Hoyas glide into Philly to take on the Villanova Wildcats in a Big East conference game



The Georgetown Hoyas (14-2 4-1 BE) will take on the Villanova Wildcats unbeaten in Big East play (15-1 4-0 BE) tomorrow in Philadelphia, PA.  Hoya Austin Freeman leads the Hoyas in scoring at (15.5 pts.) and Scottie Reynolds leads the Wildcats in scoring at (18.8 pts).  After thoroughly justifying its new No. 4 ranking with a wild 92-84 victory at Louisville, Villanova takes on a different kind of Big East beast on Sunday.  The Wildcats will have to go from being "sped up" by Louisville's full-court press and defensive pressure to speeding up 11th-ranked Georgetown, which fell behind UConn by 15 points at halftime on Jan. 9 before slowing down the game and stealing a 72-69 victory.

Villanova will want to use its superb guards, led by red-hot senior Scottie Reynolds, to push the pace and unleash its own press against the Hoyas in an effort to take the legs out from Georgetown big man Greg Monroe.  In the mean time, the Hoyas remain confident, focused and determined and ready for any challenge the Wildcats may bring.
