    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Monica McNutt had 17 points and a career-high 11 rebounds to record her first double-double of the season and lead Georgetown (No. 17 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) past Providence 49-45 on Saturday.

    It was the Hoyas' ninth straight win over the Friars.

    Georgetown (14-4, 2-2 Big East Conference) won despite a season-low four points from Sugar Rogers, last year's Big East freshman of the Year.

    Miranda Tate scored 15 points, including three 3-pointers, for Providence (8-8, 1-3) before leaving in the second half with an ankle injury.

    Georgetown led by 11 points in the second half after McNutt's 3-pointer with 15:39 remaining put her over the 1,000-point mark for her career. The Friars cut it to four points on a 3-pointer from Lola Wells with 17 seconds remaining.

    Georgetown committed 25 turnovers but held Providence to 29 percent shooting.

    It was a one-point game midway through the first half, but the Friars went scoreless for a 5:45 span and watched Georgetown open a 21-13 lead.

    The Hoyas led 27-19 at the half despite getting just three points on 1-of-7 shooting from Rogers, who entered the game second in the conference with an average of 19 points per game.
