Today should be another action packed Saturday for the local teams, as four D.C. teams will be playing today.â†µ
Let's take a look at today's slate of games:
Syracuse Orange at Georgetown Hoyas, 12pm CBS: The 11th ranked Hoyas will try and defeat another ranked Big East rival today as Syracuse comes to town on Georgetown's 'Senior Night'. The Hoyas will try to get over an embarrassing loss from earlier in the week and they will attempt to do so with the loss of senior guard, Chris Wright.â†µ
George Mason Patriots at Georgia State Panthers, 6pm (unknown):The Patriots have locked up the CAA title and look to be the hottest team in the D.C. area, both college or pro. They close out their regular season schedule today at the Georgia State Panthers, but really, the Patriots are probably just waiting for March to get here.â†µ
Washington Capitals at New York Islanders,7pm Comcast Sportsnet: No other way to put it, the Caps got embarrassed last night at home, losing 6-0 to the Rangers. Mike Green was injured and looks like he will be out tonight's game against the Islanders.â†µ
Dallas Mavericks at Washington Wizards, 8pm CSN+: After losing on the road against Miami last night, the Wizards come back home to take on perhaps the hottest team in the league at the moment. The Mavs come in riding a 4 game winning streak and it'll be up to the Wizards to get some home cooking going and stop that streak.
