Seton Hall survived what would have been an NCAA Tournament-crippling loss at DePaul on Saturday, keeping its March hopes alive. Up next is another Big East bottom-feeder, as Georgetown visits Prudential Center on Tuesday (6:30 p.m., FS1).
But the Pirates, tied for fourth place in the Big East with Providence, Xavier and Marquette, may not have integral junior forward Ismael Sanogo, who reinjured a sprained ankle in the win over DePaul.
Fortunately for Seton Hall, Georgetown (14-15, 5-11) is reeling, having lost three straight games and five of six, and is just 2-5 on the road in conference games. It was against the Hoyas the Pirates began to turn their season around, pulling out an overtime victory in Washington on Feb. 4 that started this run of five wins in seven contests. With a trip to No. 13 Butler on Saturday in the regular-season finale, Seton Hall can’t afford a misstep.
