WASHINGTON – Sugar Rodgers scored 24 points and No. 17 Georgetown held seventh-ranked Miami to 21 percent shooting in a 71-46 rout Wednesday night.
The Hoyas (10-2) limited the nation's highest-scoring team to its smallest output of the season. They stifled the Hurricanes (9-2) from the start, going ahead 34-21 at halftime while holding Miami to just one field goal in the last six minutes, and maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the way.
With just over seven minutes remaining, Suriya McGuire hit a 3-pointer to bring Miami within 15. But the Hoyas answered with a 12-0 run, highlighted by Tia Magee's three-point play.
Shenise Johnson led Miami with 10 points, her fewest of the season.
Magee scored 13, Rubylee Wright added 10, and Sydney Wilson grabbed 12 rebounds for Georgetown, which snapped a seven-game losing streak to Miami since 2000.
