Women's Basketball - Tue, Jan. 14, 2014
Georgetown College women's basketball finished the week road sweep Saturday with a 72-63 win in Springfield. The No. 8 Tigers improve to 10-3 on the season and 4-1 in Mid-South Conference play. Georgetown sits a half game back of No. 5 Campbellsville University (14-2, 5-1), which has yet to play its travel partner yet in the first half of league action. However, head-to-head, the Tigers hold the edge over CU.
Lizza Jonas followed up her double-double against Campbellsville with a double-double against St. Catharine. The senior had a game-tying high 18 points and a game-high 14 rebounds to lead the charge. Kourtney Tyra was the lone other double-digit scorer with 18 as well. The rest of the scoring was balanced for GC. Haley Armstrong was a spark off the bench with nine points. Teonia McCune tied her career-high with eight points. Andrea Howard had seven points, while Jessica Foster and Devanny King added six.
Tyra dished out a game-high seven assists, giving her 75 – 12th nationally for total assists. She is averaging a league-leading 5.8 assists per game – 6th nationally. She has 546 all-time at Georgetown, putting her more than 100 ahead of the next closest Tiger.
With Jonas' third and final steal of the game, she tied Tammy Catron for 10th on the all-time steals list at Georgetown. She has 184 in 109 games played. If the senior swipes three more this week, she will move into sole possession of 9th place on that list.
GC returns to action 6 pm Thursday hosting University of Pikeville (7-9, 2-3). The last time these two tangled in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, the Bears pulled off the upset.
