The mountain was too to climb for Georgetown College women's basketball team Saturday afternoon at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. For the first time this season, the No. 6 Tigers (4-2, 2-2 Mid-South Conference) suffered a loss on their home floor. No. 13 Campbellsville University (8-1, 5-0) came in on fire and never let up in a 89-73 win.
"We came out sluggish in the first half," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "We played much better in the second half, and even won the second half. If we could have put two halves together it could have been a very interesting game."
The CU Tigers blistered the nets for 11 threes on 24 attempts (45.8 percent). Georgetown made a 12-0 run to cut the deficit to nine with just less than six minutes to play. The GC Tigers made 10 straight defensive stops in that stretch and seemed poised for another come from behind win, but an offensive foul put life back into CU. Georgetown got within nine points two more times, but never got any closer.
GC returns to the floor 7 pm Tuesday against Bellermine University in Louisville.
NOTES: GC's men lost as well, making it the first time in more than a decade that both men and women lost at home on the same night.
