NEW YORK - Otto Porter Jr. scored 18 points and fifth-ranked Georgetown advanced to the Big East semifinals by pulling away from Cincinnati for a 62-43 victory Thursday. Markel Starks had 14 points and reserve D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 13, including a tiebreaking three-pointer that sparked a game-turning run for the top-seeded Hoyas (25-5). Georgetown, looking to land a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, squandered an early 16-point cushion and fell behind briefly in the second half before clamping down with its signature defense.

Georgetown spent two days trying to escape from snowbound Washington. Then the Hoyas really got buried. Scoring star Allen Iverson was held to 12 points and host Pittsburgh hit six three-pointers during a decisive 31-6 run to upset the fifth-ranked Hoyas, 75-56, last night. Pitt (7-3, 2-1 Big East) hadn't beaten a team as highly rated as Georgetown since a 99-91 victory over No. 3 Oklahoma in 1988-89. "Our defense has been strong all year, and the only thing we haven't been doing well is shooting," Pitt coach Ralph Willard said.

For his next trick, Charles Smith will lock himself into a steamer trunk, have it lowered into the water, then try to escape. When Georgetown needed a touch of Houdini yesterday, coach John Thompson went searching for Smith, and the slender, 6-1 senior guard bailed the Hoyas out of another ticklish situation. Smith, who vanished Friday night in Georgetown's one-point victory over Princeton, rematerialized and scored 28 of his 34 points in the second half as the No. 1-seeded Hoyas rallied to defeat Notre Dame, 81-74, in a second-round East Regional game.

Georgetown was at its worst at the free throw line and tied a Big East Tournament record for turnovers. So the Hoyas went to a power dunk on a fast break to get an important win. Wesley Wilson's slam with 3.8 seconds to play gave Georgetown a 68-67 victory over Providence in yesterday's first-round game at Madison Square Garden in New York. Wilson's only basket in the final 10 minutes came on a nice pass from freshman Drew Hall. It allowed the Hoyas (19-10) to move into the quarterfinals against No. 20 Miami (23-6)

Big East commissioner Dave Gavitt has been out of coaching for eight years, but he still knows something about recruiting. After Danny Manning, Kansas' All-America forward, put on a sparkling performance against the Soviets in a preseason exhibition, Gavitt began recruiting the versatile 6-11 junior for the 1988 Olympics. Gavitt, the 1980 Olympic coach, urged Manning to stay in school another year, and suggested that Manning and Navy's David Robinson could be the cornerstones of the U.S. team in Seoul, South Korea.

It was supposed to be a dress rehearsal, but the curtain almost fell on Georgetown in the first act of this already wild and crazy NCAA Basketball Tournament. The No. 2-ranked Hoyas squeezed out a 50-49 victory over Princeton's 16th- seeded Ivy League champions last night in the first round of the East Regional at the Providence Civic Center. Georgetown (27-4), the Big East champion and the No. 1 seed in the region, needed a monster effort from 6-10 freshman phenom Alonzo Mourning to stay alive.

Two of Delaware County's better high school athletes have announced their college plans. Brian Fili, Upper Darby's three-sport star, made an oral commitment yesterday to pitch for Villanova's baseball team next season. The 5-foot, 7-inch lefthander, who is considered one of the three top pitchers in the area, chose the Wildcats over East Carolina, Richmond and Siena. This spring, Fili is 2-1 with a 1.00 ERA. Fili set school records of 3,026 total yards and 43 touchdowns in two seasons for the Royals' football team and averaged 10 points a game as a starting guard for the Royals' basketball team last season.

Barring a twist of fate, the Big East outdoor track and field championships that open today at Villanova should prove to be a rerun of the conference indoor meet contested three months ago. As their rivals assuredly remember, the Big East under cover was won by Georgetown and Villanova, with elegant performances and remarkable ease. In the men's competition, the Hoyas rampaged their way to their second team title in two seasons by scoring 149 1/2 points, a Big East record.

SENIOR HENRY Sims and freshman Otto Porter each scored 20 points to lead No. 13 Georgetown to a 64-52 victory over Pittsburgh in one of four second-round Big East Tournament games at Madison Square Garden in New York yesterday. Sims grabbed 13 rebounds for the fifth-seeded Hoyas (23-7). Ashton Gibbs had 14 points for the 13th-seeded Panthers (17-16). Pitt needed to win the Big East to keep alive its string of 10 straight NCAA Tournament appearance. "Yeah, it's tough," said Pitt's Nasir Robinson, who starred at Chester High.

On paper, Parkway looked like a contender. Then the Hoyas went a few rounds with the champ and discovered that they were simply sparring partners. Frankford, the Public League's defending titlist, warmed up for its toughest week since the start of the league season by beating Parkway, 73-49, at home Thursday afternoon. The Hoyas, unbeaten in the Public League before Thursday, might have expected a better showing, but they rarely laid a glove on the Pioneers. A trio of 3-pointers helped Parkway (4-1 league, 9-6 overall)

HERB MAGEE again will try to make history today, as Philadelphia University (14-6) hosts Post (9-11) at 4 p.m. in the Gallagher Athletic Center at the intersection of Henry Avenue and Schoolhouse Lane in East Falls. Magee is trying to become the second men's coach in NCAA basketball to reach 1,000 wins. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, a fellow Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer, got there on Jan. 18 when the Blue Devils beat St. John's at Madison Square Garden. Magee's first chance to join him ended in a 72-70 home loss to visiting Wilmington on Tuesday.

Jay Wright had a simple explanation for the turnaround that took place Saturday afternoon in the Wells Fargo Center, when the same Villanova team that got dusted by Georgetown three weeks ago did some dusting of its own. "Eighteen-to-22-year-olds, man," Wright said. "We looked like they did last game, and they looked like we did. " If that is disconcerting for a college coach - to never really know what to expect in a given game - it is also a part of the business that has to be accepted.

A sold-out Wells Fargo Center will be occupied Saturday mostly by Villanova fans who presumably would like nothing better than to see their team gain a measure of revenge for the 20-point defeat Georgetown handed to the then-No. 4 Wildcats on Jan. 19 at the Verizon Center. Villanova coach Jay Wright, however, isn't into the revenge-as-motivation deal. He would rather see the now-No. 7 Wildcats (20-2 overall, 7-2 Big East) put together a complete game at both ends of the court when they take on the 24th-ranked Hoyas (15-7, 7-4)

VILLANOVA HAS won 49 of its last 56 games, which isn't easy to do. Of the losses, only the two to Seton Hall haven't been by double figures. Four were by at least 16, including the last one, a 78-58 beatdown on Jan. 19 at Georgetown. The seventh-ranked Wildcats are 20-2 for the second straight season, and third time in 6 years. So how many other programs can say that? In 2010 and again last March they would go on to lose their second game in the NCAA Tournament as a No. 2 seed. Jay Wright's 2005-06 team also won 20 of its first 22. And that group got to the Final Eight as a No. 1 before being eliminated by eventual national champion Florida.

WASHINGTON - Villanova's had been a very smooth ride for 18 games except for a small bump in North Jersey. Villanova's bus broke down 30 miles north of Baltimore on Sunday, got going and broke down again inside the Fort McHenry Tunnel. The bus got out of the tunnel and went to the side of the road, awaiting a replacement. This apparently was a sign. Villanova's offense broke down or was broken down by Georgetown last night at the Verizon Center. The Wildcats, so confident, so smooth and so in control for so long, were none of that against the Hoyas' swarming defense.

WASHINGTON - The target on Villanova's back appears to get larger when the Wildcats rise higher in the polls, and Georgetown came out Monday night with a purpose and made headlines by knocking off the No. 4 team in the country at the Verizon Center. The Hoyas blitzed the Wildcats with a 17-0 run in the first half, grew the lead to as high as 26 points and fought off a mild comeback try by 'Nova in the second half to run away with a 78-58 upset that knocked the visitors out of first place in the Big East.

ATLANTIC CITY - Oscar De La Hoya was his typical promotional self after watching his business partner, friend and former adversary take a 12-round beatdown at the hands of Sergey Kovalev early yesterday morning. The Golden Boy Promotions leader congratulated Bernard Hopkins - a minority partner in the company - on surviving 12 rounds at the age of 49. De La Hoya fielded questions about future fights for boxers under the Golden Boy umbrella, including Juniata Park's own Danny Garcia.

LIKE MANY OTHERS in the boxing world, the president and founder of Golden Boy Promotions long ago learned not to doubt Bernard Hopkins. "Look," Oscar De La Hoya said yesterday, "I haven't counted Hopkins out since he beat me [in 2004]. Even way before that. "Hopkins is a master at what he does, and psychologically, the question is how is [Sergey] Kovalev going to react to an 'Alien'? He's never fought an athlete like Hopkins. " De La Hoya, a newly minted International Boxing Hall of Famer, spoke at the Joe Hand Boxing Gym in Northern Liberties, where he spent the afternoon in support of Hopkins, his adversary-turned-promoter and business partner.
