Georgetown College women's basketball erased a 10-point second half deficit to No. 4 seed Vanguard University, out of California, to advance to the round of 32 for the first time since 2005. Senior Mikkah Rogers hit a three for a three-point lead late in the game, then freshman Dev King stepped to the line for to crucial free throws for the 70-68 win.
The Tigers (22-9) will play Avila (22-9), and also an upset winner in the opening-round, 4:30 pm Friday. GC was a No. 5 seed taking down the No. 4, while Avila was a No. 8 seed taking out No. 1 Freed-Hardeman. Both were late rallies for the victory.
"We played great down the stretch," said Tiger coach Andrea McCloskey. "Jessica Waddle hit some clutch threes. After Vanguard tied it up, Dev King ran the floor well and we found her forcing the foul and the free throws. We just never gave up."
Esther Timmermans had a double-double with 12 points and 16 rebounds, while Paige Halberg had 18 for Vanguard.
