I second that. Consider the polar pattern of the mic. It's most sensitive from the side you're singing into (assuming it's not figure-8) and least so from the back. So, if your options are limited, you're better off trying to eliminate the reflections that might bounce back into the "singing side" of the mic. You'll still get some reverb in the signal but, it will cut down the level of early reflection and at least give you a clearer "main" vocal.
