    Tia Magee's double-double paces Georgetown rout

    Associated Press

    WASHINGTON -- Tia Magee notched a double-double, scoring 17 points and pulling down 10 rebounds, to lead Georgetown (No. 14 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) past Providence 66-39 on Saturday.

    Sugar Rodgers added 14 points for the Hoyas (21-6, 10-4 Big East), who have lost just once in five February games -- an 80-38 drubbing at the hands of No. 2 Connecticut on Feb. 11.

    This one wasn't a complete rout, at least in the first half. The teams were close for most of the first 20 minutes, with the Hoyas taking a six-point lead into the locker room.

    A Rodgers layup sparked a 10-0 run to open the second half, though, and Georgetown cruised from there. The Hoyas outscored the Friars 41-20 in the second half.

    Georgetown outshot Providence (13-14, 5-9), who didn't have a single player in double figures, 40.7 percent (22 of 54) to 23.1 percent (12 of 52) from the floor.
