All eyes in the college basketball world will be on Duke-North Carolina tonight, but we have a major upset ahead of the ACC rivalry game.

Villanova, the No. 17 team in the country, has lost its second straight game, falling on the road to Georgetown.

The Wildcats were coming off an upset loss to St. John's. Jay Wright's team has now lost two straight games and three of its last four contests.

Villanova is now 20-7 on the season, 11-3 in the conference.

Georgetown, meanwhile, was impressive in the 85-73 victory.

"Georgetown's young nucleus is no joke and if you need confirmation, just ask Villanova. Hoyas dominate in D.C. Trending upward under Patrick Ewing."

It had been a long time since Villanova lost two straight conference games. "Hoyas snap a 9 game losing streak to the Wildcats, and hands Villanova its first back-to-back conference losses for the first time since 2013, 103 games ago! Biggest win of the season, and most complete effort from start to finish," Hoyas 247 tweeted.

Villanova is going to need to figure things out quickly, as we're just weeks away from the NCAA Tournament.
