It looks like the Georgetown Hoyas have finally find a way to win consistently, five in a row after a solid victory over UNC Greensboro, 78-56.
Jesse Govan continues to find his game and had a total of 20 points and nine rebounds and pretty much unstoppable inside of the paint.
Govan was 9 of 13 from the field and hit both of his 3-pointers for the Hoyas (8-4). L.J. Peak made 9 of 11 free throws and scored 16 points with five assists, Marcus Derrickson added three 3-pointers and 15 points and Rodney Pryor had 12 points.
“It opens up a lot for our offense,” Govan said. “Our guards feel comfortable throwing it to us on the perimeter and they’re confident in us to knock it down. We’re going to try to keep on doing that. Coach has put a lot of confidence in us to take the open shot if we had it. We feel good about taking the shot, and it’s been going in lately.”
For UNC Greensboro, they had the game in range tied at 12, but the Hoyas went on a 12-1 run and opened a lead that they would never relinquish.
“They do a good job setting flare screens that turn into back screens at the top of the floor in their Princeton offense,” UNC Greensboro Coach Wes Miller said. “You try to help on their cutters, and when those guys can step out and make them, it makes them a really tough team to guard.”
