Georgetown escapes with 81-78 win over Charlotte

WASHINGTON (AP) L.J. Peak made two free throws with 7.5 seconds left to help Georgetown thwart Charlotte’s second-half rally for an 81-78 win Saturday.

Peak finished with 18 points for the Hoyas (7-3), who opened strongly in both halves. They led by 14 in the first before Charlotte (6-5) closed on a 7-0 run to get within 38-31.

Georgetown built its lead back to 60-44, but the 49ers used another 7-0 run to get to 70-63 and Braxton Ogbueze’s back-to-back 3s pulled Charlotte within 77-75 with 3:13 to go.

Keyshawn Woods’ basket with 8.6 seconds left pulled Charlotte within 79-78. But Peak’s free throws put the Hoyas back up by three and Woods missed a well-defended 3-point attempt in the final second.

Jabril Trawick added 11 points and 10 rebounds for Georgetown.

Woods led Charlotte with 16 points.
