No lead is safe in a Mid-South Conference rivalry game. Georgetown College men's basketball hit the road trying to avoid a season sweep against Lindsey Wilson College. The No. 2 Tigers were unconscious for most of the game, eventually opening a 20-point second half lead, 51-31.

However, the Blue Raiders chipped away to be back within seven until Tony Kimbro came to life. The senior made a steal and went the distance. This started an 8-0 run that put the game back into a comfortable margin the rest of the way. Georgetown splits the series with an 87-63 victory, improving to 22-3 on the season and 10-3 in the league. Lindsey Wilson falls to 15-9, 5-6.

"This was a very good team win," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We came out focused and ready, set the tone from the beginning."

Without the services of Deondre McWhorter, out for a team rule violation, it was Kimbro and Noah Cottrill picking up the slack. Cottrill finished with a game-high 22 points with five three-pointers and Kimbro had 21 with four threes. Troy Steward was key in the first half with seven of his 12 points.

Georgetown College women's basketball was on a five-game winning streak largely anchored in defensive focus and limiting turnovers. In the second quarter Thursday, however, Lindsey Wilson College keyed in on seven Tiger miscues to blow open a close game. The No. 22 Blue Raiders blistered the nets at 61.9 percent in the 10 minutes before the half and rolled to a huge 92-64 win in Columbia, Ky. in the Mid-South Conference tilt.

GC falls to 12-12 and 7-5 in league play, while LWC improves to 20-4 and 6-3.

The home team won the second quarter, 30-13, and continued that trend with a 20-14 edge in the third quarter. Georgetown was a chilly 6-of-28 in the middle 20 minutes. Remove the second and third quarters, GC was 15-of-28 from the field.

Georgetown College volleyball coach Nick Griffin continues to ink high caliber athletes to fortify the accomplishments and strides the team has made in the past four seasons.

Joining his 2016 freshmen class is Lindsay Leick. The setter from Bishop Brossart High School has been a four-year starter and two-year captain for coach Pennie Wiseman.

"Lindsay is a fantastic addition to our 2016 class," Griffin said. "Her high volleyball IQ and feel for the game from the setting position will make us better. She's flown under the radar for most of her career because of playing for small clubs, but she's eager and ready for this challenge. Lindsay is another high character player as well, who will be one of our hardest workers and will push others to make them better. I love how she already bleeds Orange and Black."

Deondre McWhorter became the first Georgetown player ever to score 1,800-plus points, grab 1,000-plus rebounds and block 200-plus shots. He eclipsed the final two this past week in a win over No. 4 University of Pikeville.

The senior post has helped the No. 2 Tigers to a 21-3 mark thus far and his 17.3 points and 11 rebounds per game averages this past week earned him Mid-South Conference Player of the Week honors. It is the second such honor for McWhorter in his four years at Georgetown.

Milligan College exploded in a third of an inning against Roman Davalos and avoided the weekend sweep. The Buffaloes (1-3) scored five runs, adding the winning runs in the third on their way to an 8-5 victory.

The Tigers (3-1) coach Micah Baumfeld had seen enough as three hits had plated five earned runs with just one out in that span. He pulled his starter and it was pitch-by-committee from there. He used a total of five pitchers, the final two each throwing two full innings.

Georgetown got as close as a run when the visitors scored twice in the second and twice more in the third. Unfortunately, Milligan responded back with two of its own in the bottom of the third.
