Derrickson's late 3 gives Hoyas win over Seton Hall

Marcus Derrickson scored 22 points, grabbed a career-best 18 rebounds and hit the game-winning 3-pointer on Saturday as Georgetown beat Seton Hall 83-80.

Derrickson got an open look on a deep 3 near the end of the shot clock and buried it with 4.2 seconds left:

 He was also fouled on the close out by Khadeen Carrington but missed the foul shot. Myles Powell, who finished with 25 points for the Pirates, missed a 3-point attempt as time ran out.

Jamorko Pickett added 18 points and Jessie Govan scored 11 for the Hoyas (14-10, 4-9 Big East), who had a 17-point lead from early in the second half erased by the six-minute mark.

Angel Delgado's layup with 5:36 to play capped a 10-0 run and gave Seton Hall (17-8, 6-6) its first lead of the game at 69-67.

Desi Rodriguez added 24 points and Delgado scored 12 for the Pirates.

Villanova crushes Georgetown for worst Hoyas loss in 40 years

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Top-ranked Villanova led by as many as 44 points -- 44! -- and gave Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing a rude welcome back to the schools' rivalry, handing the Hoyas their worst loss in more than 40 years, 88-56 on Wednesday night.

Jalen Brunson led the way with 18 points and seven assists for Villanova (17-1, 5-1 Big East), which finished 17 for 33 on 3s, while Georgetown went 4 for 15.

Mikal Bridges scored 17 for the Wildcats, winners of seven consecutive games against the Hoyas, Villanova's longest streak in a series that dates to 1922.

The last time Ewing faced Villanova in any capacity was in the last game of his college playing career at Georgetown, a surprising 66-64 victory for the underdog Wildcats in the 1985 NCAA championship game. It was quite clear, quite quickly, on Wednesday that there would be no such tight outcome --nor any chance of an upset by Georgetown (12-6, 2-5).

This is Ewing's first season as a head coach at any level, and he opted to go with an easy-as-can-be non-conference schedule to try to build his players' confidence. Now that league play is underway, especially against a foe like Villanova, the gap between the Hoyas and the best teams is obvious.

It was 42-20 at halftime, and Georgetown to that point had more turnovers (nine) than made baskets, shooting 8 for 26, including 0 for 8 on 3s.

Villanova just kept pushing the margin after the break, going up by 30, then 40, and then reaching the apex at 88-44 on a layup by Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree with about 3 minutes remaining. Less than a minute later, Villanova coach Jay Wright finally sent on the subs and pulled any remaining starters.
