Danny Nieman, Coastal Carolina’s second-leading scorer at 11 points a game, was held without a point. Chad Gray scored 13 points for the Chanticleers on 3 of 11 shooting.

Georgetown, the only ranked team among the eight tournament participants, had its outside touch going from the start, making 8 of 12 from beyond the arc and opening a 30-18 lead with six minutes left in the first half.

But the Hoyas, with Freeman watching from the bench with two fouls, got ragged the rest of the way and let the Chanticleers back in it. Georgetown had only one basket and committed half of its 10 first-half turnovers during that stretch.

Greenwood’s steal and breakaway basket got Coastal Carolina within 32-26 at the break.

Georgetown has improved its outside production each of its three games. It made eight 3s in an opening victory over Old Dominion and upped that total to 12 against Temple this past Monday.

The Hoyas supporters on hand included former player and NASCAR driver Brendan Gaughan. He played for John Thompson’s Hoyas and was most notably a practice partner for Georgetown star Allen Iverson in 1995-96.
