Women's Basketball - Tue, Nov. 16, 2010
Georgetown College women's basketball rebounded from a one-point loss to No. 21 Southern Polytechnic this past weekend for a huge win over No. 14 Trevecca Nazarene.
The Tigers had four players in double-digits as they improved to 4-1 on the season. Mikkah Rogers led with 16 points, while Jessica Waddle and Kourtney Tyra each chipped in with 12 points and Jess Slonim had 10 points.
"I don't even think we knew what they were ranked before the game," Rogers said. "We just knew we beat them there last year and wanted to come out strong here tonight."
Georgetown opened a double-digit lead early in the first half and never looked back. Veteran coach Susan Johnson was able to get minutes for 12 of her players, 10 of which scored.
The Trojans were led by London Elie with 20 points. Rachel Bollinger had 10 points as the two players accounted for 50 percent of TNU's scoring.
Now Georgetown prepares for its third straight weekend tournament in the 17th Annual McDonald's-Central Bank Jim Reid Classic.
On Friday, the Tigers will play University of St. Francis out of Illinois at 6 p.m. and Saturday they have another ranked opponent in Davenport University at 6 p.m.
Davenport and University of the Cumberlands tip the tournament off at 2 p.m. Then Saturday Cumberlands plays St. Francis at 2 p.m.
Georgetown's men will also be in the tournament with an 8 p.m. game Friday against NAIA Division II No. 5 Embry-Riddle. Life University and Texas College play Friday at 4 p.m. The winners meet at 8 p.m. Saturday, while the losers play a consolation game at 4 p.m. Saturday.
