The Georgetown University Hoyas and the Xavier Musketeers will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Cintas Center.

ABOUT GEORGETOWN (10-9, 1-5 Big East): The 56-point effort against the Friars is the lowest for the Hoyas since Jan. 16, 2016 (55-50 loss to Villanova), and their 32.7 percent mark from the floor is the team’s worst since a loss to Maryland on Nov. 15 (32.0). Rodney Pryor, who entered Saturday ranked fifth in the Big East in scoring (17.7), had 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting and is averaging 9.8 over his last four contests. Georgetown is beginning a stretch in which it plays three of four and seven of 11 on the road.

ABOUT XAVIER (13-5, 3-3): The Musketeers will be playing their first game since senior guard Myles Davis announced he was leaving the program, just three games and 12 days after he returned from a suspension. Davis, who averaged 10.8 points and a team-high 4.1 assists last season, was working his way back slowly and had played only 34 total minutes, but he contributed to the team’s lackluster offensive attack by going 0-for-8 from the floor and failing to record a single assist in the three games. Xavier will need more from its high-scoring trio of Trevon Bluiett, J.P. Macura and Edmond Sumner, who combined for 35 points – 11.4 below their average – on 40.7 percent shooting versus Creighton.

Oddsmakers currently have the Musketeers listed as 9½-point favorites versus the Hoyas, while the game’s total is sitting at 148.5.

Last time out for Xavier, they were a 72-67 loser as they battled Bluejays at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -3-point favorite.

Georgetown University was a 74-56 loser in their most recent outing at home against Friars. They failed to cover the -6.5-point spread as favorites.

Xavier was unable to find success in a three-game Big East gauntlet, but hopes to get back into the win column when it hosts Georgetown on Sunday. The 19th-ranked Musketeers opened conference play with three straight wins while averaging 86.7 points before dropping three in a row to the league’s top teams while posting 66.3 points per game.

The losing streak, the program’s longest in three years, included losses at Villanova and Butler before a 72-67 setback to No. 7 Creighton on Monday that snapped Xavier’s 15-game home winning streak. “Three losses,” head coach Chris Mack told reporters. “We did some really good things today. … We played three really good teams. We came up short in all three attempts and I think we learned a lot about our team.” A loss to the Hoyas at home would be damaging for Mack’s squad, which has won five of the last six meetings, including an 81-76 triumph at Georgetown. That was part of an 0-4 start in conference play for the Hoyas, who ended a four-game homestand with a 74-56 loss to Providence on Monday.
