NEW YORK (AP) – Otto Porter had 14 points and eight rebounds to lead No. 15 Georgetown to a 64-41 victory over Texas in the opener of the Jimmy V Classic on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
Nate Lubick added 13 points and Markel Starks had 11 for the Hoyas, who led by 13 at halftime. The lead grew to 23 and was never less than eight in the second half.
The Hoyas (6-1), whose only loss this season was to No. 1 Indiana in overtime, scored the first nine points of the game, the last four from Lubick on layups.
Sheldon McClellan had 12 points to lead the Longhorns (5-3), who had their lowest point total under coach Rick Barnes, who took over for the 1998-99 season. Texas had won three straight after losing two in a row.
