Women's Basketball - Sat, Nov. 6, 2010
Georgetown College women's basketball team finished its opening weekend with a perfect record, taking care of Union College 82-61 Saturday in the 17th Annual Habitat Classic at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
Mikkah Rogers and Kourtney Tyra both were one rebound shy of a double-double with 13 points, nine boards and 15 points, nine boards respectively.
"We thrive off the fast break," said GC coach Susan Johnson of her team's 20-point run early in the second half. "Mikkah was again a huge factor."
The Tigers (2-0) took a 45-37 advantage out to a 65-37 one in a stretch of five minutes, which included two technical fouls called on the Bulldogs (1-1).
Union calmed back down and started to hit threes, but could never really pull back into the game.
Scott County native Rebecca Gray led all scorers at the half with 13 points, but GC held the former Miss Kentucky Basketball to only two points in the second half.
"I think we just wore them down," Johnson said. "Last night Cumberland was the more physical team, but I felt we could be more physical tonight against Union. We just try to put ourselves in the best position to win every night."
Anderson County native and redshirt freshman Lindsey Fultz came off the bench to supply a spark throughout the game with a career-high 11 points and eight rebounds. Devon Golden also scored most of her eight points during the 20-0 run.
Gray led Union with 15 points, while Wendi Messer had 11 and Kara Pile chipped in with 10.
Georgetown returns to action in the 2nd Annual Andrew Elswick Classic next Friday and Saturday playing each day at 6 p.m.
