Despite two combined points from Ryan Boatright and Shabazz Napier, UConn took a 22-19 lead into halftime Wednesday against seventh-ranked Georgetown.
In a half played at Georgetown’s pace, the Huskies were able to leak out for a few easy buckets, including Tyler Olander and R.J. Evans layups.
The Hoyas, who went 11:02 without a field goal, shot just 6-for-21 from the floor. The Huskies, at 9-for-26, weren’t much better. DeAndre Daniels led the way with nine points while Otto Porter Jr. — Georgetown’s stud small forward — tallied just one.
