Women's Basketball - Fri, Dec. 21, 2012
Georgetown College women's basketball is taking advantage of the winter break to play teams it may otherwise never have the chance to. The Tigers (5-5) traveled to Puerto Rico for a pair of games in paradise. However, the tournament has been a little unpredictable. Georgetown was scheduled for a game Wednesday and a game Friday.
However, upon arrival found out the team would be playing Thursday and Friday and the order of its opponents were reversed.
The Tigers rolled with it and battled NCAA Division II Puerto Rico Bayamon Thursday afternoon. GC struggled from the field making just 18 shots, three from deep, and 18 free throws in a 73-57 loss.
"In games and situations such as these, what I hope we take away from it is the experience," said Tiger coach Andrea McCloskey. "We are playing very good competition, and we are playing out of our routine. That will be the exact situation when postseason rolls around. If we come together as a team and learn from moments such as these, then it is worth it."
Lindsay Fultz led the offensive attack with 16 points, while Lizza Jonas had 12 and Devon Golden 10. Kourtney Tyra took charge on the board with 11 rebounds and dished out five assists.
The Tigers return to action 1 pm Friday against Puerto Rico Mayaguez.
