Vandy mauled overmatched George Washington by 33 points in its tourney opener, and while it survived a pulsating double-overtime thriller to oust Washington State in the second round, the Cougars were the weakest No. 3 seed in the tournament. Now comes a matchup with second-seeded Georgetown and its bruising front line, the likes of which the Commodores haven't seen north of Florida, a team Vandy split with during the regular season. It's a classic boxer-vs.-fighter matchup with the Commodores relying on the perimeter shooting to offset the Hoyas' inside dominance. Vandy has hoisted up 59 3-pointers - making 22 - in its first two games but Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Byars showed what a weapon it is for the team by making five in the second half and OT against Washington State. NEXT GAME: Friday vs. (2) Georgetown at East Rutherford, NJ
