College men's basketball preview capsule: USF Bulls at No. 14 Georgetown Hoyas, 11 a.m. Saturday

USF at No. 14 Georgetown

When/where: 11 a.m.; Verizon Center, Washington

TV/radio: ESPNU; 1250-AM

Records: USF 13-9, 6-3 Big East; Georgetown 17-4, 7-3

Notable: Two years ago, USF knocked off the Hoyas — then No. 7, the highest ranked team the Bulls have ever beaten — and last season, USF lost 61-55 in Tampa, so the teams have played close games in recent years. Georgetown is 11-1 at home, including a 58-44 win against UConn last time out. … Georgetown is led by G Jason Clark with 15.4 points per game. … With the rare morning tipoff, USF has a 7 a.m. wakeup call this morning, with team breakfast at 7:30.
