wolfpack always had an answer—Georgetown never led in the second half.”

Anyone visiting the website for The Technician, NC State’s student paper, today might have been surprised to learn that their 11th-seeded team had knocked off a big name like third-seeded Georgetown. There’s a story about the Wolfpack’s Friday win against San Diego State, and then the trail goes cold.”
