The Huskies are down to just four games to their season, and they are going to hope to pull off another upset on Wednesday night to get the team to a 20th win on the campaign. There is no doubt that this is one of the better teams in the land and is the one of the top dogs in the Big East, and the argument could have been made to put UConn around a No. 4 or No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament had it been eligible. G Shabazz Napier has been red hot over the course of the last several games, and he is now up over 17 points per game on average on the season. The Hoyas have rolled off nine wins in a row both SU and ATS, and they came up with their signature win of the season on Saturday when the trounced the Syracuse Orange 57-46 at the Carrier Dome. In this run of good fortune, they now have wins over the Orange, the Cincinnati Bearcats, Marquette Golden Eagles, Louisville Cardinals, and Notre Dame Fighting Irish. However, we think that the good luck is about set to end. There’s no way to expect another 33-point effort out of F Otto Porter like Georgetown got against Syracuse, and it is going to be awfully tough to hold a second straight great team in the Big East down on the road. Every dog has his day, and this is a day for the Huskies to shine.
Georgetown vs. Connecticut Pick: Connecticut Huskies +2.5
Georgetown vs. Connecticut Prediction: Connecticut 60 – Georgetown 54
