Men's Basketball - Wed, Nov. 16, 2011
Georgetown College men's basketball played outside the
friendly confines of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym for the first time and got the same
result - a win. The Tigers (6-0) traveled to Park University in Kansas and
picked up a 95-85 victory.
Maurice Pearson led the way with his fourth double-double
with 22 points and 14 rebounds. The rest of the team got 18 boards total.
Four other GC players notched double figures - Garel
Craig had 18, Johonne Hamilton 15 and Anthony Crater and Josh Lockett each had
10. Park's (3-4) Melvin Gatson led all-scorers with 26 points.
Georgetown led by 17 at the half and then weathered the
Pirates 55 point second half effort.
This was the second meeting between these two teams. The
Tigers won the first 82-67.
"It's good to get a road win under our belt," said GC
coach Chris Briggs. "It is always difficult playing on the road. We've been
fortunate to open with five home games this season, but now must grow and
develop over this next period of road tests."
Georgetown stays on the road to open the conference at
University of Pikeville Saturday. Tip is set for 4 pm. The Bears are 5-0 this
season and will play Mountain State University Wednesday evening.
