The Georgetown Hoyas return back to D.C. after a rough trip to West Virginia cost them their first Big East loss over the weekend. They'll host the Cincinnati Bearcats, who are back to full strength after that fight that cost them a number of games from some of their best players. The game starts at 9 pm and can be seen on ESPNU.

Despite the suspensions, Cincinnati is still an impressive 12-4 with a 2-1 record in the Big East. Yancy Gates, the face of that fight and the program, is the best player on the team and will be a load to handle inside for the Georgetown front line that doesn't have quite as much girth as Gates does. That matchup in the middle will go a long way in deciding this matchup.
