Hoyas find offense vs. overmatched foe

WASHINGTON — Georgetown forward Greg Whittington stole the ball on the perimeter and dribbled up court, slowing slightly once he reached the paint to size up a defender, who was closing on him.

Whittington dunked, anyway.

There was little Longwood could do as No. 15 Georgetown cruised to an 89-53 victory Monday night.

Otto Porter scored a career-high 22, added seven assists and four steals and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half.

The Hoyas (8-1) managed far more points than they did in two of their past three wins. They beat Tennessee 37-36 and Towson 46-40 around a 64-41 win over Texas.

"When you look at that last game, the ball didn't go in, and so you have to fix that," Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. "But most of the looks we got were wide open shots. It wasn't a question of movement within the offense. Our guys just put the ball in the basket a little bit."

Porter went to the bench with 13:46 left, holding his hand to his face. He laughed off the injury after the game.

"I just caught an elbow from my teammate going for the rebound," Porter said.

AP POLL: There were no newcomers. Indiana was No. 1 for a sixth straight week.

Women

P.B. ATLANTIC 68, SAINT LEO 56: The visiting Lions (5-3) committed 20 turnovers and scored their fewest points this season.

AP POLL: Florida State dropped out, along with Nebraska and Iowa State. Texas A&M, South Carolina and West Virginia entered in the final three spots. Stanford remained No. 1, narrowly ahead of Connecticut.
