Women's Basketball - Fri, Jan. 10, 2014
Georgetown College women's basketball is fueled on its defensive effort – a staple of coach Andrea McCloskey. So when Louisville, Ky. native Teonia McCune wanted to transfer from NCAA Division I Wright State, she seemed a perfect fit.
The long and lean 6-foot-5 post was a shot blocking and rebound machine for Fern Creek High School. She holds the Kentucky high school record for blocks in a game, 18, and her 226 blocks in a season is a school record.
However, McCloskey knew it would be an adjustment period once at Georgetown.
"I always have to remind myself to be patient with the freshmen and while Teonia is technically a sophomore, she is a rookie to this system," the third-year coach said. "She has a great read on the game and we've seen that in the past two games."
In a home win Saturday against University of Rio Grande, McCune swatted eight shots – breaking the school's single-game record set by Megan Gray. She did it once again Thursday in a road victory over No. 5 Campbellsville University. Prior to these two games, McCune had 12 blocks on the season. She now has 28.
Gray set the previous record for the Tigers in a home win Nov. 28, 2006 against Cumberland University. She had six blocks against the Bulldogs. She equaled that in a road loss to Trinity University Jan. 2, 2007.
