VCU vs. Georgetown Line

The VCU vs. Georgetown line was coming in at -5.5 with Virginia Commonwealth the underdog.  The spread action on this game was practically 50/50 on both sides, as was the total of 136.5. 

Georgetown is the number 6-seeded team vs. VCU as the number-11 seeded team.    

A pivotal player for the Hoyas is back with Chris Wright returning from injury.  Georgetown suffered a four-game skid without him.

"Having him back in our lineup is really good," leading scorer Austin Freeman said Thursday. "Just to have his ability to penetrate, get to the basket, create his own shot and also be able to create shots for his teammates. It's going to be good to have that back in our lineup, and also have his voice back on court. He's one of our captains, one of our leaders."

"It was tough knowing you can help and you can provide leadership for your team, and it was tough to sit through that," Wright said. "I wasn't looking at it as, 'Gosh, I can't believe this is it for me.' I'm just trying to be there any way I could for my team."
