Georgetown College men's basketball team found its chemistry midway through the first half and then dominated in the final 20 against Miami University Hamilton to open the season. The Harriers managed just 10 points in the second half as the Tigers (1-0) rolled 102-32 at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym Tuesday.
"It's always good to start 1-0," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We had a strong talk at halftime about our intensity and taking care of the basketball. I thought we responded well."
The Tigers fullcourt pressure forced 16 turnovers in the second half, as MUH had just seven points through the first 16 minutes. Marcus Moses hit a three in the final four minutes to put the Harriers into double-digits for the final 20.
Deondre McWhorter, who took a redshirt his first year at Georgetown, exploded in the post for 21 points and excited the crowd with his rim-rattling dunks. Vic Moses, in his return from a medical redshirt, scored 19 points in 20 minutes and grabbed nine rebounds.
"That's the balance we like," Briggs said. "We had solid contributions inside and out and off the bench. Garel (Craig) had 10 assists, distributing the ball in his natural point guard position."
The Tigers had 22 assists on their 41 baskets. Montavious Marc started his GC career with 14 rebounds to lead the team in a dominating performance on the boards. The team outrebounded MUH 61-26.
Georgetown was 52.6 percent from the field, 37.5 from deep, while holding the Harriers to 21.4 percent shooting and 8.3 percent from three-point range.
The Tigers return to action 7:30 pm Friday against Miami Middletown.
