Washington • Georgetown held Towson scoreless over the final 4 1/2 minutes, and the No. 15 Hoyas won their second home clankfest in a row, recovering from a 17-point first half to beat Towson 46-40 on Saturday.

Greg Whittington scored 11 points, while Mikael Hopkins and Otto Porter had 10 apiece for the Hoyas (7-1), who shot 17 percent in the first half and 29 percent for the game. Georgetown won with defense. It forced 22 turnovers and pulled away — if it could be called that — with a 4-0 game-ending run.

Georgetown transfer Jerrelle Benimon had 11 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Tigers (4-5), who are rebuilding with only three scholarship players from last season's 1-31 team.

When Georgetown set the school record for scoring futility in the shot clock era with a 37-36 over Tennessee on Nov. 30, coach John Thompson III said he hadn't been a part of a game like it since he was 8 years old. He now can say he's seen two in eight days. —
