Georgetown, Syracuse meet one last time as Big East rivals
Porter knows Syracuse will have something more in store for him to deal with this time around.
“That one game, they look at it, they’ll try to learn from their mistakes, as well,” Porter said. “So they’re going to try to key on me more, which is going to open up more for everybody else.”
He was held to 17 points in Georgetown’s most recent game, a 67-57 loss at unranked Villanova. The Hoyas turned the ball over 23 times and had an 11-game winning streak end.
They also missed out on a chance to clinch top seeding for the Big East tournament — and perhaps a No. 1 seeding for the NCAA tournament.
“A humbling experience,” freshman guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera said. “Just a reminder that we can’t get ahead of ourselves. We ended up winning 11 straight; I think we got complacent with that.”
He and his teammates can right themselves in a big way Saturday against Syracuse (23-7, 11-6), which ended a three-game losing streak by defeating DePaul 78-57 on Wednesday.
Thompson called it “fitting” that the schools’ last conference matchup has a title at stake.
Georgetown enters the game tied for the Big East’s best record with Louisville and Marquette, but the Hoyas own the tiebreakers.
“It’s going to be a competitive day — and a sad day, too,” Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins said. “The Big East, there’s no better way to end it: Syracuse vs. Georgetown. You couldn’t script it better.”
