Georgetown

- Tre Campbell leads the Hoyas with 17 points. He is shooting 5-7 from the field including 5-6 from beyond the arc.

- Facing one of the better rebounding teams in the nation, Georgetown has not allowed Xavier to dominate them on the boards. They brought down a total of 18 in the first half.

- Georgetown needs to do a better job turning Xavier over if they want to come away with the upset on the road. They have only turned them over once so far.

Xavier

- In his first start since suffering a hard fall against Villanova, freshman Edmond Sumner has sprinted out to eight points on 2-4 shooting from deep.

- One of the nation's best rebounders, James Farr, has already accumulated four rebounds in limited action.

- The Musketeers struggled from the floor shooting 34.3% from the field. They are also shooting 4-12 from deep.
