No. 9 Georgetown Hoyas At West Virginia Mountaineers (12 p.m. on SNY): The Hoyas (13-1, 3-0 Big East) pulled off a thrilling 17-point comeback at the Marquette Golden Eagles Wednesday night to pull of their third straight Big East victory. Guard Jason Clark netted 18 of his team-best 26 points in the second half, while teammate, Hollis Thompson, made a huge 3-pointer with 24 seconds remaining to give Georgetown its three-point victory.

Now, the Hoyas must go on the road to play a gritty Mountaineers squad (11-4, 2-1) led by senior forward Kevin Jones, who leads the Big East in scoring (19.6 points per game) and rebounding (11.6 per game).

Meanwhile, the Friars did their best to upset No. 1 Syracuse Wednesday night, but fell just short, losing 87-73.
