WASHINGTON - Georgetown University sophomore men's basketball player D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera (Indianapolis, Ind./North Central/Oak Hill) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday after his performance in a pair of games last week.

Smith-Rivera and the Hoyas won their second-straight BIG EAST Conference with a 77-60 decision over St. John's on Saturday. It was the team's ninth win in the last 10 games as Georgetown improved to 10-3 overall and 2-0 in the BIG EAST.

Smith-Rivera scored a season-high 31 points, connecting on 9-of-12 from the floor and hitting a career-high six three-pointers as the Hoyas hit 56.1 percent of their shots from the floor (23-of-41) and were 69.2 percent from three-point land (9-of-13).

In two games last week, Smith-Rivera averaged 21.5 points and 7.0 rebounds, while shooting 52.0 percent from the floor (13-of-20) and 61.5 percent from three-point land (8-of-13).

Earlier in the week, he scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds in a 61-54 win over DePaul.

Smith-Rivera leads the team in scoring with 17.1 points per game, which ranks sixth in the BIG EAST, is third on the team with 4.8 rebounds and second with 3.1 assists per game.

Georgetown is back on the road for the next three games, starting on Wednesday, Jan. 8, visiting BIG EAST rival Providence for the first league road games of the season. Tip-off at the Dunkin' Donuts Center is slated for 7 p.m. The game will be shown live on Fox Sports 1 and can be heard locally on ESPN 980 AM.
