Men's Basketball - Sat, Nov. 9, 2013
A rocky start was erased with a second half effort more up to standards Saturday as Georgetown College men's basketball stayed undefeated.
The Tigers (4-0) erased an early eight-point deficit and extended a narrow halftime lead for the 102-68 win over Miami University Middletown.
"I was very pleased with the second half effort and intensity, and especially the unselfishness," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We have a very special group if they play with heart and intensity consistently."
The top team in the NAIA held a six-point advantage at the break, mainly fueled by three defensive stops – forcing the Thundercats into a pair of turnovers and a block and rebound – all of which lead to easy Tiger points.
Georgetown continued that clamp down defense in the second half and translated 12 turnovers into buckets, while holding MUM to just 31 points total in the second half.
Another Tiger led the way in scoring tonight as Jaylen Daniel exploded for 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting. Dominique Hagans added 13, Noah Cottrill 12, Joe Caldwell 11 and Montavious Marc 10.
Georgetown returns to action 6 pm Friday hosting Olivet Nazarene in the Jim Reid Classic.
