Women's Basketball - Sat, Jan. 28, 2012
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
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.
