Georgetown College men's basketball team ended the two-game skid Thursday behind a big second half effort against rival University of the Cumberlands, 65-45.
No. 11 Tigers (16-2, 5-1 Mid-South Conference) ran out early in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, but the Patriots (7-7, 3-3) were not going down easily. They battled back to trail 29-25 at the half, and were only down that much because Rodney Haddix connected on a runner in the lane as time was winding down.
Georgetown opened things up early in the second half and never looked back, outscoring its opponent 36-20 in the final 20.
Jared Cunningham led Cumberlands with 10 points, while Tanner Jacobs pulled down 12 rebounds.
GC is back in action 4 p.m. Saturday against No. 22 Lindsey Wilson College.
