WASHINGTON (AP) - Greg Whittington scored a career-high 25 points, and No. 15 Georgetown beat Western Carolina 81-68 Saturday in a game played as executives discussed the future of the Hoyas and the Big East conference.
Jabril Trawick added a career-high 14 points, and Otto Porter had 12 for the Hoyas (9-1), who took control with a 13-3 run at the end of the first half against a school that fell to 0-38 against teams ranked in the AP poll.
Tom Tankelewicz made six 3-pointers and scored a career-high 24 points to lead the Catamounts (4-7).
Georgetown is one of seven Big East schools without top-level football programs who were scheduled to have a conference call Saturday to discuss splitting from the conference. Hoyas athletic director Lee Reed quickly covered up his smartphone when a reporter approached him during halftime and said he didn't know when an announcement might be made.
