No. 7 GEORGETOWN 79, CONNECTICUT 78, 2 OT

STORRS, Conn. — Otto Porter Jr.’s layup with 9.5 seconds remaining in the second overtime gave Georgetown a wild victory over Connecticut, the Hoyas’ 10th straight win and first-ever at Gampel Pavilion.

Porter scored 21 of his 22 points after halftime to help Georgetown (22-4, 12-3 Big East) stay in first place in the conference. The Hoyas had a 12-point lead with 4:36 to go in regulation.

In the final 2:03 of the second overtime Georgetown overcame a seven-point deficit, improving to 1-3 in Connecticut’s 23-year-old on-campus arena. The Huskies (19-8, 9-6) play most of their big conference games at the XL Center in Hartford.

Markel Starks had 19 points for Georgetown, while D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 14.

DeAndre Daniels had 25 points and 10 rebounds for the Huskies.

No. 15 OKLAHOMA STATE 64, TCU 47

FORT WORTH, Texas — Le’Bryan Nash scored a career-high 28 points, Marcus Smart had a strong all-around game not far from the high school where he won two state championships, and Oklahoma State beat offensively challenged TCU.

Nash had the first two baskets in an 18-1 run that bridged the first and second halves and put the Cowboys (21-6, 11-4 Big 12) in control for good.

Smart, a freshman who won back-to-back state titles at Flower Mound Marcus High School, had nine points, five assists and three steals — all categories in which he is among the Big 12 leaders.

Kyan Anderson led the Horned Frogs with 15 points. TCU (10-18, 1-14), one of the lowest-scoring teams in the country, missed 12 straight shots while going more than 10 minutes without a field goal and ended up shooting 27 percent.

No. 18 SAINT LOUIS 70, SAINT JOSEPH’S 53

ST. LOUIS — Dwayne Evans had 21 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in perhaps his most complete effort of the season, helping Saint Louis run its winning streak to 10 games with a victory over Saint Joseph’s.

Rob Loe had 11 points and six rebounds and Mike McCall Jr. contributed 10 points, five assists and four rebounds for the balanced Billikens (22-5, 11-2 Atlantic 10), who held Saint Joseph’s (15-11, 6-7) to a season-worst 32.7 percent shooting.

Saint Louis cracked the Top 25 this week for the first time this season after beating a pair of ranked opponents on the road. The Billikens have won by double digits eight times during their winning streak.

Ronald Roberts had a season-best 25 points for Saint Joseph’s, which has lost four of six.
