NEW YORK (AP) - Billy Garrett Jr. scored 17 points, including the clinching free throws, and DePaul surprised Georgetown 60-56 on Wednesday night for only its second Big East tournament victory.

Forrest Robinson snapped a second-half tie with consecutive 3-pointers and had 14 points for the 10th-seeded Blue Demons (12-20), who finished in last place during the regular season. After ending a 14-game losing streak to the Hoyas, DePaul will play Thursday night in the quarterfinals against second-seeded Creighton, ranked No. 14 in the nation.

D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera scored 21 points to pace the seventh-seeded Hoyas (17-14), who were hoping a run to the championship game at Madison Square Garden could still squeeze them into the NCAA tournament after a disappointing season.

Those dreams were dashed with Georgetown's first loss to DePaul since January 1994.
