Men's Basketball - Thu, Feb. 9, 2017

In a battle for the top spot in Mid-South Conference men's basketball, Georgetown College and Life University's game came down to runs, threes and free throws.

The No. 3 Tigers (21-4, 8-3) finished 15-of-22 from the line and allowed 11 three-pointers by the host Running Eagles (14-10, 10-2). Life held on down the stretch as GC played the fouling game for a 70-68 win.

Troy Steward hit Georgetown's fifth three of the night with less than a second remaining, but no one could foul before the final horn sounded for one final offensive attempt.

Quan Poindexter led the Tigers with 17 points, while Steward and Chris Coffey each had 13. Trent Gilbert chipped in with 10. Dalarian Williams had a game-high 19 points. Mike Miller added 13 and Jonathan Beausejour and Ivan Benkovich had 11 and 10 points respectively. Each also hit three three-pointers.

GC won the battle of the boards, 36-27, as Coffey had a game-high 14.

Life opened on an 11-4 run, which the visitors answered with an 11-0 spurt themselves. LU responded with a 13-0 run and then held the lead for good.

It got within a single-possession game multiple times with the closest being 51-50. Life scored the next four points to wrestle momentum back.

Georgetown returns to action 4 pm Feb. 18 hosting Campbellsville University in the final home game of the 2016-17 season.
