Two big wins, but only one of the results is really surprising. (Sorry, DePaul.)
Let's get to it, shall we?
- Connecticut 99, DePaul 78 - Five points from Ryan Boatright in the first 150 seconds of the game helped UConn jump out to a 9-0 lead, and that was pretty much it for the Blue Demons. Here's how badly things went for DePaul: Brandon Young had 35 points on 13-22 shooting and it didn't even come close to mattering.
- Pittsburgh 73, #19/22 Georgetown 45 - It was the worst loss by a Georgetown team since losing to Maryland 104-71 back on December 10... of 1974. The last time the Hoyas lost a home game that badly? December 7, 1971, when St. John's blasted Georgetown by a score of 107-67. Nine different Panthers scored at least five points, led by Talib Zanna's 15. For more, you can read Cardiac Hill for the Pitt perspective, or Casual Hoya for the Georgetown side of things.
