PYEONGTAEK, South Korea (AP) - Joseph Young had 24 points and five rebounds as No. 19 Oregon beat Georgetown 82-75 on Saturday in a season opener played at a U.S. army base in South Korea.
Young, who made all 12 of his free throw attempts, and Jason Calliste, who scored 16 points and made all 11 of his free throws, led Oregon to a win before hundreds of soldiers at Camp Humphreys, a U.S. Army base south of Seoul, the country's capital.
Georgetown center Joshua Smith scored 25 points but only had four rebounds for the Hoyas, who closed within four points with a minute left. But Georgetown missed key free throws in the closing minutes, while Oregon hit theirs.
Georgetown was outrebounded 40-32 and was just 1 of 15 from 3-point range.
