When: Tuesday, 7:00 p.m.

Georgetown entered the national rankings for the second time this season on Monday. The first appearance didn't last long thanks to a 17-point loss at Xavier on New Year's Eve.


Four thoughts following Georgetown's 78-58 romp over Villanova and ahead of Saturday's rematch at Marquette.


As the great wrestling philosopher Ric Flair is fond of espousing, to be the best you have to beat the best. No. 4 Villanova visited the Verizon Center Wednesday night.


Have no fear. Though likely aching after Saturday's physical victory over Butler, Jabril Trawick will be ready for Georgetown's Monday night matchup with No. 5 Villanova.
