Eric Dixon led Nova with 15 points and five rebounds.
Georgetown (6-9, 0-4 Big East) has had a brutal start to conference play and last fell 83-75 to Providence on Thursday. The Hoyas drained 13 threes as a team in this contest but were still unable to overcome the Friars. Donald Carey led with 21 points and seven rebounds.
