No. 3 Villanova sits atop the Big East standings and has been one of the most dominant college basketball teams this season. It was surprisingly upset by St. John’s on Wednesday and will attempt to bounce back in a Saturday matchup against Georgetown. The game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET
The Wildcats (11-2, 6-1) lost their first game since November earlier this week. Its latest loss ended a nine-game winning streak. James Earl-Robinson has held Villanova steady by leading the team in points, rebounds, and blocks per game. He amassed a season-high 17 boards to go along with 14 points in his last outing but had a subpar game against the Hoyas earlier this season in a 13-point victory.
Georgetown (5-8, 3-5) ranks 10th out of 11 teams in the Big East but has won two straight and upset No. 15 Creighton 86-79 on Wednesday. Jahvon Blair is the Hoyas’ top scorer and assist man. Like Earl-Robinson, he had a poor outing the last time these two teams met. An efficient shooting night from Blair could help Georgetown secure a third straight win.
