Georgetown has struggled against UConn recently, as their matchup on Sunday was their seventh consecutive lost matchup.

The losing side was boosted by Supreme Cook, who dropped a double-double on 18 points and 13 rebounds. Less helpful for Georgetown was Jayden Epps’ abysmal 0-5 three-point shooting.
