WASHINGTON (AP, abc24.com) - Jason Clark scored 18 points and Hollis Thompson added 17 as No. 16 Georgetown beat Memphis 70-59 Thursday night.
Georgetown (10-1) extended its winning streak to eight games. The Hoyas held the lead for the entire game and opened the margin to as much as 20 points before a late surge by Memphis, although the Tigers were unable to complete the comeback.
Chris Crawford scored 17 and Will Barton had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Memphis, which has lost three of its last four games.
The teams were playing a rare regular-season, non-conference rematch. Georgetown, unranked at the time, defeated then-No. 8 Memphis 91-88 in overtime in the fifth-place game of the Maui Invitational on Nov. 23. The roles were reversed for this contest, with the Hoyas holding the national ranking.
