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.

Getting production from the lead-off spot is extremely helpful in offensive production in baseball. Georgetown College baseball's Robert Longtree provided hit after hit Saturday in the opener of a doubleheader.

The junior went 3-for-4 from the plate with a run scored as the Tigers (3-0) scored four runs in the first four innings, holding on for a 4-3 victory.

It was a two-run fourth that gave the visitors a third straight win over Milligan College (0-3).

Nicholas Lugo reached on a bunt single and eventually came around on Longtree's single added by a bobble by Bryan Soto. Longtree scored the winning run off a Kyle Jackson single.

Georgetown College men's basketball has been on a tear since a three-point overtime loss at home to Lindsey Wilson College in a brutal gauntlet of four road games and six overall in the past 14 days. All games have been Mid-South Conference battles. Unfortunately, Saturday the No. 2 Tigers (21-3, 9-3) ran up against a hungry University of the Cumberlands team.

These two rivals squared off six days ago in Williamsburg, Ky. GC was on fire Monday, but the Patriots were ready to match that pace Saturday in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. UC (16-9, 6-5) hit eight threes and outlasted Georgetown, 86-83. Temjae Singleton hit the dagger from deep with 37 seconds left to put the visitors up 84-81. Troy Steward sliced into the lane for a quick two for GC, but Kelsey Wilkinson hit both free throws with 19 seconds closing out the game.

The foul line can define many basketball games. Saturday Georgetown College women's basketball team, playing its sixth game in 14 days, did not fare well from the charity stripe most of the day against Mid-South Conference rival University of the Cumberlands. However, when it mattered the Tigers (12-11, 7-4) were money. They were 25-of-38 for the game, but 7-of-10 in chipping away a five-point deficit late. None bigger than two with just three tenths left and game tied at 67.

Jessica Foster grabbed an offensive rebound and was fouled from behind. The senior stepped to the line, 2-of-6 to that point, calmly stroked two in for the 69-67 win. Georgetown has won five straight, going 5-1 in this crazy stretch created by the mid-January snow storm.

"It was a hard fought battle," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "We are finally learning how to win in close games."
