MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Ta’Shauna “Sugar” Rodgers and Tia Magee both scored 17 points to lead No. 20 Georgetown to a 64-54 victory over West Virginia on Tuesday night.
Christal Caldwell had 25 points and nine rebounds for West Virginia, one rebound short of extending her double-double streak to eight games.
The Mountaineers (14-6, 4-3 Big East) led by one point at halftime but Georgetown (16-5, 5-3) pulled away with a 16-4 run in middle of the second half.
The Hoyas traded baskets with the Mountaineers for the first 7 minutes of the second half, and West Virginia even appeared to grab the momentum when Taylor Palmer hit a 3-pointer from the wing with 12:50 to go.
But Magee’s layup with 8:52 left gave the Hoyas the lead for good, and Georgetown extended it to as many as 13 points.
