A slow start dooms Georgetown College women's basketball. In a bit of Jekyll and Hyde mode, No. 17 Tigers struggled offensively Thursday against St. Catharine, which is receiving votes. After getting behind by as many as 27, GC (14-7, 6-3 Mid-South Conference) fought back. However, it was too large of a mountain to climb, as the team fell 72-60 on the road in Springfield.
Georgetown is coming off one of its best shooting weeks all season, winning big this past week over University of Rio Grande and West Virginia Tech. In both games, the Tigers hit 55 percent from the field, but managed just 33 percent against SCC (17-5, 4-5).
Lizza Jonas came off the bench to lead GC with 14 points. Janae Howard led all scorers with 24 points, while Kasei Evans, 16, and Courtney Milam, 12, also tallied double figures for the Patriots. Howard snagged 12 rebounds as St. Catharine won the battle on the boards, 51-34. This is the second straight win over a ranked opponent for the Patriots.
Georgetown returns to action at No. 19 Campbellsville University Saturday. Tip is set for 2 pm. The CU Tigers are 14-8 and 5-4 in league play and are coming off a loss to No. 11 Shawnee State Thursday.
