Women's Basketball - Sun, Feb. 24, 2013
The No. 18 Tigers finished off a solid road series in style by blistering the nets Saturday against Lindsey Wilson College. With the 92-74 win Georgetown College women's basketball team locks up second place. The worst the team could do is be in a three-way tie with Campbellsville University and Shawnee State University. Head-to-head GC split with CU and swept Shawnee which should give it the tiebreaker in a three-way tie.
Biggers Sports Center in Columbia, Ky. has not been kind to the Tigers (20-8, 14-5 Mid-South Conference) the past several years. The last time they won there was in 2007-08. But Saturday was another shooting demonstration by Georgetown.
The team finished shooting 50.8 percent from the field, including 12-of-19 from deep. Kourtney Tyra broke out of her shooting slump for a game-tying high 25 points, including five three pointers. Her six assists has her tied for the all-time career assist record at Georgetown with one regular season game remaining.
Andrea Howard also got things rolling, scoring 19 points, hitting 2-of-3 from deep. Devanny King chipped in with 13 points and six rebounds, while Lizza Jonas had 11 points and five rebounds, giving her 503 for her career at Georgetown.
Devon Golden finished one point shy of double figures, scoring nine points and grabbing a team high seven.
For LWC it was the same story it has been all season. Senior Ashley Rainey led the way with 25 points and 14 rebounds and Jasmine Brimm had 22 points. These two have carried the load but have trouble finding balance from the rest of their team.
GC returns to actin 6 pm Monday on senior night against St. Catharine. The Tigers will honor Golden and Lindsay Fultz from the women's team as well as six cheerleaders before the women's game.
