Ahhh, Georgetown. We meet again. Villanova sits at 4-1 and atop the Big East standings for the moment, but the Hoyas are chomping at their heels and would overtake first place with a win on Monday night. Villanova is coming off a sloppy Saturday night performance against Penn, and will need to raise their intensity level in what is surely a game the Georgetown faithful have had circled on their calendar.
Georgetown is in the midst of a bounceback season, having recorded some good wins (Florida, Indiana, Butler) while narrowly missing out on some even bigger ones (Wisconsin, Kansas). With a Joshua Smith back in the lineup, D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera owning the backcourt, and an impressive freshmen class, the Hoyas won't be intimidated by Villanova's stature.
