Georgetown College men's basketball suffered its first set back of the season Thursday in the Mid-South Conference season-opener. The No. 3 Tigers (4-1, 0-1) played in a see-saw game against Bluefield College (2-1, 0-1) before controlling in the final minutes for a 96-89 win in Bluefield.

He was 10-of-14 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 from the line. Allan Thomas continued his sharp-shooting ways with 24 points. McWhorter and Thomas also grabbed a team-high eight rebounds. Mychal Parker had 16 points off the bench and Monty Wilson poured in 14 to round out the double-digit scorers for GC.
The Rams had three players with 20-plus points in Kearsten Marion (26), Byron Carpenter (24) and Andrew Wilson (21). Devin Page also scored 13 points. BC got hot from deep, hitting 12-of-18 from three-point range, which helped to stall the Tigers on several attempts to gain control of the game. Overall BC shot 56 percent from the field and 67 from three-point range.
