G'Town rebounds against K-State, 90-63

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera had 25 points to lead four Georgetown starters in double-figures as the Hoyas overwhelmed Kansas State in a 90-63 victory on Friday at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Jabril Trawick added 16 points for the Hoyas (2-2).

Georgetown coach John Thompson III didn't hold his tongue in critiquing his team's dismal second-half performance in its opening-game loss to Northeastern on Thursday.

The Hoyas responded by playing much more fluidly in their offensive sets and by limiting their mistakes. They led by as many as 29 and shot 63 percent from the field for the game with 19 assists.

Kansas State (2-3) fell in a 10-0 hole early and never could sting together a meaningful run. Thomas Gipson led the Wildcats with 18 points. In his third game back after from injury Gipson got more involved, but again was stunted early because of foul trouble.

Georgetown was the much livelier team out of the opening tip and led by 17 at the half.

K-State picked things up in the final 20 minutes, but its efforts were too late as the Georgetown pushed its lead above 20 with just under 12 minutes to play.

Coming off a lackluster shooting performance down the stretch in the Northeastern loss, the Hoyas were a lot more fluid in the first half Friday against the Wildcats.

The Hoyas pushed the pace early, forcing 10 K-State turnovers in the opening 20 minutes. Georgetown also spread the ball around in the half court, shooting 63 percent and racking up 11 assists on its 17 field goals.

The Wildcats connected on just 8 of 24 attempts from the field in the half and had only two assists.
