UC loses rare Friday night game to Georgetown

 

CINCINNATI (AP) - Otto Porter Jr. scored 16 points while playing in foul trouble, and No. 15 Georgetown wasted a 12-point lead in the second half before rallying for its seventh straight win Friday night, 62-55 over Cincinnati.

 

Markel Starks hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 5:35 left and made five free throws in final minute, helping the Hoyas (19-4, 9-3) stay atop the Big East. They were tied with Syracuse and Marquette heading into the weekend games.

Starks finished with 17 points. Freshman D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 14.

Cincinnati (19-7, 7-6) has lost three of its last four games with poor shooting. The Bearcats shot only 31.5 percent from the field against Georgetown and went 4 of 24 behind the arc. JaQuon Parker led with 15 points. 

 

 

The Hoyas had lost their last four against the Bearcats and hadn't won in Cincinnati since the 2006-07 season. They've won nine of their last 10 overall.
