Otto Porter Jr.'s layup with 9.5 seconds remaining in the second overtime gave No. 7 Georgetown a 79-78 victory over Connecticut on Wednesday night, the Hoyas' 10th straight win and first-ever at Gampel Pavilion.

Porter scored 21 of his 22 points after halftime in a wild game that saw Georgetown (22-4, 12-3 Big East) stay in first place in the conference. The Hoyas had a 12-point lead with 4:36 to go in regulation.

In the final 2:03 of the second overtime Georgetown overcame a seven-point deficit, improving to 1-3 in Connecticut's 23-year-old on-campus arena. The Huskies (19-8, 9-6) play most of their big conference games at the XL Center in Hartford.

This was a memorable visit for a team that, along with Syracuse, has to be considered the Huskies' biggest rival in the Big East, which is facing incredible changes in the coming years.
