Women's Basketball - Sat, Dec. 15, 2012
Tigers' four-point lead late slips away as Robert Morris (10-5) wins 84-79 in overtime Saturday in Portsmouth, Ohio. In the Shawnee State University Classic, Georgetown College women's basketball team held a five-point edge at halftime. RMU came out hot and the Tigers need a rally to take control late. Then with a four-point edge, GC (4-4) fouled inside the final minute and the old fashion three-point play gave the Eagles life
The Tigers hit one-of-two from the foul line and then a bucket for RMU with .3 seconds remaining sent the game into overtime. GC hopped out to a quick three-point advantage on an Andrea Howard shot, but could not overcome the sharpshooting of Robert Morris down the stretch. Lindsay Fultz led with 17 points, Howard had 15, Haley Armstrong 12 and Kourtney Tyra 11. Celeste Jones led five Eagles in double figures with a game-high 18 points. Uniqua Hampton finished with 17, Danisha Cole 12, Aubrey Sparrey 11 and Ashley Segers 10. GC returns to action noon Sunday against Daemen.
