No. 15 Hoyas roll at home
Indiana men and Stanford women remain atop their respective polls.
Otto Porter scored a career-high 22 points, added seven assists and four rebounds, and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half of No. 15 Georgetown’s 8953 win over Longwood on Monday night.
The point total was much bigger than the host Hoyas managed in two of their last three wins. They beat Tennessee 37-36 and Towson 46-40 around a 64-41 win over Texas.
Before Porter left the game, Georgetown (8-1) had already built a sizable lead over the Lancers (2-8).
Markel Starks was 4 for 5 from 3-point range and added 17 points for the Hoyas.
Hoosiers top men’s poll again: Indiana is No. 1 for a sixth straight week in The Associated Press college basketball poll.
The Hoosiers are again followed in the Top 25 by Duke, Michigan and Syracuse. The only changes in Monday’s poll is the order, not who’s ranked.
The Hoosiers (9-0) received 44 first-place votes from the 64member national media panel. Duke (9-0) again drew the other No. 1 votes.
Florida and Louisville switched places at fifth and sixth. They were followed by Ohio State, Arizona, Kansas and Illinois.
The Illini (10-0) beat fellow unbeaten Gonzaga on Saturday, moving into the top 10 for the first time since the next-to-last poll of 2005-06. Gonzaga dropped to 14th.
Stanford leads women’s Top 25: The Cardinal (8-0) remains No. 1 in The Associated Press women’s basketball poll, narrowly ahead of Connecticut.
The Cardinal had 22 first-place votes Monday, while UConn (8-0) received 16. Baylor (7-1) got the other two.
Stanford had the week off for exams, while the Huskies beat Maryland and Penn State by 15 points each.
The Lady Bears topped Notre Dame (6-1) by 12 in a rematch of last season’s NCAA championship game.
Duke (8-0) and Notre Dame remain fourth and fifth.
Texas A&M (5-3) returned at No. 23.
