What to Know

Georgetown has enjoyed a two-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. They and the DePaul Blue Demons will face off in a Big East battle at 6:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at Wintrust Arena. Given that the pair suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.

Georgetown pushed their score all the way to 85 on Wednesday, but even that wasn't enough to win. They fell 90-85 to the Red Storm. Georgetown has struggled against the Red Storm recently, as their match on Wednesday was their sixth consecutive lost matchup.

Jayden Epps put forth a good effort for the losing side as he scored 31 points along with seven assists and two steals. He didn't help Georgetown's cause all that much against the Wildcats last Friday but the same can't be said for this game. Another player making a difference was Rowan Brumbaugh, who scored 15 points along with seven assists.

Meanwhile, DePaul's recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Wednesday after their 14th straight loss. They were dealt a punishing 105-71 defeat at the hands of the Golden Eagles. DePaul was in a tough position after the first half, with the score already sitting at 59-29.

DePaul's loss shouldn't obscure the performances of Elijah Fisher, who scored 19 points, and Jaden Henley who scored 19 points along with five rebounds. Fisher continues to roll, besting his previous point total in each of the last four games he's played.

DePaul struggled to work together and finished the game with only six assists. They are winless (0-5) when they just don't pass the ball.

The Hoyas have been struggling recently as they've lost 14 of their last 15 contests, which put a noticeable dent in their 8-18 record this season. As for the Blue Demons, they dropped their record down to 3-23 with that loss, which was their 21st straight on the road dating back to last season.

Going forward, Georgetown is the favorite in this one, as the experts expect to see them win by 4.5 points. This will be their first time playing as the favorites on the road this season.

Georgetown skirted past the Blue Demons 68-65 when the teams last played back in January. The rematch might be a little tougher for Georgetown since the team won't have the home-court advantage this time around. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
