Senior Vic Moses has led the charge thus far for the Tigers. He is averaging a double-double for the three games with 19.7 points and 15 rebounds per game. He is ninth all-time in scoring at Georgetown with 2,080 points. The Lexington native has also corralled 1,039 rebounds in his four seasons. He is returning this year after having to redshirt this past season with an injury suffered during the spring of 2011.
Monty Wilson is averaging 15.3 ppg and Garel Craig 15 ppg during the wins over St. Thomas, No. 4 John Brown and Culver-Stockton.
Georgetown is outrebounding opponents in large part to Moses' efforts thus far in three games on the glass in Kansas City, Mo. The Tigers hold a plus-17 edge for the tournament.
This is the first meeting between the Tigers and the Pilots. Shreveport has the leading scoring tandem through three games. Rodney Milum, 24.3 ppg, and Brandon Davis, 23.7, have helped the LSU-S defeat No. 8 Pikeville, No. 9 Evangel and No. 1 Columbia in route to the Fab Four matchup. Davis is also averaging 13.7 rebounds per game thus far.
Georgetown struggled early to hold down a sharp-shooting Culver-Stockton team. The Cinderella went 11-of-16 from deep in the first half to hold a 52-37 advantage. However, the Tigers clamped down in the second half and will have to emplore that same stinginess tonight in facing Milum. He has hit 16 threes in three games and is hitting 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.
The Pilots are also dominating opponents from the foul line, holding a 71-33 scoring margin advantage during the tournament.
