Georgetown and DePaul will face off in a Big East battle at 7 p.m. ET at Capital One Arena. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close matchup.

Meanwhile, DePaul lost to the Providence Friars on the road by a decisive 75-64 margin. Guard Umoja Gibson put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 16 points and five assists in addition to five rebounds.
The losses put Georgetown at 5-15 and the Blue Demons at 9-11. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Hoyas are stumbling into the contest with the 352nd most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 78.6 on average. DePauls have had an even harder time: they are 36th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 74.6 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
