Women's Basketball - Sat, Dec. 14, 2013
Second half runs burned the No. 5 Tigers (5-2) in a 53-50 setback to Grace College (6-7) Saturday at the Shawnee State Classic. The Lancers used a 14-4 burst out of the lockerroom to tie the game and a 9-5 advantage inside the final six minutes for the win.
The Tigers had a quick turnaround, less than 18 hours after a win over NAIA Division II defending national champions Indiana Wesleyan. The first half was slow-going, but things seemed to be in Georgetown's favor with a 30-20 lead at the break.
Grace's Allison Kauffman led the charge out of half with nine of the 14 early run, finished with 16 of her game-high 21 in the final 20 minutes.
Lizza Jonas led Georgetown with 13 points, while Devanny King chipped in 10. Kourtney Tyra had eight, Jessica Foster and Andrea Howard each with six, Emilie Ziese and Haley Armstrong with two each and Mykal Farris rounded it out with one.
Georgetown returns to action 2:30 pm Dec. 19 against Menlo in the Hoops N Surf Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii.
