Women's Basketball - Sat, Nov. 23, 2013
Andrea Howard hit a jumper with 6:32 showing in the first half that pushed her over the 1,000-point mark for her career. The senior would tally a game-high 26 points as Georgetown College women's basketball picked up the win over Indiana University Southeast.
The No. 4 Tigers (4-1) have struggled a bit offensively as of late, but came out on fire in the 82-63 win.
Host IUSE (4-2) never knew what hit them. From the opening tip, Georgetown exploded for a 14-0 lead and never looked back. The Grenadiers got as close as two early in the second half, but it was not enough. GC responded as Lizza Jonas scored four of the Tigers 7-0 run, and she assisted on the three, as GC put the game away. The senior finished with career-high 25 points, she scored 24 three times this past season.
The Tigers went 51.9 from the field as three players reached double digits. Devanny King tossed in 12.
Georgetown's defense returned to its feisty self, holding the Grenadiers to just 26.7 percent from the field. The Tigers also won the battle on the boards, 40-37, as King and Jonas each had a game-high seven.
This kicks off five straight road games. Georgetown will not be back home until Jan. 2 showdown with Shawnee State University.
