Rutgers 71 Georgetown 68.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach John Thompson III, Greg Monroe & Austin Freeman:

Mike Rosario lept up on a platform in front of the Rutgers student section and began to shimmy, doing a two step shake in front of the Scarlet Knights fans jumping up and down. Three weeks and a day after being embarrassed by 25 in Washington, DC, Rosario's team defeated Georgetown by three.

The last time Rutgers beat a squad ranked as high as the #8 Hoyas was in 1982, when the Scarlet Knights clipped #6 West Virginia by 10.

Greg Monroe had rallied Georgetown to a 66-65 lead with :51 left on a drop step move against Hamaday Ndiaye. Monroe finished with 19 points, eight rebounds, six assists, four blocks and five turnovers.

Mike Rosario, who shot 3-16 on the day, missed a step back jumper from behind the free throw line, but Dane Miller raced in from the wing for an acrobatic tip follow that gave the Scarlet Knights a one point edge with 19 seconds to play.

The Hoyas pushed the ball, with head coach John Thompson III telling his team that he would call time out if he did not like what he saw. A two-on-one advantage for Chris Wright and Hollis Thompson developed on the far side of the arc, letting Wright spring open for a clear three off the left wing that he was unable to knock down.

Wright finished with six points and Georgetown dropped to 2-6 this season when Wright fails to reach double figures.

The two teams traded a pair of free throws before Austin Freeman's three point shot from the top of the arc was long at the buzzer and the spontaneous dance party broke out.

Jonathan Mitchell had a career high 24 points for Rutgers. Miller added 13 points and 10 boards for his second career double-double.
