Both of these teams are looking for as many quality wins as they can get to build at large profiles. Neither is expected to win their league.
Georgetown has a beast in the middle while SMU has had a lot of recent success playing more of a positionless kind of game.
The Mustangs had rattled off four straight wins before getting stymied against TCU the last time out. No shame losing to a ranked team.
Senior guard Jahmal McMcurray leads the team in scoring. He is shooting it really well and even though he is just 6ft he is not the point guard. He is a gunner.
Jimmy Whitt is the glue guy on this team. Leading the team in assists and steals while being second in rebounding at just 6’3″. He scores but is not a strong shooter.
Positionless basketball can work but you still need some size. Ethan Chargois has some but it might not be enough in this matchup. They need their leading rebounder to play big.
Georgetown is one of the strongest college basketball brands and now that they have Patrick Ewing as coach they are always going to be in the spotlight somewhat. They are off to a solid start.
Jessie Govan is a throwback in the post but at the same time he can shoot – 50% on three so far and averaging more than one per game. Even more impressive some night he is playing almost the whole game – 39 minutes in one point loss at Syracuse.
The Hoyas would be deadlly if they had more accurate shooters surrounding him. If they can get that they will at least be a threat in the Big East.
Defense was intense back when Ewing was playing at G-Town but this year it has not been good enough. Look for it to steadily improve but not as quickly as program supporters would like.

Free SMU Mustangs vs. Georgetown Hoyas NCAAB Prediction:
There is probably not a huge gap between these teams overall…but Georgetown should be favoured at home.
The key will be whether Govan is enough of a dominating presence to overcome that SMU is better on the perimeter.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I think the Hoyas can get the win at home so the number will be critical. They are not going to win by much with the defense they play.
