Butler hosts Georgetown at Hinkle on Saturday

Both teams could really use a victory here.

NCAA Basketball: Creighton at Butler Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

The Butler Bulldogs (10-10, 3-6) look to pick up another victory Saturday as they play host to the Georgetown Hoyas (6-11, 0-6).

Butler got back to their winning ways earlier this week with a surprising 72-55 victory over Creighton at Hinkle Fieldhouse, behind a season-high 18 points from Bo Hodges. The Bulldogs have struggled in conference play on both sides of the ball, so Wednesday’s performance against Creighton could be seen as a step in the right direction for a Butler team who previously only had conference wins over DePaul and Georgetown.

For the Hoyas, they come into this game in an absolute tailspin. They’ve yet to win a game in 2022, starting conference play 0-6 and losing by an average of 17 points per game. KenPom currently doesn’t have the Hoyas projected to win a single Big East game. Freshman Aminu Mohammad has lived up to the hype, at least, leading the Hoyas with 13.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
