Men's Basketball - Fri, Mar. 30, 2012

Georgetown College men's basketball received multiple honors at the postseason Mid-South Conference banquet.

Redshirt-sophomore Russ Middleton earned MSC All-Academic, earning a 3.25 grade point average or higher with a sophomore or higher standing.

Senior Maurice Pearson earned First-Team All-Conference, while senior Johonne Hamilton, junior Garel Craig and senior Jordan DeMercy were named to the honorable mention team.

Pearson led the team with 15.2 points per game and had 264 total rebounds. He averaged 8.5 boards a game, tying for team-high with DeMercy. However, the center played in eight more games than the power forward who grabbed a total of 195 rebounds. He also shot a league-best 63.2 percent from the field, which was also fourth best in the nation.

Pearson finished his career for the Orange & Black with 1,005 points, making him the 48th player all-time to score at least a 1,000.

Hamilton averaged 10.9 ppg, serving as a spark and leader off the bench for first-year coach Chris Briggs. His 64 steals in 35 games, a 1.8 average, was sixth best in the conference. It also gave him 178 on his career at Georgetown, to move to sixth on the Tigers all-time steals list.

Craig was the team's second-leading scorer with 12.3 ppg. He averaged just more than three assists per game with a team-high 111. The junior had 123 rebounds, the most from any Tiger guard.

DeMercy joined the team after the Christmas break and became a solid contributor. He started out hot with three double-doubles and finished averaging 11.3 ppg and his 8.5 rpg was tied with Pearson for team-high.
