OUR PREDICTION: The Musketteers are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games and are 1-4 against the number in their last five road games versus a team with a winning home record. Pryor, a transfer from Robert Morris, will be the key in today's game. Xavier has the better overall team and the better overall talent, but if they can't contain Pryor then Georgetown has a real shot to pull off the upset at home.
