    HANOVER, N.H. -- Sugar Rodgers tied her career-high with 34 points and Georgetown (No. 16 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) ran its winning streak to 10 games with a 65-53 victory over Vermont on Thursday night.

    The Hoyas (11-2) led by seven at the half and by as many as 18 points midway through the second half before Vermont (6-6) cut it to nine with just over two minutes remaining.

    Rodgers, the only Georgetown player to reach double figures, scored her team's final eight points and 10 of the last 11 as the Hoyas won the opening game of the 35th annual Blue Sky Classic, the longest consecutive running women's college basketball tournament in the nation.

    Rubylee Wright added nine points and six assists for Georgetown. Kayla Burchill made six 3-pointers and scored 20 points for Vermont. Lauren Buschmann added 13 points for the Catamounts, who have lost their last five.
