Baskeball - Mon, Feb. 27, 2012
Georgetown College men's and women's basketball teams
closed on a strong note this past weekend, reeling off two road victories for
the first time since before Christmas break.
While both teams' fates were already determined for
postseason play - women finished third and men second - each showed a will to
win at non-conference West Virginia Tech.
The women Tigers came out strong and held a 49-19
halftime edge behind Jessica Waddle's eclipsing of her 1,000 career point. The
senior finished with 14 points on the day to give her 1,009 heading into
Aaron Morris dominated for the men, scoring 21 points and
grabbing eight rebounds. The Golden Bears made it interesting down the stretch,
but GC hit free throws and took care of the ball to pull out the road victory.
