The Georgetown Hoyas improved their record with a pair of wins this week, but did not improve their standing in either of the polls. The 9-1 Hoyas held steady at No. 15 in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and No. 21 in the USA Today Coaches' Top 25 Poll.

Georgetown started the week with an 89-53 victory over the Longwood Lancers. Sophomore Otto Porter Jr. led the way, setting career-highs with 22 points and seven assists. He added four rebounds and four steals.

On Saturday, the Hoyas once again collected an easy home victory, beating the Western Carolina Catamounts, 81-68, behind a double-double from Greg Whittington. The sophomore scored a career-high 25 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

The Hoyas have now won six straight games and have yet to lose at home. Georgetown's only loss of the season came, in overtime, to the formerly-No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers who dropped to No. 6 in both polls this week after their first loss.

Georgetown has a week off before returning to the court on Saturday, Dec. 22, against American University. Tip-off at the Verizon Center is scheduled for noon ET.
