NEW YORK - Otto Porter had 19 points and a season-high 14 rebounds and No. 19 Georgetown broke out of its scoring funk with a 67-51 victory over St. John's on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.

Martel Starks had 17 points for the Hoyas (11-3, 1-2 Big East), who had lost two straight games and scored 48 points in both. There was plenty of offense from them in this game as they continued their great defense in taking a 36-19 halftime lead after being up by as many as 33-10.

Georgetown reached 48 points with 13:36 to play and it had a 21-point lead. The Hoyas' biggest lead of the game was 26 points.
