Women's Basketball - Thu, Dec. 2, 2010
SPRINGFIELD , Ky. - Georgetown College women's basketball team trimmed the deficit to three several times in the second half Thursday against Mid-South Conference foe St. Catharine, but could never get any closer in a 59-51 loss.
The Tigers dropped their fourth straight and fifth of their last six after struggling for most of the game. GC (4-5, 0-1 MSC) scored just 29 points in the first 27 minutes of the game, but a flurry of offense was not enough to beat the Patriots (5-4, 1-0) on the road.
It was the opening of conference play and the first game back for sophomore point guard Kourtney Tyra. She scored four points in limited action.
Emily Drees came off the bench for 11 points, while Gina Beining and Lindsey Fultz added 10 apiece. Danielle Brown led all-scorers with 18 points, while Courtney Milam chipped in with 14.
St. Catharine led 26-21 at half and weathered some feisty Tiger full court pressure to pull out the win.
Georgetown returns to action Saturday on the road against Campbellsville.
In other action around the conference, Lindsey Wilson picked up a win over MSC newcomer University of Virginia College at Wise, Rio Grande beat West Virginia Tech and Cumberlands beat Pikeville.
