WASHINGTON (AP) - Jabril Trawick is back for Georgetown after missing five games with a broken jaw.
The Hoyas said the junior guard was cleared to play Monday and would suit up for that night's game against No. 9 Villanova.
However, the Hoyas had to face the Wildcats without senior center Moses Ayegba, who was serving a one-game NCAA suspension.
Trawick had started all 14 games and was averaging 7.1 points when he was injured against Providence on Jan. 8.
The Hoyas (11-8, 3-5 Big East) went 1-4 while Trawick was sidelined. Georgetown remains without center Joshua Smith, who will miss the rest of the season due to academic issues.
Ayegba has averaged 2.1 points. The school said his sanction was related to his nine-game suspension as a freshman for violating pre-enrollment rules.
