WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Scoop Jardine scored 17 points for No. 20 Syracuse Saturday and the Orange hung on for a 58-51 victory over No. 11 Georgetown.

Brandon Triche sealed the win with four crucial free throws in the final minute and Rick Jackson chipped in with 12 points for Syracuse (24-6, 11-6 Big East).

Triche ended up with nine points and the Orange kept their hopes for a double-bye in the Big East Tournament alive with their fourth straight win.

Syracuse now goes on to close the regular season at home against DePaul next week.

Austin Freeman scored 16 points for the Hoyas, who were without injured point guard Chris Wright.
