ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Georgetown's success is all about sharing. Pass the ball on offense to the open man and help out your teammates on defense. It's how the Hoyas win, a style that coach John Thompson III demands."As a group this is how we have to do things all year," Thompson said after the No. 13 Hoyas picked up the defense in the second half and used balanced scoring to beat DePaul 67-50 on Sunday."They are very skilled and do an outstanding job of sharing the ball and being very opportunistic," DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright said. "When you make a mistake, they are going to make a basket."
• Georgetown beat DePaul for the ninth straight time and fifth straight on the road. It was just the Hoyas' third win in their last nine conference road games.
• Georgetown shot 57.1 percent (24 for 42) from the field.
• Chris Wright led the Hoyas with 18 points. He's averaging 24.3 points over his last three games.
• DePaul has lost 13 straight conference home games, and 18 straight games vs. ranked opponents.
