This Big East matchup features the Georgetown Hoyas and the Seton Hall Pirates.
The last time these teams met, Georgetown ended up winning a close game by a score of 83-80.
The Hoyas lost their last game to Butler, but with how jumbled the Big East is they still sit tied for third place. A win in this game would not only move them to .500 in the Big East, but it would also put them in prime position to earn the third seed in the conference.
The Hoyas have one of the higher scoring offenses this year as they average 81.5 points per game. One of their other biggest strengths is rebounding the ball. They 15th in the country in this category an average 40.5 boards per game.
Defensively is where the Hoyas start to run into major problems. They allow 77.4 points per game, which is ranked at 308th in the country. They played better in their last game against Butler as they only allowed 73 points. Look for the Hoyas to slow down Myles Powell and keep the Pirates under 77 points.
Seton Hall Pirates
The Pirates won their last game to put themselves back in the conversation for a third seed. They are tied now with Georgetown and a few other teams with a 5-6 conference record. A win in this game is crucial because it will improve their resume for the NCAA tournament hopes.
The Pirates offense is nowhere near as explosive as the one Georgetown has. They only are averaging 73.1 points per game. With that being said their offense usually runs through Myles Powell. Powell is averaging 21.7 points per game, so he will certainly need to have another dominating performance if the Pirates are going to hang with the Hoyas. We have seen recently when Powell struggles that the rest of the team cannot make up for it, so Powell is definitely the key to a Pirates victory.
The Pirates definitely have a defense that is built to slow down high scoring teams. They are only allowing 71.1 points which is a positive going into a game where their opponent averages in the 80’s. For the the Pirates to win they will need to contain Jessie Govan in the post and Matt McClung on the perimeter. If they keep these two players to a reasonable outing, they will be able to win.
