released. For the third straight year, Georgetown men's basketball has a representative;
while on the women's side it is has had two in the past three seasons.
Senior Maurice Pearson, who battled injuries his final
three seasons as a Tiger, scored 1,005 points in the Orange & Black and
when healthy helped to guide GC down low. He averaged 15.2 points per game and
8.5 rebounds per game with 12 double-doubles. His last basket in the semifinal
game of the Mid-South Conference tournament gave him 1,000 for his career, but
unfortunately due to a knee injury he played only one game in the final four of the season.
Sophomore Andrea Howard had a breakout season to get an
All-American honorable mention nod. The Frankfort native scored 509 points,
averaging 14.97, and blistered the nets against then No. 9 Shawnee State for a
career-high 34 points. She shot 39.6 percent from the field and 37.4 percent
from three-point range.
Angie Lawrence also received some postseason recognition
following her performance at the NAIA Women's Basketball National Tournament
presented by Kentuckytourism.com.
The freshman scored in double figures the first three
games of the tournament, including a career-high 27 points in the Tigers Elite
Eight game against Rogers State. She also had career highs in field goals made
(7), free throws made (11) and free throws attempted (13).
Both teams went deep into the postseason, representing
Georgetown well. The men advanced to the Elite Eight for 15th time, while the
women made it to the Fab Four for the first time ever.
