Georgetown stayed perfect at Verizon Center on Monday night with a 36-point drubbing of Longwood.

The Georgetown Hoyas took care of business on Monday night, overwhelming Longwood for an 89-53 win to remain undefeated at home. Georgetown is now 8-1 on the season.

With a comfortable lead for most of the game, the Hoyas spread it around on the offensive end and got contributions from 11 different players. Otto Porter and Markel Starks, however, did most of the damage and were the only two Georgetown players to reach double figures. Porter's strong first month of the season continued against the Lancers, as he posted 22 points, a season-high for the Hoyas' leading scorer. Porter, who's one of the country's most complete players, also had seven assists and four steals.

Starks, the upperclassman leader at point guard, added 17 points from the backcourt. Starks was also part of a a defensive effort that constantly harassed an overmatched Longwood team on the defensive end. Georgetown tallied 13 steals and forced 25 turnovers to run away with the 36-point win. John Thompson III's club has held their opponent under 60 points in seven of their nine games this season.

With the semester coming to a close, the Hoyas have just two non-conference games left on the schedule before starting Big East play in January. Georgetown will now host Western Carolina on Saturday at Verizon Center.
