The reigning Big East Player of the Week and likely conference Player of the Year pays a visit to Gampel Pavilion Wednesday.
Otto Porter Jr., a super-versatile 6-foot-8 sophomore, dropped 33 on Syracuse last Saturday, catapulting the Hoyas to No. 7 in the latest AP poll. For the Hoyas, Wednesday could mark the team’s 10th straight win.
For UConn, it’s the final big-time matchup of a shortened season.
If the Huskies take down the league-leading Hoyas, they’ll need to neutralize Porter. Here are some pertinent links and stats regarding the sophomore star:
*During Georgetown’s 9-game winning streak, Porter is averaging 18.6 points and 7.8 rebounds while shooting 51 percent from the field and an outrageous 54 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
