NCAA Basketball: 14 Georgetown Hoyas  vs 8 Missouri Tigers (Pick ‘em)

Georgetown might be visiting the home court of a Big 12 opponent tonight, Nov. 30, but it will probably feel like the typical Big East rivalry game for the Hoyas.

Missouri has proven it can not only play tough defense, and get big underneath the basket (See Ricardo Ratliffe’s two double-double games so far this season). The Tigers are also lights-out from behind the 3-point line.

The 14th-ranked Hoyas are returning it’s starting five from last season’s team that played in the Big East Tournament championship game and finished with a 20-14 record. The Hoyas still likely carrying a little bit of resentment from being ousted from the NCAA tournament in an upset at the hands of the Ohio Bobcats.

Both teams are coming into this match-up undefeated and firmly established in the Top 25. The unfortunate thing for Missouri is that Georgetown has seen this act before, and they have the size and talent to match up with the Tigers.

If you like physical basketball, you might even want to take the time to watch this one. It could get rough. Most importantly, look for Georgetown to get its first signature win of the year with an upset over the No. 8 Missouri Tigers.

Pick: Take Georgetown in this Pick ‘em matchup
