Men's Basketball - Thu, Jan. 23, 2014

Georgetown College men's basketball has struggled on the road. Five trips outside of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym and the No. 11 Tigers (14-5, 5-3) are 1-4. They fought hard after digging a hole in Lebanon, Tenn. Thursday, but came up short 63-62 to Cumberland University (12-5, 4-4).

Noah Cottrill helped GC early with 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting, including 2-of-4 from deep. No other Tiger hit more than two shots, putting them in a big deficit after the first 20, 39-28. It was going to come down to defensive stops and conversions.

Cottrill finished with 17, including the final five-points that gave them a 62-61 with less than a minute to go.

However, Marquel Hickerson scored a layup with 10 seconds left. Cottrill drove the length of the floor, floated a pass to Dominique Hagans and his shot banked off the glass, hit the front rim and lipped out.

Georgetown did much better from the field in the final 20, hitting 6-of-12 early and 11-of-13 from the foul line to not only erase the deficit but take its first lead. CU responded with a two. Monty Wilson had another set of free throws to make it 53-52 Tigers.

Monty Wilson had 17, Dominique Hagans 12 and Trenity Burdine 11. Jaylan Daniel had three points and Montavious Marc finished with two.

GC returns to action 5 pm Saturday in Columbia, Ky. against Lindsey Wilson College.
