The Villanova Wildcats will travel to the Capitol and take on the Georgetown Hoyas this weekend for a Big East battle.
HISTORY: This all-time series dates back to the 1970’s and it’s all knotted-up at 44. Villanova has won four of the last five meetings, but Georgetown pulled off a dramatic victory in the Big East Championship over them last season.
Georgetown will be favored to win on the road here.
Villanova was riding a six game winning streak before they were dished a home upset from Marquette last time out. The Wildcats trailed at halftime and couldn’t pull back in front, losing 57-54.
The Wildcats possess two of the most experienced players in the country in Collin Gillespie and Jermaine Samuels. Both were rotational pieces during Nova’s title runs, but this will mark their first meeting against Syracuse.
Gillespie leads the team with 16.7 ppg and 3.3 apg, while Samuels scores 10.2 ppg and grabs a team-leading 6.5 rpg.
Justin Moore continues to improve in his third year starting. The 6’4 guard reminds fans of former Nova guard Josh Hart, displaying the ability to shoot, rebound, distribute and defend at a high rate.
Moore averages a well-rounded line of 15.5 ppg, 5.2 rpg, and 2.4 apg.
Caleb Swider’s transfer has led to a bigger role for Brandon Slater. The 6’7 senior is averaging a career-best 9.4 ppg, up six points from last season.
The defending Big East Tournament champions are in trouble early after taking three straight losses to open conference play. The Hoyas lost on the road to St. John’s in their last time out after a big game from conference-leading scorer Julian Champagnie.
Freshman guard Aminu Mohammed posted his fifth double-double of the season last time out. He scored 20 points against a tough San Diego State team, 23 in the win over Syracuse, and 21 in their last time out against TCU. He’s leads the team in scoring (13.8) and rebounding (8.6).
Citadel transfer Kaiden Rice has been one of the best marksmen in college basketball for three seasons, and he hit a career-high 10 three pointers against UMBC, scoring 34 points along the way. Rice is second on the team with 13.5 ppg.
Dante Harris has looked well running the offense this year after playing 30 minutes per game as a freshman. The 6’0 guard is averaging a well-rounded 13.1 ppg, 3.6 rpg, and a team-leading 4.9 apg.
Hometown guard Donald Carey brings even more experience to the lineup, and he’s posting an identical line of 12.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg, and 3.5 apg.
CBB Betting Trends:
- NOVA is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games.
- GT is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.
- Under is 5-2 in last 7 NOVA/GT matchups.
