Men's Basketball - Tue, Oct. 30, 2012
Georgetown College men's basketball team found its
chemistry midway through the first half and then dominated in the final 20
against Miami University Hamilton to open the season. The Harriers managed just
10 points in the second half as the Tigers (1-0) rolled 102-32 at Davis-Reid
Alumni Gym Tuesday.
"It's always good to start 1-0," said GC coach
Chris Briggs. "We had a strong talk at halftime about our intensity and taking
care of the basketball. I thought we responded well."
The Tigers fullcourt pressure forced 16 turnovers in the
second half, as MUH had just seven points through the first 16 minutes. Marcus
Moses hit a three in the final four minutes to put the Harriers into
double-digits for the final 20.
Deondre McWhorter, who took a redshirt his first year at
Georgetown, exploded in the post for 21 points and excited the crowd with his
rim-rattling dunks. Vic Moses, in his return from a medical redshirt, scored 19
points in 20 minutes and grabbed nine rebounds.
Mychal Parker made his Georgetown debut for 18 points,
while DJ Townsend, Allan Thomas and Monty Wilson scored 12 each.
"That's the balance we like," Briggs said. "We had solid
contributions inside and out and off the bench. Garel (Craig) had 10 assists,
distributing the ball in his natural point guard position."
The Tigers had 22 assists on their 41 baskets. Montavious
Marc started his GC career with 14 rebounds to lead the team in a dominating
performance on the boards. The team outrebounded MUH 61-26.
Georgetown was 52.6 percent from the field, 37.5 from
deep, while holding the Harriers to 21.4 percent shooting and 8.3 percent from
