The Hoyas entered the final round of the three-day, 54-hole tournament trailing Seton Hall by 13 strokes but thanks to their 306 in Saturday's final round - the fourth-best team round of the entire tournament - and finished within seven strokes of the eventual champion Pirates, who topped the six-team field at 64-over par 928.
Georgetown finished in second place at 71-over par 935. The team's 18-over par 306 was tied for the fourth-best round by the team this season. The Blue & Gray finished two shots ahead of St. John's, in third at 73-over par 937, while Xavier was fourth at 75-over par 939.
