The Villanova Wildcats will travel to Washington D.C. to take on the upstart Georgetown Hoyas. This game will feature two of the best basketball minds the country has to offer with Jay Wright and Patrick Ewing. Jay Wright has done a fantastic job over the years and has Villanova contending for what seems National Championships every year, Meanwhile Patrick Ewing in his first season as head coach for the Hoyas and his first season in general. Before he was a coach for Georgetown Patrick Ewing was a star player for the Georgetown and the New York Knicks, and he already has his team within two wins of last years total with 15 games still to play! So with the improvement, he’s brought to Georgetown this game should be very interesting!
Villanova (16-1) comes into this game as the #1 team in the country and looking to continue steamrolling opponents as they continue forward with National Title aspirations. Jay Wrights group is led by junior guards Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges. The two lead the Wildcats in points per game with 18.8 and 17.5 respectively. Brunson leads the team in assists, while Bridges ranks first on the team in steals and second in rebounds and blocks! Oh yeah, can’t forget to mention that both are shooting above .500 from the field so not only are they scoring but they’re efficient. With these two veteran guards leading the charge it will be tough to knock off Villanova at any point in the season
Georgetown (12-5) is looking to make a name for itself, and that can all start with a win at home against Villanova. Patrick Ewing will have his boys ready to rock against the Wildcats, and it will take a full team effort if they’re going to upset the #1 team in the country. Georgetown begins and ends with their junior Center Jessie Govan; he leads the team in points, rebounds, and blocks per game. The kid is a monster! He is a true rim protector and will block and alter most shots you try and get in the paint. Having a player like Govan lurking around by the rim allows Georgetown to be more aggressive on the defensive end of the floor. I think the only way to slow down the Wildcats is for the Hoyas to have a constant rotation at guard and just work on making Brunson and Bridges lives extremely difficult with high-pressure defense. It’s worth a shot so let’s see what Pat does tonight!
