iatus for final exams. The Huskies had not played in 12 days, since a 95-68 win over
Washington, D. Mike Remmers Vikings Jersey .C. ( - Looking to build on a three-game win streak, the now 21st-ranked Georgetown Hoyas will open up the Verizon Center Tuesday evening to host the Xavier Musketeers in a Big East Conference showdown. Georgetown comes into the contest having won each of its last three games, including recent huge victories over Villanova (78-58) and Marquette (95-85 OT) that propelled the team into the new Top-25 poll. The Hoyas find themselves at 6-2 in conference play heading into Tuesday, with a 10-1 mark on their home court. Xavier has been up and down a lot in the last few weeks, with more down results than anything else. The Musketeers have dropped three of their last five games, but are coming off an 89-76 win over DePaul on Saturday. Xavier is 4-4 against Big East competition, and just 1-5 in road games. Xavier and Georgetown are relatively new Big East rivals, and have met on the court nine times in history with this clash set to be the 10th. The Musketeers lead the all-time series over the Hoyas, 6-3, with a 70-53 victory over Georgetown already this season. Hoping to bounce back from a tough loss to Providence just last week, Xavier found itself down to DePaul at halftime this past Saturday by eight points, 50-42. But a furious second-half comeback drove the Musketeers past the Blue Demons, thanks to a 65.4 shooting percentage in the frame. Myles Davis led the charge for Xavier with 25 points and eight rebounds, while freshman Trevon Bluiett came off the bench to hit 8-of-10 from the floor for 21 points. Center Matt Stainbrook netted 17 points with seven boards and six assists, and J.P. Macura rounded out a foursome of double-digit scorers in the contest with 10 points. Xavier has been able to completely obliterate opponents this season by using a strong scoring offense that leads the Big East averaging 77.8 ppg. The team is led individually by Stainbrook, who contributes 12.9 ppg along with a team- best 7.2 rpg mark. Bluiett checks in at second on the team behind Stainbrooks scoring total with 12.3 ppg, and Myles Davis adds in 10.8 ppg, though the guard has largely done it while coming off the bench, having registered just two starts this season. Dee Davis has reprised his point guard role this season to the tune of 116 assists through the teams first 20 games, and has notched 35 steals to help out a defense that has underwhelmed, allowing opponents to score 68.6 ppg - one of the worst totals in the league. Georgetown allowed a six-point lead at halftime against Marquette to slip away, and the Hoyas needed overtime to take down the Golden Eagles on the road. Six players for Georgetown recorded double figures in the contest, led by DVauntes Smith-Riveras 19 points (and five assists). Joshua Smith registered a double-double of 18 points with 15 rebounds, and Isaac Copeland contributed 17 points with six rebounds off the bench. Tre Campbell added 14 points, Mikael Hopkins chipped in with 13, and Aaron Bowen scored 11 in the 95-point outburst for the Hoyas. Georgetowns offense ranks right up there with some of the best in the Big East this season, as the Hoyas currently net 73.1 ppg 46.9 percent shooting from the floor. Smith-Rivera has come alive once again this season, and leads the team in individual scoring with 15.2 ppg. Hes followed in the double- digit department by Smith, who tallies 12.6 ppg, adding in a team-best 6.9 rpg mark to his resume. Smith-Rivera isnt just a flat-put scorer, however, as the guard leads the team in both assists (67) and steals (32). Georgetowns scoring defense has come in a little bit better than Xaviers this season, allowing 65.6 ppg to opponents. Trevor Siemian Vikings Jersey . - Titans quarterback Jake Locker will miss the rest of the season with a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, leaving Tennessee trying to rally with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Trevor Siemian Jersey . Charlottetown scored four times in the third period en route to a 5-2 win over the defending champion Halifax Mooseheads on Friday. . The defending champions’ roller coaster season included trading offensive star Percy Harvin in the midst of the team’s 3-3 start. That move that reportedly irked several Seahawk players, but one management saw necessary to save the team’s chemistry.HARTFORD, Conn. -- Connecticut went down to the wire with another opponent. This time there was no clutch shot by Shabazz Napier. UConns star guard, known for heroics such as a last-second shot that beat Florida earlier this month, missed three times in the final 40 seconds and the 10th-ranked Huskies lost for the first time this season, 53-51 to Stanford. "With Shabazz, you live with that, because hes put this team on his back a lot of times," UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. "But he could have taken it to the basket a couple of times, but he settled for the long 3-ball." Chasson Randle scored 22 points and the Cardinal (8-2) beat a Top 25 team away from Palo Alto for the first time since the 2008 NCAA tournament. The Cardinals previous seven wins this season came over teams that were a combined 32-41. "I think its an important win for our conference," Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said, referring to the Pac-12. "A number of teams have had some real signature wins, and Im just happy that we were able to have one as well." Josh Huestis added 13 points and 10 rebounds and Dwight Powell had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Stanford which overcame a 10-point halftime deficit. DeAndre Daniels had 15 points for UConn (9-1), which was 6 of 10 from behind the arc in the first half and 0 for 12 in the second. Connecticut this season already had beaten Maryland, Indiana and Florida by a point and won by two against Boston College. But the Huskies could not get a clutch basket down the stretch against Stanford. Randles jump shot with 3 1/2 minutes left gave the Cardinal a 52-49 lead. The Huskies pulled within a point when Daniels tipped in a missed 3-point attempt by Niels Giffey. Napier, who finished with 12 points and eight assists, missed two 3-pointers on a key possession with the Huskies trailing 52-51. Stanford got the ball back with 28 seconds left after a scrum underneath the basket. Napier fouled Huestis on the inbounds play and he hit one of two free throws. Napier missed another shot with 8 seconds left, forcing UConn to foul agaain. Brian ONeill Vikings Jersey. He got the ball back on a rebound after Huestis missed another free throw; dribbled down the court, but instead of trying a contested shot, he passed to Omar Calhoun. His long jumber from the right wing bounced off the rim. "I felt like Omar was the most open guy at the time," Napier said. "I felt like it was going to go in, and I bet he did too." UConn led by 10 points at halftime and pushed the lead to 43-30, before consecutive 3-pointers by Anthony Brown and Randle. That started a 14-0 run by the Cardinal, who used a stifling zone defence to hold the Huskies without a field goal for more than 6 minutes. The Huskies were just 5 of 31 from the field in the second half. "It was just a matter of us being aggressive on the defensive end," Randle said. "Just being active, getting our hands moving, getting our feet moving and getting our feet moving and just hustling." A driving basket and free throw by Randle gave Stanford its first lead of the second half at 44-43. The Huskies closed the first half on a 14-3 run that ended when Napier stole the ball from Randle and found Lasan Kromah ahead of the field for an easy layup just before buzzer. UConn came in shooting better than 46 per cent from beyond the arc, with five players having made 10 or more 3-pointers. The loss snapped a 54-game home winning streak against nonconference opponents that dated to 2007. Connecticut was coming off its annual hiatus for final exams. The Huskies had not played in 12 days, since a 95-68 win over Maine, a game in which UConn hit 14 3-pointers. Stanford ended a 13-day break last Saturday with a 27-point win over UC Davis. UConn plays at Washington, another Pac-12 team, on Saturday. The Huskies had dominated that conference, coming into Wednesday they were 17-2 and had won 13 straight since falling to UCLA in the 1995 NCAA West Regional championship. "Well learn from this," Daniels said. "Were not going to have all the time when (Napiers) going to be the hero of the game and knock down a shot."
