An early start time! For the first time in what feels like forever, Villanova will play the 6:30 tip on FS1 when they take on arch-rivals Georgetown on Wednesday night in Washington D.C.
If Villanova has designs on a 5th straight conference title, this is a game they need to have. The Hoyas play hard and have a couple of very talented players in Jessie Govan and Marcus Derrickson in the frontcourt, but the ‘Cats hold a big advantage in the backcourt.
The Patrick Ewing era has been going pretty well, but Georgetown still looks to be a year or two away from seriously contending in the top half of the conference again. Rivalry game though, so throw out those record books!
Time: 6:30pm ET
Live Stream: Fox Sports GO
Odds: Villanova -12.5

Drink That Guarantees The W: St. Augustine Double Cask Bourbon
Just about one night’s worth of this bottle from last season. No better way to polish it off then with a whooping of the Hoyas.
Editor’s Note: Not drinking, but we’ll do this for the return game.
