The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Rod­ney Pryor scored 23 points, LJ Peak added 22 and Ge­orge­town held off Elon 77-74 on Sun­day.

The Hoyas con­tin­u­ally surged ahead with the Phoenix com­ing back.

The game was tied at 36 at half­time but a dunk by Pryor put Ge­orge­town up 52-41 less than five min­utes into the sec­ond half. Shel­don Eber­hardt and Brian Dawkins had 3-point­ers in an 8-0 surge for Elon but the Phoenix never got over the hump.

A Dawkins 3-pointer made it a one-point game at 8:49, but a 3 by the Hoyas’ Tre Campbell put the lead at 76-68 with 2:58 to go. Elon had one last surge and Luke Eddy’s layup with 15 sec­onds left made it a one-pos­ses­sion game.

Dawkins fin­ished with 17 points for Elon, which shot 42 per­cent but made 11 3’s, and Luke Eddy had 12.

Jesse Go­van added 13 points for the Hoyas.
