What to Know

The Georgetown Hoyas are 1-3 against the #20 Connecticut Huskies since January of 2016, but they'll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Tuesday. Georgetown and the Huskies will face off in a Big East battle at 8:30 p.m. ET at Harry A. Gampel Pavilion. UConn should still be riding high after a win, while the Hoyas will be looking to right the ship.

The game between Georgetown and the Villanova Wildcats this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Georgetown falling 85-74 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. Georgetown's loss came about despite a quality game from forward Collin Holloway, who had 25 points and five assists. Holloway hadn't helped his team much against the Providence Friars last Thursday, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Holloway's points were the most he has had all year.

Meanwhile, UConn strolled past the Butler Bulldogs with points to spare last week, taking the contest 75-56. Among those leading the charge for the Huskies was guard Tyrese Martin, who had 27 points in addition to six rebounds.

The Hoyas have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 15.50 point spread they are up against. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Georgetown is now 6-10 while UConn sits at 13-4. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: Georgetown is stumbling into the matchup with the 18th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 76.4 on average. The Huskies' defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 38.60%, which places them 17th in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
