Georgetown had three in double figures with senior captain Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) posting the double-double with 14 points and 12 boards.
In the second contest, the Hoyas fell in a last-second heartbreaker to the Lady Hilltoppers from Western Kentucky, 57-55. Both White and freshman center Natalie Butler (Fairfax Station, Va./Lake Braddock) managed double-doubles in the loss.

The Gators are 9-3 overall and have won their last five-consecutive games.
