Hoyas detour Explorers' upset effort

(TSX / STATS) -- Guard L.J. Peak scored 24 points and hot-shooting Georgetown proved too much for LaSalle in a 93-78 victory over the Explorers in the Hoophall Miami Invitational on Saturday.

The Hoyas (6-4) led 47-41 at halftime, but the Explorers started the second half on a roll and tied the game at 67 with 8:44 to play. But guard Rodney Pryor answered with a layup on the ensuing possession, sparking a 6-0 run that put the Hoyas ahead for good.

LaSalle never came within one possession again, and Georgetown ended the game on a 25-11 run for its fourth victory in a row.
