Marquette Vs. Georgetown: Can Hoyas Stay Perfect In Conference?

The Georgetown Hoyas will face the Marquette Golden Eagles tonight, can they keep up their positive momentum?

The Georgetown Hoyas will be facing the Golden Eagles of Marquette in Washington in another early test in the Big East Conference. For a little perspective on the Golden Eagles, we turn to our Georgetown blog Casual Hoya.

Marquette is a blue collar, tough-nosed team that will play hard for 40 minutes. If Georgetown isn't ready to compete, or has extended stretches of inactivity, Marquette can bring the Hoyas back to reality. Despite unexpected losses to LSU and Vanderbilt, the Golden Eagles have played well throughout the early part of their schedule and have collected wins against Ole Miss, Washington, Villanova and Wisconsin (on the road). Even without Jimmy Butler, Marquette has already shown that it has the talent and the fortitude to compete with the top teams in the Big East.

Marquette might not get the headlines that some other Big East schools get, but they can beat anyone an any given day. Like they said, Georgetown needs to bring it for the full 40 minutes if they want to get a win.

We'll have plenty more on this game throughout the day, but for more on all things Georgetown basketball, check out the aforementioned Casual Hoya.
