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 games."
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 game.
