(ESPN..Live)UNC Wilmington vs Georgetown Live Basketball

I'm not exactly certain but I don't think this is what most people were expecting out of a season in which the Hoyas would face Maryland locally as well as participate in the 21st edition of the BB&T Classic.

We somehow got to the point where in 2015 Georgetown hosts a random CAA school in the middle of the day in what used to be a decent two day event that incidentally often saw GW beat the Terps on an NFL Sunday.

Georgetown comes into this matchup riding a four game winning streak and, believe it or not, gets a great opportunity to pick up a quality win, for now, against a UNC Wilmington team that is curiously undefeated with just three Division 1 wins to date.

As always, Bradley Hayes, DSR, and Isaac Copeland continue to lead the deepest Hoyas team in quite some time.

Here's some basic info on UNC Wilmington:

Last time out: Wilmington picked up a 93-73 over something called Coker ten days ago.  The last time the Seahawks played a Division 1 team was back on Nov 28 when they picked up a 94-73 victory at East Tennessee State.

They Said It: "We play two teams in our conference that run a modified version of what Georgetown runs in the Princeton offense when you talk about William & Mary and Northeastern," said second year coach and former Louisville assistant Kevin Keatts on why he wanted to play the Hoyas.

RPI: Keatts managed to get the Seahawks into the CIT last year with an RPI of 152.  That's not bad and it would be great if it could get closer to 100, just not at the expense of the Hoyas obviously.

Who to watch for: Senior guard Craig Ponder leads the team in scoring but he's been a bit hit or miss.  Ponder scored a total of 50 points in his first two outings and he had nine steals in his last game.

Keatts has two more guards that average double figures and at least two steals per game in Chris Flemmings and Denzel Ingram.

As you can probably guess, this team likes to press and play up-tempo. Since they've only played three Division 1 teams it's kinda hard to figure out just how good they are to date.

Ok let's talk about the Hoyas.

Protecting the Ball:  With UNC Wilmington playing a Louisville style diamond press it will be important for the Hoyas to keep turnovers at a minimum.  After eight games the assist to turnover ratio is virtually 1 to 1.
