The Providence Friars and the Georgetown University Hoyas will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Verizon Center.

ABOUT PROVIDENCE (12-7, 2-4 Big East): The Friars are coming off a 65-61 home win Saturday over Seton Hall as forward Rodney Bullock and guard Kyron Cartwright combined for 42 points. Bullock (17.5 points per game), Emmitt Holt (13.2), Jalen Lindsey (10.0) and Cartwright (9.8) are the leading scorers with Bullock (6.3 boards) and Holt (6.0) the top rebounders and Cartwright ranking second in the conference with his average of 6.9 assists. The Friars rank second in the Big East in scoring defense (64.2 points allowed per contest) but are the league’s lowest-scoring team (68.9 points) and are second-to-last in average rebound margin (minus-0.9).

ABOUT GEORGETOWN (10-8, 1-4): Guards LJ Peak and Rodney Pryor combined for nearly half (35) of the Hoyas’ 72 points against UConn and are the team’s only players averaging double figures with Pryor at 18.0 points and Peak contributing 16.2. With 5.1 per contest, Pryor is also one of three Georgetown players averaging more than five rebounds, joining 6-10 center Jessie Govan (5.3, 9.6 points) and 7-foot center Bradley Hayes (5.1 rebounds, 5.0 points). The Hoyas are allowing 71.2 points per game but lead the conference in field-goal percentage defense with opponents shooting 40.8 percent.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Hoyas listed as 6.5-point favorites versus the Friars, while the game’s total is sitting at 139 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Georgetown has built some momentum with back-to-back wins following its 0-4 start in Big East Conference play, and will try to keep it going Monday night in a home game against Providence. The game will wrap up a four-game homestand for the Hoyas and also conclude the season series, with the Friars having won the first meeting 76-70 on Jan. 4.

Since losing at Providence and to visiting Butler (85-76) in the ensuing game, Georgetown has beaten St. John’s (83-55) and Connecticut (72-69) to climb back above .500. Saturday’s win over the Huskies was a non-conference victory with UConn having jumped to the American Athletic in 2013, but it was a needed win all the same with the Hoyas rallying from a 14-point second-half deficit. “In a perfect world, we’re not playing a non-conference game,” Georgetown coach John Thompson III said in his post-game news conference. “That being said, looking down at the other end and seeing Connecticut is a good thing. … If you’re going to have a tough non-conference game, that’s what we want.” Providence is looking for a similar bounce-back boost having lost five of its last seven games after starting the season 10-2.

In their last action, Georgetown University was a 72-69 winner at home against Huskies. They failed to cover the -7.5-point spread as favorites.

Providence won its last outing, a 65-61 result against Pirates on January 14. They covered in that game as a +2-point underdog.
