Georgetown College men's basketball was looking to finish the first trek through Mid-South Conference play unscathed, but Cumberland University made nothing easy Saturday. The No. 2 Tigers (19-1, 7-0 MSC) weathered an 8-0 run that put the Phoenix up early in the second half to come away with the win.

Darion Burns led the way with 13 points in a 64-60 win in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym to stay undefeated in league play.

"Proud of our guys for being able to pull through and get the win," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "It certainly wasn't pretty.

"We missed a lot of shots that we know we will make, and we must improve at the foul line."

Georgetown College women's basketball flexed its muscle against No. 14 Cumberland University. The Tigers (5-15, 1-6 MSC) are known for defense and rebounding under coach Andrea McCloskey. GC kept CU bottled up for most of the day and outrebounded them. Unfortunately, offense was hard to come by against the quick Phoenix (14-5, 3-4) in a 60-45 loss.

Cumberland is averaging 68 points per game and shooting a 21st best in the nation 42.3 percent from the field. Georgetown held its opponents to its third lowest points all season and kept CU to just 38 percent from the field.
