Women's Basketball - Mon, Mar. 10, 2014
Georgetown College women's basketball team suffered a cold span at the worst possible time Sunday in the finals of the 2014 Mid-South Conference Championship presented by GoJohnnyGo 5K/10K Walk/Run.
Devanny King's jumper with 14:23 remaining gave the No. 9 Tigers (21-8) a nine-point edge. GC did not score another field goal over the next 9:31. King broke the skid with a layup at the 4:52 mark and Campbellsville University led 65-56.
Lizza Jonas hit a pair of free throws at the 9:38 mark to put Georgetown ahead by three, 54-51. Those were the only GC points in the almost 10-minute span.
King led the Tigers with 18 points and eight rebounds. Haley Armstrong continued her hot shooting, setting yet another new career-high with 17 points. She was 6-of-9 from the field, including 3-of-5 from deep. She also added five rebounds.
Kourtney Tyra had 15 points and seven assists. Jonas finished with seven points, Andrea Howard six, Jessica Foster four and Teonia McCune one.
Ellen Sholtes led the CU attack with a game-high 20 points. Katie Allen added 14 and Mary Jehlik came off the bench for 12. Kristen Jacob and Hayley Hellyer were important parts of the second half run. Each finished with eight points.
Georgetown will advance to the NAIA Women's National Tournament to be held for the final time in Frankfort, Ky. The selection show will be sometime this week as the Tigers will learn their seed, first round opponent and overall bracket. There will be more information to follow on the Georgetown College athletics website as details about the selection show are known.
