COLLEGE BASKETBALL ROUNDUP : Connecticut Rolls Over Georgetown to Stay Unbeaten

From Associated Press

After second-ranked Connecticut's close victory over Providence last weekend, Coach Jim Calhoun was upset the Huskies never had one of their runs to take command of the game.

On Monday night, the Huskies made him wait until the second half, but it was a vintage 12-0 run and Connecticut went on to a 93-73 over No. 10 Georgetown at Hartford, Conn., to remain the only unbeaten Division I team.

"In the second half, we attacked instead of waiting around," Calhoun said. "We dominated them the entire second half."

The Huskies, 13-0 overall and 6-0 in the Big East Conference, ended the Hoyas' 11-game winning streak and won their 11th consecutive Big East regular-season game, the second-longest streak in conference history. St. John's won 14 in a row in 1984-85.

Georgetown (11-2, 5-1) hadn't lost since the season opener against Arkansas.
