Jason Clark scored 21 points, Otto Porter added 16 and Georgetown's ruthless defense bottled up Belmont's shooters during a 74-59 NCAA tournament win Friday, sending the Hoyas into the next round after early exits the past two years. Henry Sims had 15 points for the third-seeded Hoyas (24-8), who shot 62 percent from the floor and will play No. 11 seed North Carolina State in the third round of the Midwest Regional. Georgetown's previous two seasons ended with embarrassing first-round losses to Virginia Commonwealth and Ohio. The Hoyas weren't going to let that happen a third time to a pesky underdog. The Bruins (27-8) had their 14-game winning streak stopped and fell to 0-5 in NCAA appearances. Blake Jenkins scored 17 to lead Belmont, which went just 10 of 27 on 3-pointers.
