Game Thread: West Virginia at (12) Georgetown

Tonight's matchup between the Mountaineers of West Virginia (13-4) vs. the 12th ranked Hoyas of Georgetown (12-4) is a conference matchup from one of the most talented conferences in men's college basketball.

The Big East has eight teams in the top 25 and are continuing to look good in non-conference games.  Georgetown, who at the beginning of the season looked like a contender for the national title, has struggled a little bit as of late, but remains a power packed team.  Five of the last six games for the Hoyas have been against teams ranked 13th or higher, a brutal schedule for anyone.  The last game in that streched was a hard fought game on the road against no. 3 Duke.  Georgetown dropped that game 76-67. 

West Virginia is another team that was ranked early in the season, but has sinced dropped off after losing to Marquette and UConn.  The Mountaineers barely survived a scare this past Saturday courtesy of South Florida as they blew a 17 point first half lead.  They held on to win 62-59. 

The key for the West Virginia is their shooting.  They have shot an abysmal 34.3% from the field in their last three conference games and have only averaged 56.7 points per game. 

Georgetown has won 12 of the last 15 meetings between these two teams going into the game tonight.
