Women's Basketball - Fri, Nov. 9, 2012
Georgetown College women's basketball opened the season
with authority, handing Mid-Continent a 97-45 loss in the 19th Annual Habitat
Classic at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
The No. 6 Tigers (1-0) started to run away with the game
in the final 10 minutes of the first half and never looked back against the
Cougars (2-4). Five GC players reached double-digits, led by Lizza Jonas' 19.
Devanny King had 18, Devon Golden 16, Lindsay Fultz 15 and Haley Armstrong 10.
"This was a good start," said Tiger coach Andrea
McCloskey. "We had balance and played good defense. We hit the boards hard. I
was pleased with the effort for our first game. Now we have another challenge
to think about tomorrow."
GC crashed the boards for a 57-31 edge.
