Juston Moore scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half to lead No. 10 Villanova to a 74-66 victory over Georgetown at the Finn.
Moore missed 8 of 9 field goals in the opening 20 minutes, including all six of his 3-point tries, but made 5 of 7 shots and 2 of 3 from long range after the break.
“Great looks in the first half but they didn’t go in and he stayed confident in the second half,” coach Jay Wright said.
Brandon Slater added 11 and Caleb Daniels and Eric Dixon each had 10 for Villanova (21-6, 14-3 Big East), which has won five in a row.
“We struggled, but we gutted it out,” Wright said.
