Georgetown Vs. Marquette: Hoyas Wrap Regular Season With Road Trip To Milwaukee

The No. 11 Georgetown Hoyas (22-6, 12-5 Big East) wrap up their regular season conference schedule with a trip to No. 8 Marquette on Saturday (24-6, 13-4), with second place in the conference on the line.

The No. 11 Georgetown Hoyas (22-6, 12-5 Big East) wrap up their regular season conference schedule with a trip to No. 8 Marquette (24-6, 13-4) on Saturday, with second place in the conference on the line. Both teams have already secured double-byes in next week's Big East conference tournament, played at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

When these two teams met in early January in D.C, the Hoyas trailed the Golden Eagles by 17 points with 13 minutes to play, only to have Georgetown storm back and claim a 73-70 victory, courtesy of 26 points from Jason Clark and a late-game defensive swarm.

Georgetown is coming off a 59-41 win over Notre Dame on Monday night, a game in which the Hoyas defense was again impressive. Georgetown held the Irish to 33 percent shooting from the floor, including just 18 percent from behind the three-point line.

Marquette had a five-game winning streak ended in an ugly 72-61 loss to Cincinnati on Wednesday, a game in which the Golden Eagles turned the ball over 17 times.
