Baskeball - Wed, Jan. 4, 2012
Georgetown College will be host of a full slate of basketball action
this weekend. Saturday afternoon the nationally ranked women's and men's teams
get back into conference play with a doubleheader against Shawnee State. Sunday
national powerhouse prep Hargrave Military Academy will face off against Rise
Academy at 3:30 pm.
The HMA Tigers are coached by former Scott County star A.W.
Hamilton, who is assisted by former GC star Derrick White. White, a two-time
All-MSC football Tiger, also serves as head strength and conditioning coach to
the 18-0 prep academy.
Hargrave has five current NCAA Division I signees on its
roster - Montrezl Harrell, Virginia Tech; Codi Miller-McIntyre and Andre
Washington, Wake Forest; John Burke, University of Missouri Kansas City; and
Charles Buggs, Minnesota. Rise touts alumni powers such as Laker Kobe Bryant
and Piston Richard Hamilton.
Before Sunday's game, HMA will also play Saturday evening
at Scott County High School, following its game with Bell County. Tip for that
is roughly 8:45 pm.
"To be able to come back to Scott County as a head coach,
and play in front of so many friends and family is a dream come true," Hamilton
said. "The state of Kentucky loves basketball, and we are excited to come play
in front of such passionate people."
