• Georgetown opened the game with an 18-3 run and led the entire game. UConn was never closer than three points.

• The Huskies had won 14 consecutive home games and five straight conference home games played in December.
• The Hoyas are 14-1 when DaJuan Summers scores at least 17 points and 10-1 when Chris Wright scores in double figures.
