Georgetown College men's basketball team raced out of the games Friday in the afternoon cap of day one of the Central Bank Jim Reid Classic. The No. 6 Tigers (9-0) more than quadrupled their opponent in the first eight-plus minutes on the way to a 121-79 victory over Carver Bible College.
"This type of hustle, determination, teamwork and ball control is exactly the foundation Coach Jim Reid built the Georgetown program upon," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "The way we played today honors his legacy and memory. This tournament is always near and dear to our hearts and it is special to have the Reid family come out every year and support us, not just this weekend, but the entire year."
Trent Gilbert, former Scott County High School standout, was a big part of the great start as he went 4-of-6 in that early stretch, 3-of-5 from three-point range. He finished with a game-high 21 points as eight Tigers finished in double figures.
Georgetown College volleyball begins a very familiar trip Sunday. The No. 12 Tigers (29-6) board a charter to Sioux City, Iowa for a 16 hour road trip. However, it's one the team glad takes almost every year. It is the host site for the 2015 NAIA Volleyball National Championship.
"We are thrilled to finish our season in Sioux City for the fourth consecutive year," said GC coach Nick Griffin. "This tournament is one of the most wide open races in a long time, and we look forward to the opportunity in front of us. Our biggest challenge will be cutting down on our unforced errors and making teams beat us."
The tournament has several layers one of which including an opening round match with Point Park University. Georgetown rolled through the Pioneers (17-24) for a chance to compete with 24 other teams in Sioux City. The NAIA has broken the final teams into six pools of four for a round robin segment starting Tuesday.
Georgetown College men's basketball counted a few more blessings Tuesday evening. The No. 6 Tigers picked up their eighth straight win to keep the unblemished mark for the 2015-16 season. Their 112-59 win over Morthland College was the fifth century mark eclipse and third time to break 110.
"It was good for us to be able to work on some things on both ends of the floor tonight," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We have the Central Bank Jim Reid Classic coming this weekend and we needed another tune up.
"I'm proud of the guys for their effort and want to wish all our fans a Happy Thanksgiving."
Winter is knocking on the door and in Kentucky that means it is basketball season. Georgetown College men's and women's teams have seven games under their belts. The No. 6 men's team is 7-0 and preparing for three more games this week including the 22nd annual Central Bank Jim Reid Classic. The women's team is sitting at 3-4, coming off a narrow four-point loss to the No. 1 team in the nation.

Georgetown College volleyball was the heavy favorite, but needed to battle for every point against Point Park University in the 2015 NAIA National Volleyball Championship Opening Round. The Pioneers (17-24) erased eight set points in the first two sets and started strong in the third.
However, the No. 12 Tigers (29-6) proved why they were the top team in the opening round matches in a straight set 25-20, 25-15, 25-19 win.
PPU ended the second set by erasing six set points and ended with an error before opening set three with a 3-0 lead. Georgetown collected itself and responded with 14 of the next 17 points and left nothing in doubt in punching its ticket for the fourth straight year to the final site matches in Sioux City, Iowa.
The tournament continues Dec. 1 with pool play. Three days of that culminates in 12 teams advancing to single-elimination until one champion is left.
