WASHINGTON (AP) - Reggie Cameron made the first three 3-point attempts of his college career, part of Georgetown's recovery from a dreadful performance from beyond the arc in its season-opening loss, and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera scored 25 points, helping the Hoyas beat Wright State 88-70 Wednesday night.

Markel Starks added 23 points and six assists for the hosts. That helped make up for a quiet game from center Joshua Smith, the transfer from UCLA who is listed at 6-10 and 350 pounds and scored 25 in his Georgetown debut but only six Wednesday.

Unranked Georgetown (1-1) was 10 for 22 on 3s, quite an improvement after going 1 for 15 while losing 82-75 to then-No. 19 Oregon in South Korea last week.

Kendall Griffin led Wright State (1-1) with 15 points. It was a decided step up in competition for the Raiders, who beat Division III Mount St. Joseph 82-49 in their opener.

Cameron, a 6-foot-7 freshman forward from Hackensack, N.J., finished with nine points.

Within eight minutes of tipoff, Georgetown already was 4 for 5 on 3s, including a pair of makes by Cameron on the first two shots of his college career. When Smith-Rivera, then Starks, hit 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to improve the Hoyas to 6 for 8 in that category, they were ahead by 23, at 42-19, with not quite 14 minutes gone in the game.

Even Mikael Hopkins, a 6-9 junior forward, got in on the act, hitting only the second 3 of his Georgetown career, and first since he was a freshman.

Georgetown wound up leading 50-31 at halftime, behind 17 points from Smith-Rivera.

The 82 points scored by Oregon were more than any Georgetown opponent managed in regulation all of last season. The Hoyas were outrebounded in the opener, too. But John Thompson III's Big East team fared much better against significantly smaller Wright State, a member of the Horizon League, including a 40-31 edge in rebounds and holding the Raiders to 38.6 percent shooting for the game.

After avoiding what would have been its first 0-2 start in 15 years, Georgetown next plays Northeastern a week from Thursday, beginning a stretch of three games in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.
