Jessie Govan scored 20 points and pulled down 14 rebounds and host Georgetown gave new head coach Patrick Ewing another victory, beating Mount St. Mary's 102-68 on Wednesday night.

Govan had 20 points and 15 rebounds for the Hoyas (2-0) in their season-opening victory against Jacksonville. Against the Mountaineers (0-3), he was 7-of-9 shooting and made all three of his 3-point attempts.


Jahvon Blair added 19 points and five assists, Jagan Mosley 15 points and five assists, with Kaleb Johnson and Jamorko Pickett each posting 14 points and seven rebounds.

The Hoyas shot 57 percent, 50 percent from the arc (11 of 22) and outrebounded the Mountaineers 51-23.


It was the first time the Hoyas reached 100 points since beating South Carolina Upstate 105-60 on Nov. 12, 2016.

The Mountaineers, coming off losses to No. 13 Notre Dame and Marquette, were led by Junior Robinson with 26 points, Donald Carey 14 and Ryan Gomes 12. The Mountaineers put up 63 3-point attempts in their first two games. Against the Hoyas, they shot 19 and made just four.

The Hoyas led by 18 at halftime and were up by 14 in the second half before going on a 25-9 run.

Penn 66, Navy 45: Ryan Betley and Caleb Wood scored 13 points apiece and Pennsylvania used a big first half to roll past Navy 66-45 on Wednesday night.

The Quakers (1-2) have their first win of the season, and bounced back from a 75-71 double-overtime loss to La Salle on Monday night.

Navy had won four of the last five games against the Quakers, including holding Penn scoreless over the final five minutes in last season's 70-68 victory in Annapolis.

UMES at St. Bonaventure, postponed: A campus-wide power outage postponed a game between the Hawks (1-1) and host Bonnies (0-1).

The first flicker happened roughly half an hour before the scheduled 7 p.m. tipoff at Reilly Center, knocking out power to several dormitories in addition to the lighting and sound system inside the arena.


An attempt by National Grid to reset a fuse and restore power seemed to work at first, but another brownout occurred a few minutes later, and the game was officially postponed at approximately 8:35 p.m.

The game is unlikely to be rescheduled.


Morgan State 60, Lincoln (Pa.) 41: The host Bears (2-1) won their second straight beating the Division III Lions (1-2).

Morgan previously beat Division II Cheney, 123-53, on Monday.
