Will Bowen's stellar play continue off the bench?
Aaron Bowen has been playing well coming off the bench so far this season, but in the game against Texas A&M CC, he really played well towards the end of the first half and for the entire second half. His defense and his energy level has been helping this team get wins. Bowen is a good player and is another big piece in an already deep Hoya lineup. Against this Robert Morris team, Bowen's high play will need to continue, and his energy off the bench can help Georgetown get a win. If I were a betting man, I would say that Bowen will score more than 10 points and have a few steals.
WIll Smith-Rivera get it going?
D`Vauntes Smith-Rivera has been struggling in the first two games of the year, and with the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament coming up, he needs to get it going. DSR needs to attack the basket, even though he has been doing a good job at getting his teammates involved so far. Georgetown's head coach John Thompson III did take the point guard out in the second half because there were better combinations that worked while he was not on the floor. A well-rounded performance could be exactly what Smith-Rivera and the Hoyas need with the Bahamas in their near future.
Georgetown's necessity for a hot start
It's been hot 'n cold for Georgetown so far, with a hot start coming in their first game, and a lackluster one in their second. It will be extremely important that they start fast and not keep this team in the game, and their depth should be an asset. Marcquise Reed is one of the most important players on the Colonials, and he is a terrific scorer. For that reason, it's rather imperative that they don't let Reed get in a zone, and come out running on all cylinders to start things off.
