WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) Ty-Shon Alexander hit six 3-pointers and scored 26 points, Mitch Ballock made four free throws in the last 30 seconds and Creighton ended a four-game losing streak with a 91-87 win over Georgetown on Monday night.
The Bluejays (11-8, 2-4 Big East Conference) outscored the Hoyas (12-7, 2-4) 8-2 after James Akinjo 3's gave Georgetown an 85-83 lead with 2:09 to play.
Creighton got a free throw from Davion Mintz at 1:41, and after a Hoya miss, Alexander hit a go-ahead 3-pointer following a Ballock offensive rebound. Ballock grabbed a defensive board and was fouled, making two free throws with 27.1 seconds to play to make it 89-85. Greg Malinowski made a layup for Georgetown but Ballock's two free throws at 15.2 kept the pressure on.
