WHAT’S AT STAKE

Georgetown: The Hoyas are still trying to win their first non-DePaul Big East game this season. In doing so, Georgetown would severely damage that team’s seeding or at-large chances come March.

Seton Hall: Despite being the only team to hand Connecticut a conference loss, the Pirates have a decent amount of work to do over the next five weeks to get into the NCAA Tournament. Seton Hall avoided disaster a month ago against Georgetown and will need to do so again tonight in order to keep themselves in the tourney mix.

IT’S BEEN SO LONG

Georgetown is currently on a six-game losing streak to Seton Hall. Even worse, however, is the Hoyas away losing streak in this conference rivalry which is now up to eight games. Georgetown’s last win at Seton Hall came almost nine years ago to the day - Feb. 10, 2015 - as the Hoyas coasted to an 86-67 victory that night. Your Georgetown starters were DSR, Trawick, Peak, Copeland and Smith. DSR and Copeland combined for 43 as the Hoyas shot 53% from the field in an easy Georgetown win.

OK, please post, post, post away!
