WASHINGTON (AP) - Joshua Smith had 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown survived a 12-minute field goal drought in the second half Tuesday night in a 65-59 win over Marquette.

Smith had seven offensive boards, and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 15 points and Jabril Trawick 13 points for the Hoyas (10-4, 2-1 Big East) in their first game since dropping out of the AP Top 25. Georgetown has won two straight after a loss at Xavier to open conference play.

Luke Fischer battled foul trouble to go 6-for-6 from the field and score 13 points for the Golden Eagles (9-6, 1-2). Matt Carlino had 16 points but went 2-for-8 from 3-point range.

Georgetown led 42-31 early in the second half, but the Hoyas stopped making buckets and relied on free throws as the lead dwindled.
