Georgetown College women's basketball scored first and never looked back. The No. 7 Tigers (12-3) improved to 6-1 in the Mid-South Conference with a home win Saturday over Bluefield College (7-8, 2-5), 98-77.
Andrea Howard, off an assist from Devanny King, scored the first two on the way to tying her career-high of 34. It was another fast start for GC, scoring seven unanswered before the Rams found the rim.
Bluefield pulled within a single possession four times in the first half, but Georgetown's lead ballooned to double-digits with the first basket in the second half. It got as large as 30, 94-64, late before the final margin of victory.
Five Tigers reached double figures and with a free throw by Tena Johnson late in the second half, everyone that played scored.
Kourtney Tyra chipped in with 15 points, Lizza Jonas 13, Devanny King 12 and Jessica Foster provided a lift off the bench with 10. Teonia McCune continued to be a force inside the paint. She had four blocks to go with her four points. Haley Armstrong had seven points, Mykal Farris two and Johnson one.
