Women's Basketball - Sat, Jan. 21, 2012
Georgetown College women's basketball team has not
struggled to score this season, averaging 73.5 points. But, the No. 18 Tigers (14-6)
have not always been the sharpest of shooters. Coming into this week's home
games, Georgetown was hitting about 23 shots per game. The team hit roughly 37
shots in each of this week's games of onslaught wins.
GC followed up its 33-point shooting clinic over
University of Rio Grande, which has been receiving votes in the national poll,
with a 96-46 win over West Virginia Tech (6-15) on Saturday.
"Coming off back-to-back losses and our first losses in
the conference this past week, this is what we needed to do," said Tiger head
coach Andrea McCloskey. "We have to win the ones we should and a pair of home
games are just that."
It was another balanced night with six double-figure
scorers. Rockcastle County product Angie Lawrence came off the bench to tie her
career-high with 16 points to lead the way. Tates Creek standout Lizza Jonas
dropped in 14 points and also snagged a game-tying high seven rebounds. Gina
Beining and Jessica Waddle had 12 points each, while Andrea Howard and Devon
Golden finished with 11 each.
"We had great production from our bench this week and
that is something we have to see continue," McCloskey said. "Chelsey (Johnson),
Angie, Lizza and Mikkah (Rogers) can give us such a spark and we don't loss
anything with any of them out there.
"Now we have to go back on the road and battle there as
well. We have St. Catharine and Campbellsville next week. Both will be tough
The Tigers go to Springfield first for a 6 pm game
Thursday. The Patriots are coming off an 81-76 win over No. 20 Lindsey Wilson
College. GC follows that up with a trip to Campbellsville Saturday for a 2 pm
