St. John's Vs. Georgetown: Red Storm Looking To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak

(Sports Network) -- The 21st-ranked Georgetown Hoyas have yet to distinguish themselves as an elite Big East Conference team, but they do have an outstanding opportunity to improve their league record tonight against the visiting St. John's Red Storm.

St. John's simply could not get the job done on the boards or at the offensive end in last Saturday's heart-breaking, 53-51 loss to Cincinnati. The Red Storm are now 11-7 overall and 4-4 in Big East action, but four of the last five league games have resulted in losses after an impressive and unexpected 3-0 start. The club is just 2-4 in true road games this season, a mark it hopes to better this evening.

As for Georgetown, it has put together back-to-back victories to improve to 3-4 in Big East action, a lackluster mark that still overshadows a 14-5 overall record. The Hoyas defeated Seton Hall by an 80-75 final on January 18th and have been idle since that affair, so it will be interesting to see if the squad appears well rested or rusty tonight. The three conference wins to date have come over clubs that are expected to finish near the bottom of the Big East standings, so Georgetown still has plenty to prove.

St. John's owns a 52-41 series lead over Georgetown, but the Hoyas won last season's meeting by a 66-59 final.
