Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 1, 2014
Georgetown College women's basketball team had not lost since Jan. 2 to Shawnee State University. The No. 6 Tigers hit the road looking to get that one back and extend the longest win streak under coach Andrea McCloskey.
However, the Bears had everything clicking to take the Mid-South Conference sweep 70-63. Georgetown (15-4, 9-2 MSC) sees its eight-game winning streak end in Portsmouth, Ohio as for the second time this week it struggled in the opening half. SSU (11-11, 4-7) opened up a 16-point halftime edge, 40-24. GC rallied from 21 down Thursday, but did not have enough magic on the Bears' Homecoming.
Jessica Foster did all she could, tallying a career and game-high 17 points. The Bears were paced by Alannah Sheets and Priscilla Santos, each with 16, while Diane Abbady also chipped in with 14.
The Tigers big three managed just eight points total in the first 20 minutes. Lizza Jonas, who was held scoreless, started strong in a 16-3 run by the Tigers to get within three. However, that is as close as GC ever got.
Andrea Howard finished with 12, Devanny King 11, Kourtney Tyra nine, Jonas and Teonia McCune each had six and Mykal Farris had two.
Georgetown went 3-1 on this two-week road swing and returns to the friendly confines of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym 6 pm Thursday hosting St. Catharine (3-13, 1-9).
