Why Rutgers can cover
Rutgers got off to a slow start with its loss to Princeton, but it bounced back by covering the 22-point spread in its 69-45 win over Boston. Freshman guard Gavin Griffiths poured in 25 points on 9 of 15 shooting in the win, while senior forward Aundre Hyatt added 17 points and four rebounds. Hyatt led Rutgers with 19 points and eight boards in a 66-57 win over Bryant on Sunday.
Senior center Clifford Omoruyi posted a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds in that game, and he is nearly averaging a double-double overall this season. Georgetown is coming off a brutal loss to Holy Cross, and it has four transfers/freshmen in its starting lineup. The Hoyas have only notched one road win in their last 20 road games, covering the spread once in their last six games overall.
Why Georgetown can cover
Georgetown has historically dominated this series, winning 12 of the last 13 head-to-head meetings. The Hoyas held an 11-point lead with eight minutes remaining against Holy Cross, and they only committed four turnovers in that game. They are led by proven head coach Ed Cooley, who is in his first year with the program, and they should continue to improve as the season progresses.
