Recap: Georgetown 82, North Carolina State 67

Georgetown won the Charleston Classic with an impressive second half against the North Carolina State Wolfpack tonight.  Of course, I should receive full credit for the victory, as I headed out for an evening with the wife just before halftime and wasn't able to get back to the game until after it ended. But because of my personal sacrifice, I didn't get to see the good stuff (read: Henry Sims), so the recap will be brief.

Let's run the numbers:

The big stat that jumps out at me from tonight's box score is the low turnover rate for the Hoyas.  Georgetown was averaging 22% turnovers coming into the game, but managed to commit only nine on 69 offensive possessions.  This was a big driver in the high offensive efficiency Georgetown produced today.

The Hoyas also did an excellent job crashing the offensive glass in the second half, while not getting overwhelmed on the defensive side.  As mentioned yesterday, N.C. State was not a great rebounding team last season, and the loss of Tracy Smith was probably a big deal for the Wolfpack on the glass.

This was the worst outside shooting performance by Georgetown so far this season - although 36% isn't terrible by any stretch - but the Hoyas became much more selective from outside in the Vesper half [1st half: 5/15 3FG; 2nd half: 3/7].  Conversely, Georgetown wasn't getting it inside much in the first half [6/10 on dunks, layups and tips] but really pounded it in the paint after halftime [13/18].  Partial credit to Coach Thompson for making that adjustment during the break, and partial credit to the team to playing smart once they built a comfortable lead.

Star of the game goes to Hollis Thompson, who had his shot dropping tonight [5/6 2FG, 2/3 3FG, 2/2 FT], but also grabbed 9 rebounds and just missed become the third different Hoya to get a double-double in consecutive games.

Chris Wright played another strong game in spite of some rough shooting [4/10 2FG], thanks in large part to the seven assists he had.  He was the star of the tournament by our measure [+19 net points], and also won some hardware in Charleston.

Smile.  Henry Sims took full advantage of the tournament to announce his presence with authority.  Tonight was the most game action he's had since Tulane, and he continued his strong defensive play while picking it up on offense [4 pts, 5 asts, 4 oreb].  His growing comfort in the high post may be the key development in the early going.

Vee Sanford should have played more. (This quote was pasted from the last recap.  I hope to not need it next Saturday).
