3 things to watch
1. Not many road tests: Though George Washington stands as one of the best mid-major teams in the country with impressive victories over Virginia, Tennessee, and Seton Hall to their credit, the Colonials haven't had many road tests this season. In fact, the only road game that they had this season was back on November 19 against the not-so-vaunted South Florida Bulls. DePaul is certainly better than USF is and although they don't have a terrific home court advantage, it will be intriguing to see GWU in a road environment for what is only the second time this season.
2. Righting the ship against ranked teams: DePaul has struggled against ranked teams over the past few years to say the very least. Last season, DePaul went 1-4 according to their official athletics website, and their last win over a ranked opponent at the ol' Rosemont Horizon was way back on January 3, 2008. On that night, Draelon Burns and Karron Clarke combined for 34 points in an 84-76 victory over Dante Cunningham, Scottie Reynolds, Corey Fisher and the then-No. 17 ranked Villanova Wildcats in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. The Colonials check in at No. 20 at this point of the season and are the first ranked team that the Blue Demons have faced this year. Will they start righting the ship? Time will tell.
3. Tyler Cavanaugh's red-hot shooting ways: The junior forward from Syracuse, New York has been lighting it up of late, especially from 3-point range. In his last six games, the 6-foot-9 forward has shot 11-for-19 (.578) from the perimeter. He's not taking a ton of 3-pointers, only 31 attempts this year to be precise, but on the other hand, he's also converted on 15 of them this season. So he's a threat to say the least, albeit one that isn't going to be pulling up in transition or taking all of his shots from deep. DePaul will have to defend the perimeter well if they want to win this game and stopping Cavanaugh might be priority numero uno.
