Syracuse, N.Y. • Otto Porter scored a career-high 33 points and No. 11 Georgetown beat No. 8 Syracuse 57-46 on Saturday, putting an emphatic stamp on the impending end of an era before an imposing Orange crowd.

Thirty-three years after the Hoyas halted Syracuse's 57-game home winning streak at Manley Field House, Porter added his name to the pantheon of stars who made this rivalry scintillating over the years.

His incredible play stopped the Orange's 38-game winning streak in the Carrier Dome, the longest in Division I, and it came in front of a disappointed record crowd of 35,012, the largest ever to see a college basketball on campus. It was the fewest points scored by Syracuse in the Carrier Dome.

It was the final game between Georgetown and Syracuse in the Carrier Dome as members of the conference — the Orange are leaving the Big East in July to join the Atlantic Coast Conference.
