Otto Porter scored 20 points, and Georgetown made a season-high 15 steals and got a rare first-half boost from a walk-on Wednesday night in a 74-52 win over Seton Hall.

Markel Starks added 16 points as the Hoyas (15-4, 5-3 Big East) never trailed, taking advantage of Seton Hall's turnovers to take a 20-4 lead less than 8 1/2 minutes into the game.

Georgetown has won five of six after an 0-2 start in the conference, but coach John Thompson III's search for help from his thin bench reached a new level when he inserted junior John Caprio, who had played 13 minutes all season, into the rotation with the outcome still in doubt.

Caprio had three points, two rebounds, an assist and a steal in five first-half minutes after the Pirates had pulled within seven.

Brian Oliver scored 13 points and Aaron Cosby 12 for the Pirates (13-8, 2-6).
