Women's Basketball - Thu, Jan. 19, 2012
Georgetown College women's basketball team was ready to
erase the two-game road skid of a week ago. The No. 18 Tigers did just that
Thursday at home against University of Rio Grande. They blistered the nets in a
24-2 run to start the game and broke triple digits for the first time this
Andrea Howard scored 22 points, while birthday girl
Jessica Waddle notched 19 in a 103-70 win over the RedStorm.
Georgetown (13-6, 6-2) ended Rio's (13-6, 4-3) three-game
winning streak and left nothing to doubt all night. The RedStorm got an shot in
the arm offensively from Shardae Morrison-Fountain early in the second half,
but could never get any closer than 15 in the final 20 minutes.
Four others tallied double-figures for GC with Devanny
King and Lizza Jonas 15 each, Chelsey Johnson 14 and Gina Beining 13. King also
had 11 rebounds for a double-double.
