Georgetown welcomes Xavier in Big East’s lone Thursday game

There’s just one Big East game on the ledger on Thursday evening.

NCAA Basketball: Georgetown at Xavier Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

The Georgetown Hoyas (13-7, 3-4) welcome the Xavier Musketeers (11-10, 3-5) to Capital One Arena Thursday evening for a Big East showdown.

HOW TO WATCH

Time: 8 p.m. ET

TV: CBS Sports Network

Last Meeting: Xavier won 81-75 on January 9 in Cincinnati.


Preview

With the middle of the Big East being such a chaotic mess right now, both of these teams could take advantage with a victory on Thursday night. If Georgetown wins, they improve to 4-4 and move into sole possession of third place in the conference. Xavier would jump up to 4-5 with a victory, and move into a tie for third place with Seton Hall and St. John’s.

The stakes are high, as they so often are in Big East play.
