Pryor sizzles in debut, Georgetown trumps SC Upstate 105-60
WASHINGTON (AP) Rodney Pryor made a career-high six 3-pointers and finished with 32 points in his Georgetown debut, helping the Hoyas overpower SC Upstate for a 105-60 season-opening win on Saturday.
Pryor, who averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game for Robert Morris last season, made 6 of 8 from beyond the arc and 13 of 16 (81.3 percent) from the field, the most efficient shooting performance of his career with at least 10 shot attempts.
Georgetown hit 66 percent from the field (36 of 54) and led 68-35 at halftime, setting a school record for points in the first half. Pryor had 26 points at the break and fell one 3-pointer short of tying the program mark.
L.J. Peak added 14 points for the Hoyas.
Mike Cunningham tied a career-high with five 3 pointers and finished with 17 points for the Spartans.
This is the fifth time Georgetown has scored at least 100 points in coach John Thompson's 12 seasons at the helm.
