Women's Basketball - Mon, Feb. 13, 2017

Georgetown College has a new sharp-shooter at the top of the record list. Sophomore Shelby Beam hit 10 three-pointers in a game this past Saturday, breaking the Tigers' men's and women's records for makes in a single game.

Neeley Thomas was the previous record holder on the women's side with eight makes in a game during the 2002-03 season. Russ Chadwell held the record on the men's side with nine makes in a game during the 1992-93 season. Both players are now members of the GC Athletic Hall of Fame.

"I'm really proud of Shelby for breaking this record," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "She has really been putting in the extra time in the gym. All her hard work has really paid off."

Beam went 10-of-16 from deep, added two makes from inside the arc and was 6-of-9 from the foul line. She finished with a new-career high 40 points, eight points shy of tying the most points scored in a game by a GC female player. The men's in-game record is 51.

Her total tied her for the most points scored in a single-game by a Mid-South Conference player this season and ties her for third on the national level.

The Arab, Ala. native was four makes shy of tying the national record set by Brescia's Julie Whitfill in 2015. Whitfill went 14-of-31 in that game from behind the three-point line.

Beam was named MSC Player of the Week.
