Georgetown beats No. 24 Notre Dame 63-47

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Otto Porter scored 19 points to lead Georgetown to a 63-47 victory over No. 24 Notre Dame on Monday night, the Fighting Irish's third loss in four games.
 
   It was a dismal night for Notre Dame's offense, which recorded season lows in points scored, field goal percentage (35 percent) and assists (11).
 
   The Irish (15-4, 3-3 Big East) went on long stretches without scoring in both halves, while Georgetown (13-4, 3-3) shot 53 percent from the field.
 
   It was Notre Dame's third Big East home loss over their past 24 conference home games. The game was reminiscent of last season's 59-41 win by Georgetown over the Irish in Washington, when the Hoyas held Notre Dame to its lowest point total in nearly four years by limiting the Irish to 33 percent shooting.
 
   Jerian Grant led Notre Dame with 13 points while Pat Connaughton had 12 points and Jack Cooley added 10 points with 10 rebounds.
 
   Notre Dame set the tone with their offensive woes early. The Hoyas got off to a 10-4 run over the first 4:44 of the game, fueled by 3s from Porter and Jabril Trawick, while the Irish hit just one of their first five field goal attempts. Notre Dame scored only eight points over the first 10 minutes, hitting just three of their first 10 shots from the field.
 
   Cooley appeared frustrated early, hitting just one of his first four attempts.
 
   Notre Dame appeared poised to overcome big deficits twice in the game.
 
   Georgetown went cold late in the first half, hitting just 3 of 10 shots over a 6-minute span that allowed the Irish to pull within 25-21. But after coach John Thompson III called a timeout with 4:01 to play in the half, Markel Starks hit a baseline jumper to make it 27-21. The Hoyas then finished the half on a 7-0 run.
 
   Notre Dame came into the second half with energy, reeling off a 10-0 run early to cut the margin to 40-37. But they never got closer than that, as the Hoyas went on an 18-0 spurt and put the game out of reach.
 
   During that stretch, Notre Dame reserve freshman guard Cameron Biedscheid, shooting 43 percent on the season, missed two 3-pointers, a jumper and a layup.
 
   Georgetown outhustled Notre Dame to loose balls on both ends of the court and outrebounded the Irish 35-24.
