No. 16 Wisconsin beats Georgetown 73-57 in Maui semifinals

Oregon Ducks vs. Georgetown University Hoyas- 11/21/16 College Basketball Pick Odds and Prediction

These two meet from the Lahaina Civic Center in Maui, Hawaii.

Rodney Pryor had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown withstood a furious second-half rally to hold on for a 65-61 victory over No. 13 OR on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational at Lahaina, Hawaii.

However, Preseason All-Big Ten forward Bronson Koenig lead the Badgers on a 14-6 run soon afterward, giving control of the game back to Wisconsin. Tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. "I mean when you're exhausted you just gotta bust down to the block and get positioned before the shot goes up ..."

Georgetown center Bradley Hayes, right, guards Wisconsin forward Ethan Happ, left, in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Maui Invitational, Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016, in Lahaina, Hawaii. The Badgers have finished with a double-digit cushion on the glass in all five of those games.

"We held him to the 10 to 15 minutes that we thought we'd play him", Altman said. "There are times when it's not pretty". North Carolina has won the tournament three times. The Badgers took the 32-29 halftime advantage and ran with it to start the second half, scoring the first six points and preventing the Hoyas from trimming the deficit lower than six at any point.

Hallie Thome scored 11 for the Wolverines, who outscored the Broncos 40-16 in the second half. "This year I'm really just trying to stay on attack the whole game and just be consistently more aggressive, because that opens up everything else", Koenig told reporters.

"I just tried to come out and be aggressive", Koenig said.

"I had to redeem myself", Brooks said.

Pryor carried the Hoyas on Monday as only two Georgetown players finished with double-digit point totals.

After switching to navy in the late 80's and using black in the late 90's, the Hoyas brought back the lighter shade as a specialty uniform in 2002 and donned the alternate threads on special occasions over the course of five seasons.

Wisconsin had some trouble with Tennessee's depth and athletic young players but shot well and was solid defensively.

"We are not playing very well, but we had to find a way to win the game", Altman said.

Iverson contributed 10 points and seven rebounds against the Hoyas.

Brooks carried OR in his second game back from offseason foot surgery, playing well at both ends before hitting the long 3-pointer and 1 of 2 free throws to seal it.

OR got its best performance its best player.

The Maui trip in itself has been a lot of work for Vosters, whose responsibilities include planning travel and road accommodations for the Badgers."It's a lot to plan for, but when we get here it's smooth sailing for the most part", Vosters said. In the final 1:15, Pritchard recorded a steal, an assist on a Brooks 3-pointer, went coast to coast for a layup and a hit jumper that closed the gap to four.

The Badgers started the second half with six consecutive empty possessions: two missed free throws by Hayes, three missed 3-pointers and two turnovers.

The Ducks will be making their second Maui Invitational appearance, as they lost to the eventual Maui champion North Carolina in 2008.

The second half saw both teams begin to struggle from the free throw line. Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson III used a much smaller lineup in the second half against the Red Wolves in order to keep up with the four-guard lineup they used.
