The Georgetown women (3-9, 2-8 MSC) are coming off consecutive losses to Pikeville (KY), and have not tallied in the win column since Jan. 14 versus Life (GA).

The senior heads the pack in points per game (12.3), rebounds per game (5.7), assists per game (2.3), steals per game (1.3), and blocks per game (1.0). She is also one of only four players in the MSC to post 30 or more points in a single game this season.

No. 16 Lindsey Wilson (15-4, 10-4 MSC) is led on the floor by Reagan Turner, who is averaging a team-high 22.3 points per game. She has turned in 20 or more points in each of her last seven appearances. Fellow senior Bree Glover boasts conference-high marks in rebounds (10.5) and blocks (2.7) per game while leading the Blue Raiders in steals per outing (1.6).

Lindsey Wilson won the early-season match-up with Georgetown, defeating the Tigers 72-50 on New Year's Eve.

The No. 17 Georgetown men (13-4, 10-4 MSC) feature one of the best rebounders in the nation in Kyran Jones. He is ranked inside the top five in four different statistical categories, which are total rebounds per game (1st, 12.9), offensive rebounds per game (3rd, 4.2), total rebounds (4th, 220), and defensive rebounds per game (5th, 8.8). Furthermore, Jones also leads Georgetown at 17.5 points per game. As a team, the Tigers rank number five in the NAIA in blocks per game (5.2) and seventh in total blocks (89).

The Lindsey Wilson men (5-12, 3-11 MSC) step back on their home floor for the first time in three weeks. The team completed its most recent four-game road trip with a 1-3 record.

Elijah Jordan maintains his position at the height of the Blue Raiders' scoring list, averaging 15.9 points per game. He also leads the team with 1.3 steals per game. Colen Gaynor has controlled the boards for Lindsey Wilson, corralling 7.4 rebounds per contest to place him inside the top 10 in the MSC.

On the final day of 2020, the then-No. 6 Tigers upended the Blue Raiders 80-68. Lindsey Wilson last defeated Georgetown back on March 3, 2018 in the MSC Tournament semifinals.
