Men's Basketball - Sun, Nov. 7, 2010
One game in the books and Georgetown College men's basketball team has already eclipsed the century mark.
The Tigers (1-0) started the season off with a bang, handing NCAA Division II Davis & Elkins a 109-66 defeat Sunday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
Six players reached double figures, led by junior transfer Aaron Morris. The former Madison Central standout had 19 points and eight rebounds in his first game as a Tiger. Point guard Eddie Gray also chipped in 16 points and six assists with just one turnover.
The Senators' Anthony Dunston led all scorers with 25 points on eight-of-15 shooting, including three-of-five from three-point range.
The Tigers roared out to a 22-3 lead in the first nine minutes and never looked back. GC coach Happy Osborne was able to play 10 guys and all but one had double digit minutes.
Morris came off the bench and played 20-plus minutes. He was eight-of-10 from the floor and three-of-seven from the free throw line.
Tyrone Shelley, 14 points, Vic Moses, 10 points, Vincent Crutcher, 11 points, and Johonne Hamilton, 10 points, were the other double figure scores, while Rodney Haddix had nine and Dillon Boggs finished with eight.
GC returns to action in the 2nd Annual Andrew Elswick Classic 8 p.m. Friday against Mid-South Conference foe St. Catharine.
The Patriots were preseason third in the conference coaches' poll with one first place vote, while the Tigers were tabbed the favorite to win the MSC. The winner of that game advances to the 8 p.m. championship game Saturday against the winner of the Campbellsville University/Southern New Orleans game. The losers of both games will meet in the consolation round at 4 p.m.
