Men's Basketball - Tue, Jan. 29, 2013
Georgetown College men's basketball team rebounded from a tough loss at Shawnee State for a 74-68 win. The Tigers (15-5, 7-5 Mid-South Conference) came out slow against the RedStorm (7-14, 3-9) but kicked it into gear for the final 20.
"We are a second half team," said junior Monty Wilson.
The Decatur, Ill. native scored 20 of his game-high 25 points in the second half. The next highest scorer was Mychal Parker with nine, coming in a first half burst that really put Georgetown back into the game.
GC returns to action 8 pm Thursday in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. The Tigers host Cumberland University, which was a road win that helped them get back on track in conference play earlier this season.
It is the first of four straight home games.
"It will be good to be home for a bit," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We have been on the road for a while it feels like and it's always good to play in front of the home crowd."
Tigers also host No. 25 University of the Cumberlands (17-5, 8-4) Saturday. Game will tip at 4 pm.
