|Syracuse Beats Georgetown in Big East Clash
|SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Kris Joseph scored 15 points, Wes Johnson added 14 and No. 4 Syracuse rallied from a big early deficit to beat seventh-ranked Georgetown 73-56 Monday night.
Syracuse (20-1, 7-1 Big East) has won seven straight since a home loss to Pittsburgh and has defeated Georgetown (15-4, 6-3) six consecutive times in the Carrier Dome.
It was the 819th career win for Orange coach Jim Boeheim, breaking a tie with UConn's Jim Calhoun for sixth in Division I. Boeheim also extended his Division I record for most 20-win seasons to 32 in his 34 years at his alma mater.
Austin Freeman led Georgetown with 23 points.
Syracuse, which trailed by 14 just 3 minutes into the game, started the second half with an 18-8 surge to take control.
