Two teams that know each other well from decades of Big East play, coached by two alumni of the league, will do battle tonight in Storrs as the Georgetown Hoyas face the No. 20 UConn Huskies.
It’s been a nightmare season for Georgetown (6-10, 0-5 Big East), and the Patrick Ewing Era might be in trouble in Year 5. The Hoyas had plenty of transfers away from last season’s Big East Tournament title team, and are now a sieve defensively. Freshman Aminu Mohammed (13.6 points, 8.2 rebounds) is a piece to build around, but the Hoyas are getting thumped with alarming regularity.
UConn (13-4, 4-2 Big East) has won three straight, including back-to-back games against Butler last week thanks to Covid-19 rescheduling. The Huskies attack defensively, holding opponents to just 43.6% eFG, good for ninth in the country. R.J. Cole and Adama Sanogo are one of the best inside-outside threats in the conference.
