WASHINGTON (AP) -Jonathan Wallace, fouled in the backcourt by Corey Stokes with one-tenth of a second remaining, sank both free throws to give the No. 8 Georgetown Hoyas a 55-53 victory Monday night, their first home win over the Villanova Wildcats in more than a decade.
Wallace came up with the loose ball - a rarity on a night when Georgetown was outhustled and outrebounded - in a mad scramble after Scottie Reynolds turned the ball over in traffic while Villanova was holding for the last shot. Wallace started to dribble and was slightly bumped by Stokes, who became the fourth player to foul out in a game that was marred by 48 fouls.
Wallace scored 15 points for the Hoyas (20-3, 10-2 Big East), who have won seven of eight and bounced back from a loss at Louisville on Saturday. Georgetown blew a 12-point second-half lead and scored only two field goals over the final eight minutes.
Reynolds led Villanova (14-9, 4-7) with 24 points, but he went only 1-for-6 from the field in the second half. Still, his night wasn't nearly as bad as that of teammate Corey Fisher, who went 1-for-16 for the game.
