This Big East matchup will feature the Xavier Musketeers and the Georgetown Hoyas.
These teams met just three weeks ago where the Musketeers won 81-75. Xavier has now won six consecutive games against Georgetown and will be looking for another season sweep.
The Musketeers enter this game on a three game losing streak and are now last in the conference. The Big East is becoming a jumbled mess from third place down, so the Musketeers will still have a golden opportunity to climb back up to third.
The Musketeers are scoring 73.7 points per game, but this number goes down to 60.8 in their road game. This is a major concern because they will be away from home in this game. Their leading scorer is Paul Scruggs, who is only averaging 13.3 points per game. If the Musketeers are going to win this game, another player will need to step up and provide some help to Scruggs.
Xavier is allowing 72 points per game. They are allowing opponents to shoot 43.7% from the field. Considering Georgetown scores a lot more when at home, the Musketeers must find a way to slow down their star players. They especially need to limit Matt McClung. He is known for his electrifying dunks and can get the crowd in the game in an instant. By shutting down McClung, Xavier can take the crowd out of the game and win a tough road test.
The Hoyas just snapped a two game losing streak when they beat St. John’s in their last game. They are now in third with a conference record of 3-4. If the Hoyas want any chance to catch the top two teams, they will need to win this game at home.
The Hoyas are one of the higher scoring teams in the country this year. They average 83.4 points per game, which is 21st in the nation. One of their main strengths is shooting the three ball. They are 37.6% from deep range, which is good for 47th in the country. In home games this year, the Hoyas average 87.1 points, which could be a major factor to a Georgetown win.
The Hoyas have one the worst defenses in terms of points allowed. They allow about 78.4 points per game, which is a reason for their struggles this year. In Big East play they allow 83.9 points per game. If the Hoyas want any chance to turn their season around they will need to hold the Musketeers well under the 80 point mark.
