Louisville Vs. Georgetown: Hoyas Look To Continue Surge Against Rick Pitino's Cardinals

The road doesn't get any easier for No. 13 Georgetown. After winning a tough road game at Villanova, they come home to face No. 15 Louisville, who is also on a roll.

A couple weeks ago, both teams were in danger of fading from the Big East picture, but both have bounced back. The Hoyas have won four straight games, while Louisville is coming off a thrilling double overtime win on the road against No. 6 Connecticut. They also defeated West Virginia at home by one point, completing a two-game stretch filled with drama. 

Have the Cardinals truly turned it around, though? It's an open question, once you compare them to the Hoyas. Georgetown had close calls against Villanova and Seton Hall, but their last home game was a 25-point blowout victory over a St. John's team that just beat Duke. Austin Freeman has turned it on in particular recently, and the Cardinals will have a lot of trouble containing him.

The game will take place at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
