Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 12, 2011

Georgetown College women's basketball team picked up a big conference win Saturday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym over Shawnee State University.

The Tigers (9-16, 5-9 MSC) hit 57.1 percent from the field in the first half, 50 percent from three-point range, building a 21-point cushion. Despite a run by the Bears (19-7, 10-4) clawing back within nine twice in the second half, Georgetown refused to let this game slip away.

Devon Golden scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting. She was joined as the team leader by Kourtney Tyra and Lindsay Fultz with 16 each, while Gina Beining added 14 points.

The Tigers raced out to a 49-28 halftime lead and when Ashley Prince opened the second half with a three, things looked to be well under control. However, the second best team in the conference right now did not shy away from the challenge. SSU mounted a 24-12 run in the first eight minutes of the second half - four points shy of doubling its first half total.

Over the next seven minutes, though, the Tigers pushed back out to a 20-point lead, 81-61, and held on down the stretch.

Georgetown returns to action 6 p.m. Thursday at University of the Cumberlands.
