Pikeville (20-11), seeded fourth in the six-team tournament, led 24-18 after freshman Megan Mosley tossed in a three-point shot with 8:43 remaining in the first half.

But from there Georgetown took over, turning a six-point deficit into a nine-point lead. Sophomore Ashley Prince scored seven of her nine points in the 6:42 stretch, which ended when Makaine Huffer nailed a three with 2:01 left. Huffer had five of her nine points in the run.
