WASHINGTON (AP)—Taking full control of Georgetown’s offense, Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark combined to make the team’s first 12 baskets on Monday night and finished with a total of 36 points, leading the Hoyas to a 86-45 victory over UNC Greensboro.
Thompson, the Hoyas’ only junior, made 5 of 6 3-point attempts and scored 19 points. Clark, one of only two seniors, had all 17 of his points by halftime, when Georgetown (2-0) led 41-16.
Markel Starks added 11 points, all in the second half, as Georgetown heads into its Nov. 21 game against 12th-ranked Kansas in the Maui Invitational.
UNC Greensboro (0-2), of Southeastern Conference, started last season 0-15. Trevis Simpson led the Spartans with 11 points.
Once the margin got above 40 points in the second half, the Hoyas rested Clark and Thompson and other starters and went mainly with newcomers.
