The Georgetown Hoyas defeated the Duquesne Dukes, 61-55, on Sunday at the Verizon Center in the Legends Classic.

The Hoyas had to play most of the game without star forward Otto Porter who was poked in the eye in the first half and left the game. Porter only played seven minutes, going 0-for-2 from the floor, with one rebound and one assist. The good news for the Hoyas were that they were able to pick up a win in a game they basically played without Porter.

Neither team shot well overall in the first half but Georgetown held a 27-21 lead at the break due to hot three-point shooting (5-for-10). The Hoyas went cold from behind the arc in the second half, hitting just one of their six attempts, and the Dukes got back into the game as Sean Johnson and Jerry Jones heated up.

D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera led Georgetown with 19 points. Greg Whittington was two points shy of a double-double for the Hoyas with eight points and 14 rebounds. Sean Johnson scored 21 points for Duquesne to lead all scorers. Jones scored all 10 of his points in the second half for the Dukes.

Georgetown's next game will be on Wednesday when it hosts the Liberty Flames.
