With the start of the return bouts, we're going to try something here. Instead of talking about each game like we did the first time, we're only going to look at what each of Marquette's opponents have done since the last time they played Marquette.

Since Last We Met

Last Meeting: Marquette won, 82-80 (OT)
Record Since: 1-6
Average Points For: 64.9 ppg
Average Points Against: 74.4 ppg

The Hoyas have gone 1-6 since falling in overtime to the Golden Eagles, including each of their last five. The lone win came in a home game against Butler, and as you can see, it's their only league win of the season so far.

Andrea White led the Hoyas in scoring in the first six of the games, averaging 19.5 points per game. Natalie Butler continued her domination of the glass for GU, leading the team in the first six games with 13.8 rebounds. In their most recent game, a 59-49 home loss to Villanova, White and Butler flipped roles. Butler scored 19 to lead the offense, while White ripped down 15 rebounds. Butler wasn't just slacking off, though, as she finished with 14 rebounds as well.

Sophomore Katie McCormick is the most dangerous shooter on the Georgetown roster. Even though she missed the Hoyas' recent game against St. John's, she's shooting 11-32 (34.3%) behind the arc since the loss to Marquette. That's pretty much right on her season mark of 34.5%, even with a 2-9 outing against Providence.
