Georgetown University Hoyas
Georgetown hopes to avoid a losing streak after being beaten by the Marquette Golden Eagles and the latest was against the Xavier Musketeers by 9 points. Mac McClung finished the game with 19 points but he was 6-of-19 from the field. He was the only Hoyas player to reach double-digit scoring. The team shot a total of 37% and a lazy offense is being punished hard by the Bulldogs.
