Georgetown College men's basketball had an off night. The No. 2 Tigers (17-1, 5-0) trailed by as many as 16 in the first half Thursday against Campbellsville University (9-8, 1-4). GC was even down 14 in the second half and multiple times by a dozen unable to get any closer than seven points. However, Quan Poindexter kept them in it with career-highs in points, 41, and rebounds, 11, allowing time for Troy Steward to come to life. Steward hit three deep threes and a runner in the lane as Georgetown erased a nine-point deficit with six minutes left. Georgetown never trailed again in a 93-87 win in Campbellsville.
Steward was 2-of-13 minus a two minute and three second span late in the game. Following two free throw misses off a technical foul call, the sophomore came to life. He went 4-of-5, including 3-of-3 from three-point range. The run started with a three with six minutes to go and CU up 78-69. Next possession, Chris Coffey had a stick back dunk. Steward's next basket was a runner in the lane, and Georgetown was within two, the closest it had been since midway through the first half.
Georgetown College women's basketball played strong defense early against the seventh-ranked Campbellsville University Lady Tigers. However, a seven-minute stretch early in the second quarter helped the home team open up a double-digit lead and never look back. CU (17-2, 4-1) was led by Emily Fox's 17 points in an 82-53 win Thursday in Campbellsville. GC falls to 5-13, 1-4.
Kennedy Flynn led the visitors with 11 points, while Emilie Ziese chipped in with 10 rebounds and nine points.
Georgetown College cheerleaders will be hosting clinics March 25 and April 8 in preparation for the 2017-18 tryout season. GC will be hosting tryouts on April 15 for its co-ed team.
These clinics, which cost $20 each and include a T-shirt, are open to high school freshmen through seniors, current GC students and any GC transfers. Those high school seniors in attendance may be offered a spot on the 2017-18 Georgetown College cheerleading squad.
Georgetown College volleyball coach Nick Griffin has picked up a mid-year NCAA Division I transfer from East Tennessee State University. Madison Mudd, a freshman defensive specialist, helped the Bucs to a regular season Southern Conference title, but was ready to be closer to home.
"I felt as if I could connect with the team and really make an impact here at Georgetown," Mudd said. "ETSU is in Johnson City, Tenn., which is about five hours from home, so Georgetown also had the added bonus of being less than an hour from Louisville."
The former Mercy High School standout will continue her college and athletic ventures with the Tigers starting in January. For ETSU, Mudd tallied 69 digs in 51 sets for a 1.35 average.
Georgetown College men's basketball had to scrap early and outlast a feisty Life University team Monday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. The two teams came in undefeated in Mid-South Conference play. The 84-74 win puts No. 2 Tigers (16-, 4-0) in the driver's seat for now. The Running Eagles fall to 8-9 and 5-1 in the conference.
Chris Coffey showed his range, stepping out for jumpers several times on his way to 21 points and 11 rebounds. He was 7-of-9 from the floor and 7-of-7 from the free throw line.
