Xavier is having trouble right now, but playing Georgetown should help. The Musketeers have faced some tough opponents during this losing streak, but going back home and facing a team that relies on two offensive players should be a good way to bounce back. Xavier’s defense will be able to lock in on Pryor and Peak and cruise to a win.
