SYRACUSE, New York (Ticker) -- Hakim Warrick helped Syracuse keep its poise to outlast an old foe.
Warrick scored 25 points to pace four players in double figures and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead No. 7 Syracuse to a 78-73 overtime victory over Georgetown in a Big East Conference matchup.
The Orange (18-1, 5-0 Big East) have won 11 straight games and 43 of their last 46 at the Carrier Dome.
In a second half that saw the teams trade the lead on several occasions, Darrel Owens hit a 3-pointer with 2:48 remaining to bring the Hoyas within 66-65. After Warrick made a free throw, Georgetown's Brandon Bowman forced overtime when he nailed a 20-foot jumper with six seconds left.
"We didn't come out with a lot of energy tonight, especially rebounding," Warrick said. "Georgetown was all pumped up. Georgetown is one of the best teams we've played the whole season."
But Syracuse went on a 7-0 run to start the extra period. Louie McCroskey hit a jumper, Gerry McNamara buried his fifth 3-pointer and Warrick had a breakaway dunk that gave the Orange a 76-70 edge.
"It was a tremendous performance by Georgetown," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. "They play great on the road. They played with poise. But our guys wouldn't let the game get out of hand when we got behind. We made plays when we had to."
Warrick registered his ninth double-double of the season while McNamara scored 17 points and broke the school record for career 3-pointers with his 250th, surpassing Preston Shumpert.
"I really wasn't worried about that," McNamara said. "I think I have a few more games to play here. I was just trying to get us the win."
Josh Pace scored nine of his 13 points in the second half and Craig Forth had his first double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds for Syracuse.
The Orange shot 52 percent (28-of-54) and beat Georgetown for the fifth straight time.
"We knew we were going to play a tough team," McNamara said. "We're experienced and we know how to handle these types of situations."
Bowman scored 19 points before fouling out, while Roy Hibbert added 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Hoyas (11-5, 3-2), who suffered their first road loss.
