Men's Basketball - Sun, Mar. 5, 2017

Georgetown College men's basketball needed another rally in Saturday's Mid-South Conference tournament semifinals. However, No. 8 University of Pikeville weathered the two furious runs to hold off No. 12 Tigers (23-7) from having a chance to defend the 2016 title. The Bears (26-6) won 74-67.

GC got it within three with the ball just less than 30 seconds left. A quick inbound, corner attempt by Georgetown came up short. The Tigers got the rebound, but came up short one more time. UPike made four free throws in the final 17 seconds to lock up a meeting with Life University in Sunday's finals.

Quan Poindexter led the way with a game-high 23 points and a game-high 12 rebounds. Chris Coffey had several authoritative stick-back dunks and finished with 15 points. Troy Steward had 13 points and Darion Burns finished with 10.

GC found itself in a double-digit hole early, but rallied and a 9-0 run spanning both halves tied the game at 36. Pikeville responded with a 13-0 run to regain control. The Bears continued to lead by multiple possessions until just less than two minutes left. The Tigers went on a 6-0 spurt to be down three, caused a turnover in the press and seemed poised for another late game tournament heroics.

Georgetown now waits to hear its postseason bid Wednesday.
