WASHINGTON -- Chris Wright stood near midcourt, his heavily bandaged broken left hand stuffed in the pocket of a blue-and-gray Georgetown warmup jacket. He stood still and chewed gum while watching his teammates go through a pregame layup drill.That was as close to the action as Wright would get Saturday, stuck on the sideline with an injury the Hoyas hope will heal quickly enough to allow the senior point guard to play in the NCAA tournament.With Wright's 93-game starting streak snapped, No. 11 Georgetown's offense slowed to a halt for stretches Saturday, and Syracuse (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 17 AP) beat its Big East rival 58-51 behind 17 points and seven assists from Scoop Jardine.
• Syracuse snapped a two-game losing streak to Georgetown and won its fourth straight game overall.
• The Hoyas have lost two straight conference games following an eight-game Big East winning streak.
• Georgetown shot 34.6 percent from the field.
• In the last two games, Georgetown is averaging 48.5 points and shooting 30 percent from the field.
