Press Break The Post's Rundown of Local and National College Basketball

Georgetown’s leading scorer, junior forward DaJuan Summers, started Saturday’s game against Marquette at Milwaukee’s Bradley Center despite a bruised left foot that sidelined him for most of Wednesday’s loss at Cincinnati.

The Hoyas sorely need his scoring contribution against Marquette, the league’s most prolific offense as they attempt to halt a four-game losing streak that has seen them free fall in the conference standings.

. The Golden Eagles boast the Big East’s top-scoring offense, averaging 80.9 points per game with three starters contributing more than 16 points each outing.

Georgetown has been mired in a shooting slump of late, particularly from three-point range, with an offense that ranks 11th in the league (71.9 points). Summers has led all, scoring 14.7 points per game.
