MILWAUKEE | Angel Robinson’s three-point play gave Marquette the lead with 1:07 remaining, and the Golden Eagles went on to knock off No. 17 Georgetown 52-45 on Wednesday night.

Robinson scored 20 points for the Golden Eagles (13-7, 4-3 Big East), who won despite committing a season-high 30 turnovers.

Sugar Rodgers scored 23 points for the Hoyas (17-3, 6-1), who came into Wednesday’s game on a 16-game winning streak. Georgetown hadn’t lost since falling to Dayton on Nov. 20.

With Marquette trailing by two, Robinson hit a jumper and was fouled, converting the free throw to give the Golden Eagles a 44-43 lead. Georgetown was called for traveling twice in the final minute as Marquette extended its advantage on free throws.

It was a return to action for Georgetown sophomore forward Tia McBride and senior guard Kenya Kirkland, who were suspended for their roles in a pregame scuffle with Louisville on Jan. 16.
