Men's Basketball - Tue, Feb. 18, 2014
Georgetown College men's basketball showed toughness on the road, finishing a two-game trip with a win Monday over Bluefield College. The No. 19 Tigers improve to 10-5 in the Mid-South Conference.
GC trailed by five at the break, but rallied and cruised to a double-digit win, 84-73. Dominique Hagans led the charge with 27 points on 9-of-17 shooting. Monty Wilson shrugged off a slow start to finish with 22 points, doing most of his damage from the foul line – 11-of-12.
Deondre McWhorter chipped in with 13 points, while Montavious Marc was dominant on the glass with a team-high 12 rebounds.
Marc added seven points, while Trenity Burdine had six, Noah Cottrill had five, and Corey Washburn and Russ Middleton finished with two each.
The Tiger defense clamped down in the final 20 minutes, winning the second half 55-39. Bluefield (12-10, 5-9) had 20 turnovers, while GC rebounded from an off night Saturday to commit just 12 turnovers.
With just two weeks left in league play, the Tigers and Rams are on pace to meet in the postseason. Georgetown sits in second with three games left, while Bluefield is seventh with four games to play. Only the top eight teams advance to Lebanon, Tenn.
Tigers return to action 8 pm Thursday against Lindsey Wilson College (13-13, 4-10).
