The Golden Eagles opened Big East play with an 82-76 overtime triumph over Connecticut on Tuesday as a 5-point favorite. They needed a 25-footer from Junior Cadougan at the buzzer of regulation to force overtime. Porter had a strong performance versus the Golden Eagles last season, recording 19 points before fouling out in an 83-69 defeat. Porter paces this season's Hoyas in both points (13.2) and rebounds (7.7) while sharing the lead in assists (3.2) with Nate Lubick. The x-factor for Georgetown will be 6-foot-9 guard Greg Whittington, who averages 12.5ppg, but has been shooting 62% in his last two games. Defensively, they are still one of the best teams in the nation as they average allowing just 54.7ppg.
