No. 7 Georgetown won its eleventh game in a row by defeating Rutgers 64-51 on Saturday night. Otto Porter Jr had 28 points in a game that will likely be remembered for the 51 combined fouls.
Despite playing in front of an NCAA record on campus crowd of 35,012, No. 11 Georgetown extended its winning streak to nine by defeating No. 8 Syracuse 57-46 behind Otto Porter Jr’s career-high 33 points.
No. 11 Georgetown (20-4, 10-3) destroyed DePaul 90-66 on Wednesday night at the Verizon Center behind D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera’s 33 points. The Hoyas travel to Syracuse for a first place showdown with their heated rivals over the weekend.
