Gilbert and Filiatreau lead Georgetown to second round

Pikeville, Ky. - The Lady Bears of Pikeville College were downed by Georgetown College 83-51 in the second game of the 2008 Mid-South Conference Women's Basketball Tournament presented by Community Trust Bank at the Eastern Kentucky Expo Center. The Lady Bears, who finished the 2007-2008 campaign 6-24 overall (1-9 MSC) got that lone league win, interestingly enough, when they knocked off Georgetown 65-54 back on February 21st but today was a different story.

The opening minutes of play saw Georgetown College capitalize on Lady Bear mistakes as the Tigers used three-point goals by Kim Ingle and Ashley Bell as well as an old fashioned three-point play by Jayme Gilbert to build a 16-4 lead early on.

Alice Daniel tried to keep the Bears close as her basket trimmed the lead to 19-8 with 12:50 remaining, but the Tigers responded with a 7-0 run that included baskets by Slonim, Chandler, and Prince and quickly stretched the lead to 26-8 and never looked back.

Pikeville College tried to hang around using Lauren Potts' and Whitney Compton's 11 points each, but couldn't make that big run to get back to within striking distance. The Bears did force Georgetown into 21 turnovers but just did not convert them into many points.

Georgetown did. The Lady Tigers turned 26 Pikeville College turnovers into 30 points and knocked down 10 three-point baskets as well. Coach Susan Johnson's squad was led by Jayme Gilbert's and Katie Filiatreau's 20 points each. Georgetown, who improves to 21-9, will face the University of the Cumberlands in tomorrow's 3:00pm contest with that winner earning the right to play in Monday's championship game.
