SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Guard Scoop Jardine will face Georgetown in the Carrier Dome for the final time in his career, and he's only concerned about one thing.

Getting a win.

Second-ranked Syracuse (23-1, 10-1 Big East) has plenty of those at this juncture of the season and brings a perfect 15-0 home record into the game against the 12th-ranked Hoyas (18-4, 8-3 Big East), who have won five of six.

Georgetown has limited four Big East opponents under 50 points this season, including its last two triumphs. The Hoyas held Connecticut to 44 points and 30 percent shooting last Wednesday, the Huskies' worst output in both categories since the 1990s. Georgetown then limited South Florida to 45 points on Saturday.
