Women's Basketball - Thu, Dec. 8, 2011
After jumping out to an early edge, 13-12, Georgetown
College women's basketball could not keep pace with a hot-shooting Northern
Kentucky University (5-2) team Wednesday evening.
The Norse began to find range in the final 10 minutes of the
first half, hitting six threes, and breaking the game open 45-23.
The No. 21 Tigers (9-2) never quit, pulling back within
10 several times in the second half, but could not overcome their own slow
shooting night - 27.1 percent from the field - and turnovers (18).
"It was good for us to go up to Northern Kentucky and
take on a team like that," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "Of course we had
hoped for a better result, but it was a good experience for us to see areas we
need to work on against a non-conference opponent. NKU is a great team and when
they got hot there wasn't a whole lot we could do to slow them down. It took us
out of our game a bit and we never fully recovered.
"I was proud to see them continue to battle and can only
see good things coming out of playing an NCAA D-II school as we advance deeper
into our season."
Andrea Howard led the way with 15 points, while Devon
Golden chipped in with 12. Devanny King led on the boards with eight rebounds
and Golden grabbed seven. GC as a team pulled down 35 rebounds, much fewer than
its season average of 50.4 going into Wednesday's game.
