Women's Basketball - Thu, Feb. 24, 2011
Georgetown College women's basketball took care of business, defending its home court and helping to stay mathematically in the hunt for a sixth seed in the Mid-South Conference Tournament next week in Frankfort.
The Tigers (11-17, 7-10 MSC) struggled early, but found enough offense for a three-point edge at half then cruised to a 69-53 win over University of Rio Grande (18-11, 9-8).
With the win, Georgetown is still just a game back of sixth-place Pikeville College with a game left. If the Tigers win Saturday over West Virginia Tech and the Bears lose to University of Virginia at Wise, GC would hold the tiebreaker and thus the sixth seed.
The importance of the seed is the difference in a play in game or a definite quarterfinal game next Thursday in Frankfort.
Kourtney Tyra led with 14 points, on 6-of-10 shooting, with seven assists and three steals. Devon Golden chipped in with 11 points and Gina Beining had 10 for Georgetown. Bre Davis led the RedStorm with 18 points.
Saturday's game is the last in the regular season and is Senior Day. Georgetown and West Virginia Tech tip at 2 p.m.
