WASHINGTON (AP) Isaac Copeland made a 3-pointer with 5.4 seconds left and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera blocked Butler's final shot as time ran out to give Georgetown a 61-59 victory on Saturday.

Jabril Trawick scored six straight points to hand Georgetown (12-5, 4-2 Big East) a 37-36 lead and Copeland followed with the Hoyas' next seven to make it 44-38 with 12:38 left. The Bulldogs rallied to go up 48-47, the first of 10 lead changes over the final 8:48.

Roosevelt Jones' layup gave Butler its final lead with 12 seconds left before Copeland followed with his big 3-pointer. Jones then drove down the floor but Smith-Rivera shadowed him and rejected Jones' layup.

Smith-Rivera led Georgetown with 14 points, Copeland, Trawick and Joshua Smith all had 10.

Jones scored a career-high 28 points for Butler (13-6, 3-3), which defeated Georgetown 64-58 on Nov. 28 in the Bahamas. Kellen Dunham scored 13, all in the first half.
