Women's Basketball - Mon, Jan. 9, 2017
Georgetown College women's basketball tallied a win in the Mid-South Conference Monday in convincing fashion. The Tigers (5-12, 1-3) used a 24-2 run to break away from Life University and never look back. Three players finished with a double-double as the team was back in the friendly confines of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym for the first time in over a month.
Emilie Ziese returned from injury with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Shakela Smith chipped in with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Justus Martin had 11 points and 11 rebounds.
The Running Eagles (3-16, 0-6) cut a once 14 point first quarter lead to six, 20-14, when coach Andrea McCloskey had seen enough. She called a timeout and refocused the team for the big run.
In that stretch, Ziese, Smith and Kaci Currens had a big hand in the points. Then down the stretch in the second half it was hustle plays and a soft touch from Martina Lytle that kept LU at bay. Lytle finished with eight and Currens seven.
Georgetown returns to action 6 pm Thursday at Campbellsville University.
