RTC Live: WVU @ GeorgetownPosted by rtmsf on January 8th, 2011
Game #93. RTC Live returns to the Verizon Center in downtown DC for a Big East tilt involving two teams needing a win.
Georgetown and West Virginia square off here at the Verizon Center in an early morning (well, early for a Saturday morning) tip. Both the Hoyas and the Mountaineers come into this one on a bit of a slide. Georgetown is just 1-2 in Big East play. To be fair, they have lost on the road to Notre Dame and St. John’s, neither of which look like bad losses right now. But throw in the loss to Temple from November 30th, and the Hoyas have not looked like the team that I saw cleverly called the best in the Big East two weeks ago. West Virginia, on the other hand, just has not looked like the team we expected. They are also just 1-2 in league play, that win being a two point victory at DePaul. The Mountaineers have also lost at home to St. John’s and Providence. Its not necessarily a talent issue with WVU as much as a chemistry problem; this team doesn’t look like they understand how to play together or what exactly Bobby Huggins is asking of them. This should be a dandy to start your day off with. No one whats to go 1-3 to start the Big East season.
