Tia Magee records double-double as Hoyas rout Monmouth

WASHINGTON -- Tia Magee had 13 points and 12 rebounds to help Georgetown (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP) beat Monmouth 64-44 on Monday night.

Rubylee Wright and Taylor Brown each added 13 points for Georgetown (3-2), which won consecutive games for the first time this season. Magee led the Hoyas with three of their 10 team steals.

Alexis Canady scored 14 points for the Hawks (0-3), who were held to their lowest point total this season.

Georgetown outrebounded Monmouth 43-32 and forced Monmouth into 21 turnovers to eventually cruise to victory in a game that was at one point tied 34-all.

The Hoyas also made 12 more trips to the foul line than the Hawks, but hit just 11 of 24 free throws.

Georgetown's usual starting guard Sugar Rodgers missed Monday's game with an ankle injury. She is expected to return for the game against Georgia Saturday in Las Vegas.
