WASHINGTON, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Jonathan Wallace made two free throws after a foul call 75 feet from the basket in the last second Monday to give No. 8 Georgetown a 55-53 win over Villanova.
A game with 38 fouls featured a slight bump with the game seemingly headed for overtime. Scottie Reynolds had the ball knocked free and Wallace appeared to be dribbling to an overtime but a foul was called.
Georgetown (20-3, 10-2 Big East) extended its home winning streak to 18 games.
Reynolds led all scorers with 24 points and Dante Cunningham added nine for the Wildcats (14-9, 4-7), who had won their previous six meetings with the Hoyas in Washington.
Wallace's three-pointer had given the Hoyas a 53-49 with 2:12 remaining,
