Garrett’s free throws end DePaul’s 10-game losing streak
WASHINGTON (AP) — Billy Garrett made two free throws with 0.2 seconds left and DePaul beat Georgetown 67-65 on Wednesday night to snap a 10-game losing streak.
DePaul’s Eli Cain made a steal and fed Tre’Darius McCallum for a fastbreak basket to tie the game at 65 before Jessie Govan airballed a 3-pointer out of bounds for Georgetown, setting up Garrett’s full-court sprint to the basket where he was fouled by Akoy Agau.
Garrett led by the Blue Demons (9-19, 2-13 Big East) with 15 points. R.J. Curington added 14 points and McCallum 13.
Govan scored 18 points, Rodney Pryor 14 and Marcus Derrickson 11 for the Hoyas (14-14, 5-10), who had won six straight games in the series, including a 76-73 victory on Jan. 31.
Georgetown built a 14-point lead in the first half but DePaul rallied to tie it at 36 before Curington hit a 3-pointer with a minute to go for a 39-36 lead at the break. The Blue Demons took their largest lead of seven early in the second half.
