STORRS, Connecticut (Ticker) -- If Connecticut was still celebrating its rout of Oklahoma, Huskies' coach Jim Calhoun quickly got the attention of his players.
The top-ranked Huskies responded to an early timeout with a pair of big first-half runs and recorded their second straight lopsided win, drubbing Georgetown, 94-70, in a Big East Conference contest.
Coming off Sunday's 86-59 victory against Oklahoma, the Huskies (14-1, 2-0 Big East) fell behind the Hoyas, 11-6. An angry Calhoun called timeout with 17:42 remaining to scream at his players and briefly benched Emeka Okafor and Taliek Brown.
The Huskies responded with a 15-0 run to take control of the contest and later added an 11-0 tear before the half was over. Six different players scored during the first run.
Okafor, who just missed a triple-double against the Sooners, matched a career high with 27 points on 11-of-16 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Huskies raced to a 56-30 halftime lead en route to their 11th straight victory. It was Okafor's 39th career double-double and 11th of his the season.
"That's the objective - have a deep bench and be able to run, run, run," Okafor said. "Sub in fresh guys and have equal talent on the court and then run, run, run again. That wears you down physically, mentally and emotionally."
Brown added a season-high 20 points, one shy of a career high. He also handed out seven assists to move into third place on the Huskies' all-time list.
"We like to get a lot of easy baskets, a lot of fast breaks, spot-up 3-pointers, that is our game," Brown said. "This is the best we've ever played in the four years I've been here."
Ashanti Cook scored 18 points for the Hoyas (10-3, 1-3), who suffered their third straight loss. Connecticut has won seven straight and 14 of its last 16 meetings with Georgetown.
"Except for the start of the game, the first four of five minutes, I thought we played better in the first half than we did in either half against Oklahoma," Calhoun said.
The Huskies pounded the Hoyas in transition, shooting 53 percent (38-of-72) from the floor, including 63 percent (24-of-38) in the first half.
"This (UConn) team is athletic," Georgetown coach Craig Esherick said. "They play hard on defense. They are not going to let you catch the basketball."
Freshman Charlie Villanueva's tip-in capped the first spurt and gave UConn a 21-11 lead with 13:27 remaining. Rashad Anderson's dunk completed the second one and made it 41-21 with 5:41 to play.
"They have good players, but they got caught at Gampel Pavilion," Calhoun added, "We put a flash on them that only so many teams that I've had can do. We're coming at you with so many numbers. We're locking you down, we're stealing the basketball, we're blocking your shots. We're doing all those kinds of things."
Brandon Bowman and Gerald Riley added 17 points apiece for the Hoyas, who were outrebounded, 47-31. Georgetown was held to 39 percent shooting (28-of-66).
