With top player Otto Porter Jr. sitting out because of concussion symptoms, Georgetown got a career-high 18 points plus nine rebounds from Greg Whittington and had very little trouble beating Liberty 68-59 Wednesday night.
Nate Lubick added 13 points and eight rebounds, and Mikael Hopkins scored 13 for Georgetown (2-0).
Liberty (0-3) was led by Casey Roberts' 13 points.
Liberty scored the game's first four points, before Georgetown reeled off 17 in a row.
All in all, it became the sort of mismatch one might expect between teams from the Big East and Big South. Liberty already lost to Richmond by 42 points and to William & Mary by 12. Plus, the Flames were without three of their primary post players, who are injured.
Liberty, which is in Lynchburg, Va., is 0-9 against Big East opponents.
Now things should get tougher for Georgetown, which travels to New York to play No. 13 UCLA on Monday, then No. 1 Indiana or Georgia on Tuesday.
Against the Flames, even without preseason ...
