In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Georgetown at Xavier.
The Georgetown Hoyas dropped to 11-4 after their winning streak was snapped last time out when they faced St. John and lost, 97-94. Georgetown was in great position to win the game with 14 seconds left in the 2nd half and with 4 points ahead, however, they allowed their opponents to tie the game and eventually win it. Leading the way for the Hoyas was Jessie Govan who had a double-double with 25 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and a block. On the season, Georgetown is averaging 83.3 ppg on 45.7% shooting from the field.
Xavier lost its 2nd straight game last time out and dropped to 9-7 after being defeated by Marquette, 70-52. Leading the way for the Musketeers was Naji Marshall who had 21 points, 7 rebounds, 3 steals, and a block. On the season, Xavier is averaging 73.6 ppg on 47.4% shooting from the field.
Even though Xavier is playing well at home and it is currently 7-2 there, the Musketeers are also 0-6 against top 80 opponents. Georgetown can certainly bounce back in style and I expect this to happen in that game.
