Villanova-Georgetown Preview

Probably the scariest black man ever
Tomorrow, Villanova will take on Georgetown in their first game of the season at the Wachovia Center.  Villanova enters the game ranked number four in the nation and an undefeated record so far in Big East play.  Of course whenever The Hoyas come rolling into town it brings up inevitable talk of 1985.  I will not be lazy enough to discuss the greatest championship in the history of college basketball though.  What I will say is that this is arguably the most elite matchup between these two teams since Kerry Kittles and Villanova lost to Allen Iverson and Georgetown in the semifinals of the 1996 Big East Tournament.  This game doesn't have the starpower that game had but it certainly has a lot to like.
Here's My Breakdown:
Villanova Wins If: They are able to limit Greg MonroeThe 'Cats struggled against Samardo Samuels earlier in the week and you have to believe that JTIII has made note of that.  Fortunately, Villanova was able to cut off the post against Louisville who weren't making any outside shots.  Against Georgetown, they must find a way to limit Monroe without totally selling out to defend the post.
Villanova Loses If: They make stupid mistakes and let Greg Monroe score and rebound at will.
Scottie Is: 79 Points from 2,000 323 points
1,921 points for his career

79 points from 2,000

323 to pass Kerry Kittles' all-time men's scoring record of 2,243

488 to take over Shelly Pennefather’s points record (men or women) of 2,408
Next milestone will is 45 points away, which is Randy Foye’s spot on the Villanova Men’s basketball scoring chart at 1,966 points
