WHERE: Robins Center, Richmond, Virginia
TIME: 6:00 PM EST
Odds: Georgetown (-6.5)
ALL TIME SERIES: Georgetown leads series 6-2.
Any team who starts a seasons 3-0 is off to a good start.
Unless you have a schedule as weak as the Georgetown Hoyas.
Coming off of easy wins against Jacksonville (Ranked #327 of 351 teams according to KenPom), Mount St. Mary's (#282), and Maryland-Eastern Shore (#332) to start the season, the Hoyas head down to Virginia for their only true road game of the nonconference slate of their schedule.
Through the first three games, Georgetown has a +24 margin of victory although they have played a lower ranked program in each of those three contests. One thing that is fun to watch when the Hoyas play is Jessie Govan. The junior from Queens Village, New York has put up no less than 20 points and 14 rebounds in each of his first three games. They Hoyas will likely lean on him for this game as well as the throughout the entire season.
Supporting players such as Marcus Derrickson (14.3 PPG), and Kaleb Johnson (13.3 PPG, 4.7 RPG) will need to knock down shots to compliment Govan's inside and outside play. For Richmond, redshirt freshman Grant Golden will look to lead a Spiders team coming off of a 82-76 loss to the University of Louisiana on Wednesday night. Golden scored 24 in the loss and leads Richmond in scoring with 14.6 points per game.
