The Hoyas improved to 4-1 with a 72-50 win over Mount St. Mary's on Saturday at Verizon Center.

In his first full game of the season, he recorded his first double-double of the season, and the fourth of his career, with 18 points and 11 rebounds during the win over UCLA, adding career-highs in assists (5) and blocks (5) while adding three steals. He scored 15 points, had five rebounds and four assists in the loss to Indiana.

On Saturday against the Mount, he scored a game-high 17 points with a game-high 13 rebounds for his fifth career double-double.

Porter earned several preseason honors this season, being named to the watch lists for the Naismith Award and the Wooden Award. He was name an Associated Press preseason honorable mention All-American and was selected to the All-BIG EAST First Team.

Porter finished the 2011-12 season ranked fourth on the team in scoring with 9.7 points per game and led the team in rebounds with 6.8 per game. He appeared in all 33 of GU's games, starting eight times, and led the team in field goal percentage, connecting on 52.5 percent of his shots from the floor. Porter, who averaged 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals, reached double figures in scoring 14 times, had seven double figure rebounding games and recorded three double-doubles.
