UConn vs Georgetown Prediction

UConn routed Georgetown 96-73 on Jan. 25 at home for its third straight victory over the Hoyas.

Sanogo led the Huskies with 19 points and eight rebounds while Whaley added 15 points and seven rebounds and freshman forward Jordan Hawkins also had 15 points. Georgetown was paced by Mohammed’s 15 points, seven rebounds and three assists.

It would be easy for UConn to have a letdown after beating Villanova. However, that probably wouldn’t be enough for Georgetown to get under the numbers.
