Gilbert, Bell Get 1,000 Career Points in the Same GameGilbert, Bell Get 1,000 Career Points in the Same Game

Georgetown College Basketball improved their standings in the Mid-South Conference with two wins over Pikeville College on Thursday.

In the first game of the doubleheader, the women's team nabbed its first conference win of the year with a 91-56 win over the Bears.  It was a special night as two Tigers reached 1,000 points in their careers on the same night.  First up it was junior Jayme Gilbert who lacked seven points and reached the milestone with a three-pointer just 12 minutes into the game.  In the second half, it was senior Ashley Bell's turn when she also hit a three-pointer to leap over the 1,000 point mark.

Senior point guard Katie Filiatreau was on a shooting spree, hitting six of seven three-pointers in the first half.  She hit another in the second, just shy of tying the Georgetown College record of eight three-pointers in a game held by Nealy Thomas.  Filiatreau ended with a game-high 27 points.  The Tigers improved to 12-9 and 1-2 on the year.

In the nightcap, the No. 3 men's team moved to 18-1 on the year and a perfect 3-0 in conference play with an 84-58 win.  Georgetown was able to hold Pikeville to 37 percent shooting on the night, averaging 51.4 percent coming into the game.  The Tigers shot 52.5 percent and were led by Vincent Crutcher's 15 points.  Maurice Pearson, who had his first start as a Tiger, added 12, as did freshman Vic Moses.

Pikeville's Josh Samarco led the Bears' scoring with 20 as they fell to 12-7 on the year.

Up next the Tigers travel to West Virginia Tech on Saturday.  The women will tipoff at 2:00 followed by the men at 4:00.  Both games will be broadcast on 101.5 FM and on georgetowncollegeathletics.com
