TODAY’S GAME

SAVANNAH STATE (5-3) at No. 20 GEORGETOWN (5-1)

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Verizon Center

Radio: AM-570



Outlook: Former Georgetown guard Horace Broadnax (1983-86) brings his Tigers to the District to face a Hoyas bunch in the midst of exams. Savannah State has an odd profile: It has no size and shoots 3-pointers well — but attempts few long-range shots. The Tigers also buck convention with their balance; six players average between 6.0 and 10.3 points. As expected from a team coached by a John Thompson Jr. disciple, the Tigers defend well. The bad news is that they are also one of the sloppiest teams in the country, averaging 19.2 turnovers. Still, Savannah State took Michigan to overtime on the road last month before falling 66-64 to a team that has top-five upsets of UCLA and Duke.
