04:46 AM ET 03.20 | There's no question that Georgetown was thoroughly beaten by Ohio in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. There are no injuries to blame and no lack of talent with respect to the Bobcats. Instead, the defeat raises questions of whether coach John Thompson III's system is holding his team back from reaching its full potential. The Hoyas have not exactly excelled in recent years, despite their talent. The loss to Ohio was preceded by a first-round NIT loss to Baylor last year and a second-round loss to Davidson in the 2008 NCAA Tournament.
