The Georgetown Hoyas (6-1), fresh off a 57-55 win over the No. 12 Alabama Crimson Tide, welcome the NIT Highlanders (3-3) to the Verizon Center in a Saturday afternoon contest. The Hoyas escaped with the upset win Thursday night after junior forward Hollis Thompson sank a three-pointer against Alabama with one second left on the clock. Thompson and senor guard Jason Clark will need to perform at a high level all season long for the Hoyas to succeed.
NJIT, unfortunately, is perhaps best known for owning Division 1's longest streak of futility, having lost 51 straight games between 2007 and 2008.
Here's everything you need to know about Saturday's game between the Highlanders and Hoyas:
