Rodney Pryor had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown withstood a furious second-half rally to hold on for a 65-61 victory over No. 13 Oregon on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational at Lahaina, Hawaii.
Georgetown (1-2) led by 17 points after a superb first half, capped by Pryor’s running three-point shot at the buzzer. The Ducks (2-2) swarmed their way back, using pressure defense to create turnovers and easy baskets in transition.
Unlike in their loss to Maryland last week, the Hoyas weathered the Ducks’ storm and advanced to the second round to face No. 16 Wisconsin, a 74-62 winner over Tennessee.
