Jason Clark scored 26 points and Hollis Thompson's tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than 30 seconds left capped a comeback from a 17-point deficit, helping No. 9 Georgetown beat No. 20 Marquette 73-70 on Wednesday night. The Hoyas (13-1, 3-0 Big East) ran their winning streak to 11 games, their longest in five years. They got 16 points from Thompson, 13 from Henry Sims, and key contributions from four freshmen who played significant minutes in the second half. Marquette (12-3, 1-1) lost for the third time in five games, despite 18 points from Darius Johnson-Odom, 17 from Jae Crowder, and 16 from Todd Mayo. The Golden Eagles led 43-29 at halftime and stretched that to 56-39 on Mayo's 3-pointer with 13:10 left. But Clark brought Georgetown back, making 6 of 7 shots in the second half, when he scored 18 points.
