Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 26, 2011
Georgetown College women's basketball team did what it needed in order to stay in the hunt for a sixth seed, now all the Tigers can do is wait for the results from the Pikeville game.
GC (12-17, 8-10 Mid-South Conference) came into the game a game behind the Bears, but a win over West Virginia Tech, 69-60, leveled the wins with PC with a game to play.
Pikeville was trailing 69-62 with less than five minutes to play to University of Virginia at Wise at the time this article was written. If Wise wins, Georgetown will avoid a play-in game Monday and be automatically qualified for the quarterfinals next week in Frankfort. A Pikeville win means the Tigers will play WVT again Monday at 7 p.m. for the right to play in the quarterfinals.
The Tigers celebrated Senior Day for Emily Drees, Mandi Boykin, Ashley Prince and Jess Slonim. Slonim, injured earlier this season was allowed to start and score two before being removed. Sophomore Kourtney Tyra led the way with 16 points, while Boykin finished with 13 and Lizza Jonas had 11.
The Golden Bears (5-23, 2-16) were led by Amber Tulley's 18 points, while Tori Eagle had 12 and Ashley Blaney 11.
This was also the final regular season home game for veteran Tiger coach Susan Johnson
. In her 32 seasons, she has recorded currently stands at 584-368. She is averaging 18 wins a season with a .613 winning percentage.
