Early on things seemed to be going well for No. 6 Georgetown College women's basketball team, but Bluefield College got hot and protected their home court Thursday in the Mid-South Conference opener. The Tigers (2-1, 0-1) opened a double-digit lead before the Rams (5-0, 1-0) exploded for a one-point edge heading into the break and an eventual 83-73 win Thursday in Bluefield.
"On the road, in our league is tough," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "Obviously we don't like to lose, but what we need to do is learn from this."
"Our depth was hurt with two starters out," McCloskey said. "But we aren't going to make any excuses. We know with the personnel that we have, we can play with anyone. Bluefield beat us at our own game - rebounding.
"I do believe they are the most underrated team in our conference. They've got so much athleticism and they will only get stronger as the season goes."
The Rams had 16 offensive boards and won the battle 45-33 overall. Teqa McNeal led all-scorers with 32 points, while teammate Ashley White chipped in with 26 - almost 70 percent of the entire BC offensive output.
Lindsay Fultz had a good game with a career-high 19 points, including 4-of-7 from three-point range. Kourtney Tyra had 16 and Lizza Jonas added 13. Haley Armstrong had nine, while Devon Golden and Jessica Foster each had eight.
GC returns to action 6 pm Tuesday at St. Catharine.
