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.
