Georgetown College basketball added two Mid-South Conference wins in Saturday's doubleheader with West Virginia Tech.

Women
Sophomore Micah Rogers (Corbin) led her team for the second game in a row as the Tigers beat the Golden Bears 83-39.

Rogers finished with 15 points, 10 in the second half, and was stellar in every statistical category, adding eight assists, five rebounds, two steals and a block. Classmate Jessica Waddle (Ironton, Ohio) added 12 points.

The Golden Bears were paced by Shyla Jones with 11 points and nine rebounds.

Georgetown improved to 11-8 on the year and evened things up in MSC play at 2-2. West Virginia Tech fell to 9-10 on the year and are winless in conference play at 0-4.

Men
Georgetown made a statement with a 99-60 win over West Virginia Tech on Saturday after a disappointing loss at Pikeville on Thursday.

The Tigers found themselves behind 8-4 in the game's first three minutes but followed with a 12-0 run to make it 16-8 and never looked back.

The Tigers had a balanced attack with four players in double figures and were led by Hollis Giles' double-double of 28 points and 12 rebounds. Sophomore Vic Moses (Henry Clay) was a perfect 9 of 9 for 18 points.

"We really looked at this as a must-win in order to stay in the top of the pack in the conference," said Giles. "It was good to play like we can."

Georgetown outrebounded the Golden Bears 51 to 30.

West Virginia Tech was led by guard Darryl Slack's 16 points but he committed seven of his team's 27 turnovers on the day.

Georgetown improved to 15-4 and 3-1 in conference play while West Virginia Tech is now 12-7 and 2-2.

Next Game
MSC play continues this week as Georgetown will travel to St. Catharine for a doubleheader on Thursday (women at 6:00 p.m. followed by the men) and then will host Lindsey Wilson on Saturday.
