Men's Basketball - Sat, Dec. 14, 2013

The road has been unkind to the defending national champion Georgetown College men's basketball team. For the second straight game the No. 2 Tigers (9-2) hit the road and lost. No. 24 Martin Methodist College (8-3) used a wild surge in the final 20 minutes for a 79-74 victory.

Georgetown trailed by two at the break, but a 21-6 run in the first eight minutes was too much to overcome. The Tigers got as close as one, 73-72, as Noah Cottrill hit a pair of free throws. MMC finished it out on a 6-2 run to seal the game.

GC started with a month of games inside Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, but has spent all of December on the road against ranked opponents. The team will take a break for Christmas and then reopen play 2 pm Dec. 29 against Miami University-Hamilton. That game starts a three-game home stand.

Martin, without three players – two leaders in D'angelo Tucker and Brian Blackman – used a monstrous first half from Robert Boyd. He scored 20 of his team-high 23 points. John Taylor chipped in 15. Kadijon Townsend had 13 and Darius Woods 11.

Monty Wilson had a game-high 24 points, while Deondre McWhorter finished with a double-double 11 points and 10 rebounds. Bopper Stenzel kept Georgetown close in the first half with all 10 of his points off the bench.
