Hoyas Defeat Rutgers in Final Seconds (photos)
Otto Porter scored the final six points helping the 10th ranked Georgetown Hoyas men’s basketball team avoid an upset by the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a defensive battle at the Verizon Center on Saturday, January 21, 2012. The Hoyas improved their record to 16-3. Porter’s pair of free throws with 8.5 seconds left sealed the victory. The Hoyas made only 12 field goals, which is tied for the fewest in a college basketball victory this season. The Scarlet Knights had one final chance, but freshman guard Eli Carter’s jumper hit the back of the rim and bounced out as a time expired.
