The Hoyas hold a slim all-time edge, 11-10. The teams split their two meetings last season.
The Hoyas come into this game riding a six-game winning streak following a 1-2 performance in the Maui Invitational.
While the quality of teams defeated over the six games (Coppin State, Syracuse, and Howard) hasn’t been the greatest, the Hoyas couldn’t have picked a better time to get hot.
Marquette, on the other hand, has a modest two-game winning streak after taking care of business against St. Francis and Southern Illinois-Edwardsville to bounce back from their defeat against Wisconsin.
Georgetown guard Rodney Pryor has been the team’s driving force so far this season. He leads the Hoyas in scoring with 19.8 PPG (second in the Big East) and is shooting 55% from the field. Essentially, Pryor is doing what he did at Robert Morris the past couple seasons, except now he’s facing much better competition. If Josh Hart wasn’t in the Big East, Pryor would be near the top of the Big East Player of the Year shortlist at the moment. If the Hoyas want to exit Milwaukee with a victory, he’ll have to continue his strong play.
Sam Hauser, MD
The Marquette freshman has excelled so far through nonconference play. Our Sam Newberry wrote more about him right here. Hauser bounced back from a scoreless performance in the loss to Wisconsin with two strong performances against St. Francis and SIU-E. As he enters the rigors of Big East play, he’ll have to string consistent performances together. Easier said than done, given the talented players he’ll be going up again, but if the first two months have been any indication, Hauser is here to stay.
