The Georgetown Hoyas ended its triumphant run through China with a win today over Chinese Taipei. Hollis Thompson led the Hoyas with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Henry Sims, Nate Lubick, Hollis Thompson, Jason Clark and Markel Starks started for the Hoyas, who jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter. Sloppy play and a barrage of threes from the Chinese squad in the second quarter led to a mere three point lead at the half, though in the second half the Hoyas began to pull away, and a double digit lead throughout the fourth quarter was never threatened.
Georgetown finished its diplomatic voyage to the Far East unbeaten, with three wins, zero losses, and one brawl. Though the lasting memory of the trip to China for fans will no doubt be the melee against the Baiyi Rockets, the games against the four teams in Beijing and Shanghai coming directly on the heels of Kenner League have undoubtedly helped these young Hoyas grow accustomed to one another and perhaps more importantly, John Thompson III's offense.
We'll have more on China in the upcoming days as our rock stars return home. In the meantime, be sure to check out Georgetown Hoyas on twitter for all the updates as they happen.
