ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Jason Clark scored a career-high 31 points and No. 10 Georgetown dominated the rebounding in an 83-75 victory over DePaul on Tuesday night.
The Hoyas (15-3, 5-2 Big East) outrebounded DePaul 47-25 and consistently worked inside for second shots. Henry Sims added 16 points and Otto Porter had 15 rebounds for Georgetown.
Clark made 11 of 14 shots from the field, including 5 of 7 from behind the 3-point line.
Cleveland Melvin scored 19 points and Moses Morgan had 17, including five 3-pointers, for the Blue Demons (10-8, 1-5), who lost their fourth straight.
Clark’s dunk on a break with 6:29 left gave the Hoyas a 14-point lead, but DePaul kept scrapping on defense and cut it to seven on a jumper by Morgan with 2:44 left. But Clark made two free throws and Jabril Trawick had a three-point play for the Hoyas.
