The Georgetown Hoyas had an eight-game winning streak going, but then Kemba Walker happened. The Connecticut Huskies star banged out 31 points, 10 assists, and seven rebounds to lead UConn to a 78-70 victory over their Big East rivals.
The game was close throughout, but the Huskies pulled away late. Four Hoyas scored in double figures, led by Chris Wright’s 19, which included five threes. Austin Freeman scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds, but did not have his best shooting night, hitting only four of his 13 atttempts.
