When the UConn Huskies (19-7, 9-5 Big East) host long-time rivals the No. 7 Georgetown Hoyas (21-4, 11-3 Big East) they might just be facing their stiffest test of the season.
The Hoyas are big, physical and are in the thick of the race for a Big East championship and a possible No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
Georgetown enters having won nine straight games to seize the top spot in the conference and will face a Huskies team that has won back-to-back games after dropping a disappointing result to Villanova.
Both teams are playing for something, the Huskies for pride and the Hoyas for postseason position, and these games are always intense.
These are the five keys for the Huskies to nab their 20th win of the season.
