WASHINGTON - Mike Williams and Deonta Vaughn scored all of Cincinnati's overtime points on free throws, and the Bearcats completed a season sweep of Georgetown with a 64-62 victory Saturday.

Williams went 3-for-4 from the line, and Vaughn was 2-for-2 in an extra period in which neither team made a field goal. Georgetown went 0-for-8 from the field in overtime, with Austin Freeman missing a potential game-winning 3-pointer against tough defense from Rashad Bishop at the buzzer.

Vaughn finished with 16 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists for the Bearcats (16-8, 6-5 Big East), who had never beaten Georgetown until a 64-57 victory at home on Jan. 28. Cincinnati, which beat Notre Dame earlier in the week, has won six of eight.

In addition to Williams and Vaughn, Yancy Gates finished with 11 points and seven rebounds, and Larry Davis scored all 11 of his points in the second half.

Alvin Mitchell came off the bench and hit three 3-pointers in the second half, including one in the final minute that capped off a 5-0 run to send the game into overtime.

Greg Monroe had 13 points, six rebounds and five steals for Georgetown (13-9, 4-7), which has lost six of seven.

Cincinnati returns to the hardwood on Wednesday, Feb. 11, when St. John's comes to Fifth Third Arena. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. on
