Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 16, 2013
Georgetown College women's basketball picked up the split with Bluefield College Saturday in a fast and furious game. The No. 19 Tigers (18-8, 12-5 Mid-South Conference) got breathing room midway through the second half and never looked back in the 84-72 win over the Rams (16-12, 8-10).
Andrea Howard, who has struggled shooting as of late, got a hot start with knocking down her first three of the game and scoring the Tigers first eight points. The junior went on to lead the team with 20 points and also grabbed eight rebounds. Devanny King put up a double-double, 19 points and 10 rebounds, while Kourtney Tyra found her shooting rhythm from the foul line for 17 points (10-of-12 from free throw line). Devon Golden also chipped in with a double-double for 10 points and 13 rebounds. The senior is seventh all-time now with 718 rebounds for her career.
"You have to be ready to adjust and play how you need to in order to get the win," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "I think we adjusted throughout and really played our style of defense in the second half."
Bluefield was led by Ashley White's 25 points, while Tequelia McNeal added 16 and Monique Robson 10.
GC returns to action with a road swing to Campbellsville University 6 pm Thursday and at Lindsey Wilson 2 pm Saturday.
