Georgetown stops Marquette

Published On: Feb 11 2013 08:26:08 PM CST

WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Otto Porter scored 11 of his 21 points after a momentum-shifting technical foul on Marquette coach Buzz Williams, and No. 15 Georgetown won a stop-and-start game of turnovers and whistles Monday night, beating the 18th-ranked Golden Eagles 63-55 to move into a tie for second in the Big East.

Porter scored Georgetown's next six points after Williams was whistled while arguing an out-of-bounds call along the baseline with 12:13 to play.

The Golden Eagles had cut a 10-point halftime deficit to three, but the Hoyas went on an 8-1 run immediately after the technical, and Marquette didn't get closer than eight points the rest of the way.

Georgetown scored 24 points off Marquette's 19 turnovers, and Markel Starks added 16 points for the Hoyas (18-4, 8-3 Big East), who won their sixth straight and avenged a 49-48 loss at Marquette on Jan. 5.

Jamil Wilson scored 13 points to lead the Golden Eagles (17-6, 8-3).
