WASHINGTON, D.C. - The No. 20-ranked Georgetown University men's basketball team plays the second game of a five-game homestand on Monday night, hosting Savannah State at Verizon Center. The game is slated to tip off at 7:30 p.m.

There will be no television for the game, but a live video feed of the game will be available on the Georgetown Athletics website, www.guhoyas.com. The game can be heard locally on AM 570, with Rich Chvotkin providing the call.

Georgetown is coming off a 73-49 win over American on Saturday at Verizon Center. Sophomore guard Chris Wright (Bowie, Md./St. John's College H.S. [D.C.]) scored a career-high 22 points to lead Georgetown, while Summers added 14 points and five rebounds and senior guard Jessie Sapp (New York, N.Y./National Christian Academy [Md.]) added 14 points and four rebounds. Sophomore guard Austin Freeman (Mitchelleville, Md./DeMatha) scored five points and set a career-high with six assists.

This is the second-ever meeting between Georgetown and Savannah State. The last meeting was a 78-49 Hoya win during the 2005-06 season at Verizon Center. The lone remaining Georgetown player from that team was Sapp, who scored 11 points and had four assists in 26 minutes.

Summers leads the team in scoring with 13.7 points per game, is grabbing 3.7 rebounds per game and shooting 55.6 percent from the floor. Freshman Greg Monroe (New Orleans, La./Helen Cox), the reigning BIG EAST Rookie of the Week, is second on the team with 13.3 points and leads the team with 5.5 rebounds per game. Monroe is tied for fourth in the BIG EAST, and ranks No. 17 nationally, in field goal percentage, connecting on 63.0 percent of his field goals. He is also tied for fourth in the league with 2.4 blocks per game.

Wright is third on the team in scoring with 13.2 points per game and leads the team with 3.8 assists per game. He connected on a career-high eight field goals in the win over American and tied his personal best with three three-pointers.

Freeman, who was named to the Old Spice Classic All-Tournament team last week, is fourth on the team in scoring with 13.0 points per game, second on the team with 4.8 rebounds and is shooting 48.0 percent from the floor. Sapp, meanwhile, is averaging 9.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game.
