The No. 9 Georgetown Hoyas, winners of eight in a row, face yet another tough road test. After vanquishing fellow top teams Villanova and Syracuse on the road earlier in the streak, the Hoyas must now travel to Hartford to face Kemba Walker and No. 13 Connecticut. The game is at 7 p.m. on MASN.
The Hoyas have been on a roll recently, thanks to improved offense and a resurgent Austin Freeman. The Huskies, meanwhile, started the season on a roll, but have lost three of their last five, including home losses to Louisville and Syracuse. Still, they are always difficult to top at home, so Georgetown will need to bring it tonight to extend its streak.
This is a big game for the Huskies if they want to remain in contention for a bye to the Big East tournament quarterfinals. They are just 7-5 in the Big East, and trail the Hoyas by a game and a half for third place. The Hoyas, meanwhile, are one game behind second-place Notre Dame, so this is also a big game for them.
