Women's Basketball - Thu, Mar. 3, 2011
Georgetown College women's basketball team gave the No. 13 team in the country all they could want in a quarterfinal game of the conference tournament, but came up short in the end Thursday in Frankfort.
The Tigers (12-18) seesawed back and forth with the Blue Raiders of Lindsey Wilson College (23-7) in the first half, trailing by a point after 20 minutes, but a flurry of second half threes and solid post play from Ashley Rainey was too much in the second half. LWC won 74-64 to advance to the semifinals against Shawnee State University.
The game was the final for Susan Johnson on the sidelines of Georgetown College. She coached for 32 years and saw her team give it a great run in her final month. The Tigers were 5-1 in the regular season over the final month to move from a ninth seed in the conference to sixth.
Behind Mandi Boykin, Kourtney Tyra, Mikkah Rogers and Jessica Waddle, GC kept pace with Lindsey in the first half. Tyra stayed hot in the second half to keep things interesting, and hit Boykin for a layup on a run out for a 52-48 game.
However, it was all Blue Raiders from there.
Tyra finished with a game-high 20 points, while Boykin had 14 and Rogers 10. Waddle finished with eight.
