The fans at Verizon Center will be treated to a game between the Xavier Musketeers and the Georgetown University Hoyas when they take their seats on Saturday.

ABOUT XAVIER (11-2, 1-0 Big East): Bluiett came up one rebound shy of a double-double in the victory over Providence and leads the team at 19.2 points per contest – fourth best in the Big East. Fellow guards Edmond Sumner (14.3 points, 49.2 field-goal shooting) and J.P. Macura (14.2 points) form one of the top backcourt trios in the country, but the Musketeers have not been efficient from behind the arc (33.9 percent – ninth in Big East). Senior RaShid Gaston is the best threat inside for Xavier, averaging 7.9 points and a team-high 6.6 rebounds.

ABOUT GEORGETOWN (8-5, 0-1): Pryor is shooting 55.2 percent from the field overall, draining 41-of-81 from behind the 3-point arc, and the 6-5 guard has blocked 13 shots in 13 games. Junior guard L.J. Peak (15.9 points), who was bothered by a groin injury and went 1-for-8 from the field against Marquette, is the only other player scoring more than 11 per contest. Jessie Govan, a 6-10 sophomore center, averages 10.8 points and shoots 56.7 percent from the field while 6-7 sophomore forward Marcus Derrickson scored 26 combined in his last two outings.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Musketeers listed as 2½-point favorites versus the Hoyas, while the game’s total is sitting at 143.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

No. 17 Xavier produced one of its best performances of the season to open Big East play and hopes to ride the momentum of a four-game winning streak when it visits Georgetown on Saturday. Junior guard Trevon Bluiett poured in a game-high 22 points in an 82-56 rout of Providence at home on Wednesday as the Musketeers shot 60.4 percent from the field.

Xavier coach Chris Mack has been frustrated by his team’s tendency to “take its foot off the gas pedal,” but told reporters, “I thought for the first time, really all season long. … our team put together as complete of a game as we’ve played.” The Musketeers have won four of the last five games against Georgetown and must contain Rodney Pryor if they are going to make it five out of six. Pryor, a transfer from Robert Morris, leads the way for the Hoyas with 20.1 points per contest – second in the Big East – and scored 23 in the 76-66 loss to Marquette on Wednesday that ended a six-game win streak. “I’m still confident in this group,” Georgetown coach John Thompson III told the Washington Post. “It’s a tough loss, but then every game is going to be tough, so we’ve just got to regroup and bounce back.”

Georgetown University lost its last outing, a 76-66 result against Golden Eagles on December 28. They failed to cover in that game as a +5.5-point underdog.

In their last action, Xavier was a 82-56 winner at home against Friars. They covered the -9.5-point spread as favorites.
