The Maui Invitational officially (and confusingly) kicked off in Washington D.C. on Monday night, and Georgetown made short work of UNC Greensboro, shutting down the Spartans in an 86-45 victory. The Hoyas moved to 2-0 on the season in a game whose outcome was never really in doubt. Georgetown started the game on a 12-2 run and never looked back, extending the lead to as much as 46 late in the second half.
O captain, my captain
Senior captain Jason Clark was mostly quiet in the season opener against Savannah State, scoring just nine points. Clark showed why he’s the leader of this team tonight, however, scoring 17 points on 7-for-18 shooting, dishing out three assists, and grabbing three steals–all in 20 minutes. Almost all of Clark’s work came in the first half before the Hoyas’ lead became insurmountable. His shot wasn’t falling from long range (1-for-7 from beyond the arc), but Clark didn’t let that discourage him, fighting his way inside for the majority of his points. The 6-foot-2 guard even managed to grab four offensive rebounds.
