Georgetown topples No. 8 West Va.
Rodgers drops 30 points in win for Hoyas
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON -- Sugar Rodgers scored 30 points, including a falling-down driving layup with 50 seconds to play, as No. 19 Georgetown topped No. 8 West Virginia 65-60 Tuesday night for the Hoyas' second win over a top-10 team this season.
Rodgers' acrobatic shot gave Georgetown the lead for good, capping a turnover-filled, come-from-behind win for the Hoyas (16-5, 4-3 Big East), who earlier this year topped then-No. 4 Tennessee.
The Hoyas won despite committing 28 turnovers, although that made them only marginally more careless than the Mountaineers (19-2, 5-2), who had 23 in a game that had more total turnovers (51) than made field goals (40). Georgetown won by outrebounding West Virginia 32-17 and overcoming an eight-point deficit in the final 8:40.
