Nov 8, 2022, 7:20 AM | Updated: 9:59 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) — Amir “Primo” Spears scored 28 points, Bryson Mozone added seven in overtime and Georgetown knocked off Coppin State 99-89 on Tuesday night to snap a 21-game losing streak.

Coppin State’s Nendah Tarke put up a potential game-tying 3 with four seconds left in regulation. But the rebound went long to teammate Mike Hood, who then drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime tied 83-83.

In the extra session, Georgetown struck first before Hood tied the score with a pair of free throws. The Hoyas scored six straight before a Tarke layup cut it to 91-87. Georgetown put the game away with consecutive 3s from Akok Akok and Mozone.

Spears was 10-of-19 shooting from the floor and hit 7 of 9 free throws. Mozone scored 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting. Akok had 18 points and 12 rebounds for his first career double-double and blocked five shots.

Justin Steers led the Eagles (0-2) with a career-high 21 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks. Tarke added 17 points, six rebounds and four steals. Sam Sessoms had 16 points, 10 assists and four steals.
