It's also the final home game for Marquette, Senior Night for walk-on Michael Mache, and may very well be Henry Ellenson's final career regular season game at the Bradley Center

Line: Marquette is favored by three-and-a-half points, per OddsShark.
Records ATS: Georgetown 13-16 || Marquette 12-16
Georgetown: This has been a nightmare season for the Hoyas, but a loss here would take it to entirely new heights. That's not to say Marquette is a bad team or losing on the road is an unforgivable sin, but a loss would take Georgetown to 14-16, almost certainly clinching a sub-.500 record for the season. For a team with the amount of talent Georgetown has, that's unacceptable.
In the first meeting of these two teams, back on January 2, Georgetown won thanks to a 16 point, eight assist performance from D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera. DSR will need to (at least) replicate that for the Hoyas to defeat Marquette.
As far as BIG EAST Tournament seeding goes, the Hoyas sit at 7-9 in conference play at the moment. Butler and Providence are above them at 8-9, so Georgetown needs to win and then hope one of those two teams lose to be able to control their own fate in avoiding playing Wednesday night to open the BET.
Marquette: As noted above, the biggest thing for Marquette is that this is likely Henry Ellenson's final regular season home game. The Rice Lake, Wisconsin native is projected as a top 10 pick in the NBA Draft, and will likely be leaving Milwaukee for greener pastures.
However, Marquette could improve to 19-11 with a win, with a chance (either Saturday at Butler, or in the BIG EAST Tournament) to win 20 games for the first time since 2012-13.
Marquette is likely headed to the NIT, but given how they fared last season (13-19), that's an improvement.
Marquette is currently tied with Georgetown and, thus, would also improve to 8-9 in conference play with a victory. That would put them one step closer to not having to play Wednesday night of the BET.
