The Georgetown Hoyas helped ease the sting of their close loss to Kansas on Monday by easily dismantling Chaminade in the consolation bracket of the Maui Invitational Tuesday afternoon. Chaminade was no match for the bigger and more athletic Hoyas, as Georgetown cruised for an easy 88-61 win. The Hoyas will now face Memphis on Wednesday after the Tigers won a thrilling double-overtime classic against Tennessee earlier on Tuesday.
Georgetown led 45-33 at intermission thanks to a 17-of-28 shooting performance from the field, including seven made three pointers in twelve attempts. The Hoyas cooled off some in the second half. Well, all but Jason Clark who stayed hot in the second half to finish with 28 points on 10-12 shooting (6-7, 3 pt FGs). Thanks to Clark's sharp-shooting, the Hoyas finished with nine made three pointers, but they also did work in the paint, outscoring Chaminade 38-24 inside.
