Chudier Bile had 19 points and Jamorko Pickett scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half to lead Georgetown to a 68-60 victory over DePaul in a Big East game on Saturday in Chicago.

Bile made 5 of 9 shots from the field, including 2 of 5 from 3-point range. He also sank 7 of 8 attempts from the free-throw line.

Pickett drained 3 of 5 attempts from beyond the arc and made all five of his free throws.

Dante Harris added 14 points for the Hoyas (8-11 overall, 6-8 Big East), who won for the third time in four games.

Georgetown made 21 of 51 shots (41.2 percent) from the field, including 7 of 17 (41.2 percent) from 3-point range. The Hoyas also went 19-for-21 (90.5 percent) at the free-throw line.

DePaul (4-12, 2-12), which was led by Charlie Moore's 22 points, shot 22 of 57 (38.6 percent) from the field and 7 of 18 (38.9 percent) from 3-point range. The Blue Demons lost for the seventh time in eight games.

After Moore opened the second half with a 3-pointer to trim Georgetown's lead to 30-29, the Hoyas reeled off the game's next 15 points. Pickett hit three 3-pointers during that surge to give the Hoyas a 45-29 lead with 14 minutes remaining.

Pickett kept the run going when he was fouled while taking another 3-pointer. He made all three free throws to extend the lead to 48-29 before Ray Salnave's 3-pointer ended the run.

Georgetown tried to take control late in the first half, as it built a 28-18 lead with a little under three minutes left in the first half following Bile's two free throws. DePaul, however, closed the half on an 8-2 run to pull to within 30-26 at halftime.

DePaul's Javon Freeman-Liberty, who is second on the team in scoring averaging 13.4 points per game, missed his fourth straight contest. He is recovering from a concussion he sustained during a loss to Providence on Feb. 13.
