Women's Basketball - Thu, Feb. 3, 2011
The road has been very unkind to Georgetown College women's basketball team and continued to be so Thursday night in Pikeville.
The Tigers (7-16, 3-9 Mid-South Conference) fought hard, with a blazing hot second half, but could not overcome a slow start in a 76-73 loss to the Bears (16-7, 6-6). GC trailed 11 at the break, 36-25, but came out of halftime ready to end a nine-game road skid.
The team shot 50 percent in the final 20 minutes and clawed within two late, 59-57, but was unable to pick up its first win outside of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
Devon Golden and Ashley Prince led the offensive charge with 16 points apiece, while Kourtney Tyra had another solid night with 15 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Jessica Waddle rounded out the double-digit scorers for the Tigers with 11 points.
Megan Mosley led all-scores with 25 for Pikeville, while Lauren Potts finished with 14 and Whitney Compton and Brogan Conley added 10 each.
Georgetown had a chance late in the game when the Bears turned the ball over. However, with seven seconds remaining GC could not get a shot off.
The Tigers stay on the road in a big conference battle Saturday against newcomer University of Virginia College at Wise. The Cavaliers (9-11, 3-9) are coming off a huge seven-point win over Shawnee State Thursday evening. SSU had claimed the top spot in the league this past week with a big win over then No. 3 Campbellsville University.
