La Salvation: Hoyas Lucky to Edge Explorers, 69-62, After Another Second-half Implosion

When your Georgetown Hoyas released their 2022-23 schedule, many fans believed that the Jersey Mike’s Jamaica Classic would not be a strong enough test. The reality was quite different. The Hoyas were fortunate to follow up their Friday shellacking to Loyola Marymount with a narrow, heart-attack-inducing win against the La Salle Explorers, 69-62.

In the first half, the Hoyas dominated the paint and demonstrated the kind of defense that has been all too lacking in recent years but barely avoided another epic second half collapse.

The Hoyas maintained the same starting five and started the game with an impressive 10-0 run, with Brandon Murray and Qudus Wahab responsible for the early scoring.
