Talented Porter makes teammates better

Otto Porter Jr. did not play a particularly great game on Thursday. This is not at all to say that the Big East Player of the Year played poorly during top-seeded Georgetown's 62-43 smothering of Cincinnati in the Hoyas first Big East tournament game.

Syracuse had coughed up a 12-point lead down the stretch, and Fair’s poor decision making was the proverbial straw the broke the camel’s back. Surely Georgetown would dominated the Orange in OT. But Fair had a short...
