WASHINGTON (AP) Otto Porter scored a career-high 22 points, added seven assists and four rebounds and returned after taking an apparent hit to the head during the second half of No. 15 Georgetown's 89-53 win over Longwood on Monday night.

Porter went to the bench with 13:46 left, holding his hand to his face. He took a hit to the head during the Hoyas' season-opening win over Duquesne and missed the next game with ``symptoms indicative of a mild concussion.'' But unlike against Duquesne, Porter didn't leave the court area, and fans gave him a noticeable ovation when he returned a few minutes later.

Before Porter left the game, Georgetown (8-1) had already built a sizable lead over Longwood (2-8).

Markel Starks was 4 for 5 from 3-point range and had 17 points for the Hoyas while Greg Whittington had eight points.
