Friday preview: No. 7 Washington vs. No. 10 Georgia

SITE: Charlotte

TIME: 9:45


ANNOUNCERS: Jim Nantz play-by-play, Clark Kellogg analyst

THE SPREAD: Washington by 5.5

RECORDS: Washington 23-10, Georgia 21-11

ENROLLMENTS: Washington 42,000; Georgia 34,180.

THE BUZZ: Both have rosters filled with big-time athletes, but Washington wants to run and Georgia wants to control the tempo. One issue for Georgia is its perimeter shooting; other than Dustin Ware, the Bulldogs don’t have a consistent 3-point threat. Washington has four 3-point threats. The Huskies can struggle if they are forced to rely on their half-court offense, which would seem to play into Georgia’s hands. The Bulldogs would prefer a pace that keeps the score in the 60s. Washington is going to have trouble controlling Georgia F Trey Thompkins, but Georgia is going to have trouble controlling Washington G Isaiah Thomas.
