    PITTSBURGH -- Sugar Rodgers scored 28 points to lead Georgetown (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 19 AP) over Pittsburgh 82-54 on Wednesday night in the Big East opener for both teams.

    The Hoyas (8-2, 1-0) used aggressive defense to run away from the Panthers (4-5, 0-1) early. Georgetown went on a 19-1 spurt to take a 26-7 lead with 8:38 left in the first half. The Panthers' only point in that span of 8:43 came on Leeza Burdgess' free throw.

    Pitt shot 6 of 34 in the first half and 26.7 percent for the game.

    Taylor Brown and Tia Magee each added 12 points for the Hoyas, with Magee pulling down seven rebounds.

    Asia Logan led Pitt with 15 points, while Brianna Kiesel had 11 and Burdgess scored 10.
