Back on the hardwood for the first time after a couple of tough days, senior guard Jason Clark (Arlington, Va./BishopO'Connell) scored 17 points to lead four players in double figures as the Georgetown men's basketball team used a big second half to pull away from the Liaoning Dinosaurs in front of a packed crowd at the Nike Festival of Sport Sunday afternoon.

It was Georgetown's first game since arriving in Shanghai on Friday and the team's first action since a game on Thursday in Beijing against the Bayi Rockets ended prematurely after heated exchanges between the teams.

The game was played in front of a packed house on a court built by Nike for its Festival of Sport. Nearly 1,000 fans, including many Hoya fans who traveled with the team, and NBA stars such as Amare Stoudamire, Tyson Chandler and Kyrie Irving, were in attendance as the crowds cheered for baskets and great plays on both ends of the floor.

"That was exactly what we anticipated," Head Coach John Thompson III said. "If you looked at the events that happened the other day, that's not the norm. The reception that our team got today and the atmosphere here today was much more consistent with a, what we anticipated and b, what we experienced in every game and event since we've been here. So that was not surprising.

"What was, I wouldn't say surprising, but exciting and good, was the number of people there, the whole atmosphere, the venue in and of itself and being part of Nike's Festival of Sport was different special."

Clark scored 17 points, hitting 6-of-11 shots from the floor, to lead the team, while freshman Otto Porter (Sikeston, Mo./Scott County Central) added 12 points seven rebounds and three assists, freshman Mikael Hopkins (Hyattsville, Md./DeMatha) added 11 points and five rebounds, and redshirt sophomore Aaron Bowen (Jacksonville, Fla./QEA) finished with 10 points, three rebounds and two steals.

The Hoyas connected on 54.2 percent of their field goals (39-of-72), including 44.4 percent from three-point land (8-of-18) and were 45.5 percent from the free throw line (5-of-11). GU held a 40-27 advantage on the boards, handed out 20 assists, had 12 turnovers and registered 13 steals.
