Alabama has rolled through the early portion of their schedule, going 7-0 straight up (3-1 against the spread) with wins over North Florida, Oakland, Maryland, Wichita State, Purdue, Alabama A&M, and VCU.

Georgetown (5-1 straight up, 4-0 against the spread) was tagged with its only loss of the season on November 21 by then-No. 12 Kansas, who grabbed a 67-63 win over the Hoyas at the Maui Invitational tournament.
The Hoyas have managed to beat Savannah State, N.C. Greensboro, Chaminade, Memphis, and IUPUI so far this season, winning their game against the then-No. 8 Tigers by a score of 91-88 in Hawaii on November 23.
Against Memphis Jason Clark and Henry Sims combined for 50 points, with Clark pouring in 26 points and Sims picking up 24 points to go along with eight rebounds. Hollis Thompson and Markel Starks each scored 12 points in that contest for Georgetown.
Alabama last took on Georgetown back in December 2007, losing 70-60 as an 8-point home underdog. That combined tally fell UNDER the posted sportsbook total of 132.5.
