From combined dispatches

Georgetown 78, No. 22 Syracuse 71

Kieraah Marlow scored 19 points, Shanice Fuller added 16 and the Hoyas (12-9, 2-6 Big East) beat the Orange (17-4, 5-3) yesterday at McDonough Arena for their first win against a ranked opponent in four years.

Monica Fuller had 13 points and Aminata Diop added 11 for Georgetown, whose last win against an opponent in the Associated Press’ Top 25 came on Jan. 17, 2004, over No. 23 Virginia Tech.

Syracuse was playing its third game since earning its first Top 25 ranking in the program’s history. It was the Orange’s first loss this season to a team not currently ranked.

Nicole Michael led Syracuse with 16 points. Fantasia Goodwin had 14, and Vaida Sipaviciute and Vionca Murray had 11 points each.

Georgetown led most of the game, and never trailed in the final 10 minutes.

Syracuse played much of the second half without Chandrea Jones, the team’s leading scorer. Jones was whistled for her fourth foul with 16:38 left in the game. The foul sent her to the bench for about 12 minutes. She finished with nine points, seven in the final three minutes.

Georgetown showed Syracuse it would be a tough matchup early. Georgetown used a 12-0 run to take a nine-point lead with 7½ minutes left in the first half, but Syracuse tied it 29-all at halftime.

No. 16 George Washington 73, Duquesne 65

PITTSBURGH — Kimberly Beck scored 19 points and the Colonials (18-4, 6-1 A-10) gave coach Joe McKeown his 500th career victory, relying on two pivotal first-half runs to beat the Dukes (11-11, 2-5).

McKeown, George Washington’s coach since 1989, is 432-151 in 19 seasons at the school after winning 68 games in three seasons at New Mexico State. McKeown is the 34th Division I coach with 500 or more victories.

McKeown broke out of a tie with former Maryland coach Chris Weller and now has the most Division I women’s coaching victories in the DC Metro area.
