Women's Basketball - Mon, Mar. 4, 2013
Georgetown College women's basketball hit a dry spell at the most unfortunate time Saturday in the semifinals of the Mid-South Conference tournament. The No. 16 Tigers (22-9) were in control early in the second half when No. 18 Campbellsville University (24-8) found a rhythm and clawed back. CU picked up the 78-71 win in the rubber match game.
Kourtney Tyra hit a three for a 14-point edge, but it was all Campbellsville from there. CU scored 23 of the next 32 points to tie the game at 58 and the never looked back. The dagger came a few minutes later as Campbellsville was on a 5-0 run with the shot clock winding down. With one second remaining the ball was tipped out of bounds. Coach Ginger Colvin substituted sharp-shooter Courtney Clifton. The senior came off a set of screens caught the inbound from Katie Allen and hit nothing but net from deep. It gave CU an eight-point lead, 66-58, and the game got only as close as six points again.
Tyra led GC with 18 points, while Devon Golden chipped in with 16, Devanny King 15 and Lizza Jonas 10. Golden, with her second three of the day, also broke into the 1,000-point club at Georgetown. She currently has 1,011 points in her four seasons as a Tiger. She also has 760 rebounds, putting her sixth all-time on the boards.
Clifton led all-scorers with 25 points, while Allen had 19 and Mackenzie Lee 12.
Georgetown now waits to learn its national tournament fate. Final rankings should be known sometime Tuesday and seeding, opponent, game time and game date will hopefully be known Wednesday.
