November 12, 1995

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Sophomores Allen Iverson and Jahidi White each scored 20 points and Georgetown started the second half with a 15-4 run in a 116-83 exhibition victory over the Croatian Young National Team on Saturday night.

The Hoyas shot 59 percent from the field with six players scoring in double figures, and outrebounded the Croatian team 46-24 to win for the second time in as many preseason contests.

Iverson was 8-for-10 from the field and added six steals and five assists in just 18 minutes of play.

Only one Georgetown player _ freshman guard Victor Page _ played more than 19 minutes.

Page, who started in the backcourt with Iverson, finished with nine points in 20 minutes.

``I know what I’d like to do (about the guard situation), but I’m not sure who I’m going to do it with yet,″ said Georgetown coach John Thompson, whose team plays host to Colgate in the opening round of the Preseason NIT on Thursday night. ``I’m trying to get us back to the old style of basketball where we go at you for 40 minutes a game, which is going to take a lot of people to do.″

Jerome Williams added 11 points for Georgetown, while three other players finished with 10 points apiece.

Gordan Giricek and Dubravko Zemljic each had 19 points for Croatia.
