The UMBC Retrievers and Georgetown Hoyas meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Capital One Arena. The UMBC Retrievers look to get above a .500 record. The Georgetown Hoyas look for their fourth win. 

The UMBC Retrievers are averaging 74 points on 43.1 percent shooting and allowing 77.2 points on 49.6 percent shooting. Colton Lawrence is averaging 15.7 points and 3 rebounds, while Matteo Picarelli is averaging 13.7 points and 0.8 rebounds. Jacob Boonyasith is the third double-digit scorer and Jarvis Doles is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The UMBC Retrievers are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 78.1 percent from the free throw line. The UMBC Retrievers are allowing 43.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 27.3 rebounds per game.

The Georgetown Hoyas are averaging 76.5 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 73.7 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Primo Spears is averaging 16.3 points and 3.2 rebounds, while Brandon Murray is averaging 15.4 points and 4.2 rebounds. Qudus Wahab is the third double-digit scorer and Jay Heath is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Georgetown Hoyas are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line.

The Retrievers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Hoyas are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 Saturday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games. The over is 4-1 in Retrievers last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Hoyas last 7 Saturday games.

The Georgetown Hoyas should be big favorites as they have a clear talent edge, but they’re also a team that has losses to Northwestern, Loyola Marymount and American. Georgetown doesn’t look good, to say the least, and Patrick Ewing is probably fighting for his coaching job at this point. I want nothing to do with the Hoyas. Give me the UMBC Retrievers and the points.
