The Georgetown Hoyas will play their first game in more than a week and hope to snap a two-game skid. On the season, Georgetown is averaging 71.7 points on 49.4 percent shooting and is allowing 64.5 points on 38.1 percent shooting. D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera leads Georgetown with 14.2 points and 3.7 assists while Joshua Smith is averaging 12.8 points and 6.8 rebounds. Mikael Hopkins is gabbing 7.3 rebounds per game and L.J. Peak is shooting 47.5 percent from the field. The Georgetown Hoyas are a deep offensive team with seven players averaging at least five points but they’re turning the ball over 15 times per game and shooting just 30.9 percent from deep. Georgetown is holding teams to 29.7 percent shooting from deep and forcing 13.7 turnovers per game.
The Tigers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Hoyas are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games.
The Towson Tigers have the big bodies to give Georgetown trouble and have been lights out against the spread. Getting 17 free points with a solid Towson team seems to be the play.
