WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's men's soccer squad (3-8-1) will host the Princeton University Tigers (6-5-1) on Tuesday in the squad's final nonconference matchup of the season. Kickoff at Shaw Field is scheduled for 3 p.m. The contest will be broadcast live on GUHoyas.com with Dan Helfrich and Tom Greaser calling the action.

This past weekend, the Hoyas fell to the DePaul Blue Demons, 1-0, at Shaw Field in a BIG EAST Conference contest. The Hoyas outshot the Blue Demons, 17-7, but just couldn't find the equalizer after giving up a goal in the 15th minute.

Junior midfielder Arun Basuljevic (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac) is second with four points for the year on two goals, while sophomore defender Brendan McDonough (Matthews, N.C./Charlotte Catholic) is third with a goal and an assist to his credit for three points.

Sophomore goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski (Alamo, Calif./De La Salle) has been solid in the net with 50 saves in 11 games, two shutouts and a 1.25 GAA.

Princeton is 6-5-1 overall and has won its last two nonconference games, including a 4-1 win over Rutgers last Tuesday. The Tigers dropped a 2-1 overtime game at Columbia on Saturday in Ivy League action.

A five-point week by senior Greg Seifert sees his season total improve to 17 points. He has scored a team-leading seven goals and three assists. Freshman Benjamin Martin has three goals and two assists for eight points, while sophomore Sean McSherry and senior Vikram Pothuri have six points apiece. Senior Josh Haberman has played every minute in net and owns a 1.21 goals against average and a .737 save percentage.

The Hoyas are 5-0-1 all-time against the Tigers and 3-0 at home. The last meeting was a 3-1 Hoya victory in New Jersey during the 2014 season. Bakie Goodman (Sarasota, Fla./Pine View School for the Gifted) tallied an assist in that contest. The last meeting at Shaw Field was a 3-2 GU win during the 2013 season.
