Hoyas Top WVU in NIT

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera had a season-high 32 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown topped West Virginia 77-65 Tuesday night in a cozy matchup of former conference rivals in the first round of the NIT.

Markel Starks added 14 points, and Jabril Trawick scored 12 for the Hoyas (18-14), who pulled away in the second half in the cramped confines of Georgetown's 2,500-seat practice gym. The game was played on campus because the circus is in town, occupying the Hoyas' usual home court, the Verizon Center.

Juwan Staten scored 23 points to lead the Mountaineers (17-16), who had a five-game winning streak over the Hoyas come to an end. The schools hadn't met since West Virginia left the Big East to join the BIG 12 in 2012.

The Hoyas will visit Florida State in the second round. The Seminoles beat Florida Gulf Coast on Tuesday.
