Jayme Gilbert and Ausha Weathers got one last time to play the game they love in front of the home crowd Thursday on Senior Night.

Jayme Gilbert, who has been sidelined by an illness for the entire second half of the season, was not going to let Senior Night pass without playing. Gilbert has seen her final season cut short in what GC coach Susan Johnson calls one of her best seasons. And in her last home game she got to score two points before being taken out of the game.

Weathers, a Scott County native, had six points and eight rebounds in her final game at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

But with all the emotion of the day, Georgetown College women's basketball team needed a big second half performance to put away a pesky St. Catharine College team Thursday in Georgetown.

The Patriots (8-21, 2-11 Mid-South Conference) hit seven threes, two apiece by posts Danielle Brown and Reena Haliburton, to take a two-point lead into the break, 39-37.

But GC exploded out of the lockerroom with a 9-1 run and never looked back on its way to a 82-68 win, improving the Tigers record to 18-10 overall and 9-4 in MSC.

Gina Beining led the charge for GC with 15 points as four Tigers finished in double figures. SCC's Brown and Erin Rogers led all-scorers with 21 points.
