GEORGETOWN LINEUP NOTES: Brandon Murray subbed out of Georgetown’s most recent game against Villanova at the 15:56 mark of the second half and did not return. It appeared that he had suffered some sort of arm injury. Bryson Mozone subbed out of the same game with 14:12 left to go and did not return either. It was officially noted as a lower body injury. Wayne Bristol, Jr., who started against Butler two games ago for Georgetown, did not even dress to play against Villanova. At this point, it is unclear if any of the three men are available for Saturday. Jay Heath, who has appeared in 12 games for Georgetown and started in 11, is out after undergoing hand surgery.
