WASHINGTON (AP) — D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera scored a career-high 33 points — the most by any Georgetown player this season — and the No. 11 Hoyas moved back into a tie for first place in the Big East with a 90-66 win over DePaul.
Smith-Rivera went 10 for 12 from the field, 8 for 10 from the free-throw line and made 5 of 6 3-pointers, scoring the most points by a Georgetown freshman in John Thompson III’s nine seasons as coach.
Nate Lubick added 15 points, and Jabril Trawick had 13 as the Hoyas pulled away with a 15-4 run at the end of the half. They won their eighth straight on a night when they barely needed marquee player Otto Porter, who scored 11 points and sat out the final 17 minutes after banging his right knee in the first half.
