Men's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 12, 2011
Georgetown College men's basketball team were on fire from deep all game long, hitting nine threes each half on a way to a 106-68 win over Shawnee State University Saturday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. The team finished 18-of-36 from deep.
Vincent Crutcher had seven of those second half threes on his way to a game-tying high 23 points. The senior from Louisville had no points at the half, taking no shots, but went 8-of-12 in the final 20 minutes, including 7-of-11 from deep.
The No. 9 Tigers (23-3, 12-2 Mid-South Conference) exacted revenge against the conference newcomers Bears (8-17, 3-11) which won the first of the season series in early January, 78-71.
Georgetown opened a 50-34 halftime advantage behind the sharp shooting of Eddie Gray, Rodney Haddix, Matt Walls and Dillon Boggs - all had two threes at the break. Tyrone Shelley had the other three in the early going and scored all of his 13 points in the first half.
Haddix finished with 14, Boggs 13 and Aaron Morris added 11 points.
Georgetown returns hits the road to play University of the Cumberlands 8 p.m. Thursday in Williamsburg.
