Recap: Connecticut 79, Georgetown 62

Image from here.
The expression "playing out the string" comes to mind as the Hoyas lost their fourth straight game with an injured Chris Wright today, 79-62.

Georgetown remains unable to score without Wright leading the offense - in the seven halves of basketball that Georgetown has played without Chris Wright (2nd half v. Cinci forward), the Hoyas have averaged 0.83 points per possession. In the 10+ games previous to his injury (thru 1st half vs. Cinci), G'town had averaged 1.09 points per possession.

The Hoyas defense was no great shakes today either, especially in the first half. The Huskies simply controlled their offensive board, grabbing 9 of their own misses and converting them into 10 points. Of course, part of the defensive issues were traceable back to the offense - UConn converted 7 steals into 12 points in the Lift-off half as well.

That about all the time I've got tonight, so the stats will have to speak for themselves.


Let's run the numbers:
