Rutgers Vs. Georgetown Final Score: Otto Porter Steps Up As Hoyas Hold On, 52-50

The Georgetown Hoyas played one of their worst games of the season and still came away with a victory. They trailed unranked Rutgers late at home, but rallied for a 52-50 win thanks to freshman Otto Porter, who scored the final six points of the game, and stifling defense late.

The Hoyas trailed by five points with two and a half minutes remaining after an Eli Carter three-pointer, but rallied to take the lead. Henry Sims hit two free throws, and Porter scored four points, two on a fast-break layup and two on a leaner to tie the game with just over a minute remaining. The Hoyas forced a Rutgers miss on the next possession and got two free throws from Porter after he was fouled off the ball to take the lead with 8.5 seconds left. Rutgers' last chance ended when Carter missed a runner at the buzzer.

Georgetown won despite shooting just 29 percent from the field, including 4-20 from Sims, Jason Clark and Hollis Thompson.
