The Pack faces off against the Georgetown Hoyas in the round of 32, after dispatching the Aztecs of San Diego State. Georgetown advanced by handling the Bruins from Belmont, 74-59. Unlike SDSU, who often go with a three or four guard lineup, the Hoyas like to go with only one true guard, thus utilizing their size to disrupt opponents defensively.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — John Thompson III doesn't remember the last time N.C. State and Georgetown met in the NCAA tournament, but his dad does.

Georgetown, coached by John Thompson, beat N.C. State, 69-61 in the Round of 16 in the 1989 NCAA tournament. Former Wolfpack guard Chris Corchiani was called for a travel with 1:47 left in the game, which was the second game the Hoyas won in that tournament that included a controversial finish.

Georgetown, the No. 1 seed in the East, beat 16th-seeded Princeton in the first round when Alonzo Mourning blocked a shot by Princeton guard Bob Scrabis at the buzzer.
