CHARLESTON, S.C. — Hollis Thompson scored 18 points, Chris Wright added 17 and No. 20 Georgetown used a 15-0 second half run to power past North Carolina State 82-67 and win the Charleston Classic on Sunday night.
The Hoyas improved to 5-0 for the second straight season in their first game against the Wolfpack since the NCAA round of 16 in 1989.
Trailing 44-42, Big East preseason player of the year Austin Freeman started Georgetown's surge with a one-handed power jam. Henry Sims followed with a bucket to give the Hoyas the lead for good. Wright hit a jumper and Thompson and Jason Clark connected on 3-pointers to put the Hoyas ahead 57-44.
Reserve Richard Howell scored 14 points for North Carolina State (2-1), which was trying for its third in-season tournament crown in four years.
