Men's Basketball - Sun, Mar. 1, 2015

Georgetown College men's basketball finished up regular season play with an 87-66 loss at Campbellsville University. The No. 7 GC Tigers (24-6, 11-5 Mid-South Conference) led briefly on the road as CU used the deep ball to put the game away.

Corey Washburn scored a basket and a possession later a free throw for a 21-20 edge with 9:09 showing in the first half. Campbellsville finished on 25-10 run for a 14-point halftime lead. CU eventually held a 23-point advantage to claim the second seed in the upcoming MSC Tournament in Frankfort.

GC fell to the third seed and will play Life University 8 pm Friday night to wrap-up quarterfinal play. It is the team's first set of back-to-back losses since opening conference play with a similar road skid. The setbacks bookend a 21-2 run for most of the season.

Women's Basketball - Sun, Mar. 1, 2015

Georgetown College women's basketball finished off the regular season Saturday at Mid-South Conference rival Campbellsville University.

No. 4 Campbellsville University (27-2, 12-2) opened with a big run on its Senior Day and never looked back in the 74-59 win. GC (14-11, 5-9) never quit, but could not overcome the 9-0 deficit. Georgetown got as close as eight points early in the first half when another CU spurt put it out of reach.

"We got a little tight after missing some of our early shots and were pressing ourselves," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "When you play a team such as Campbellsville you can't dig holes like that. But right now all we are looking at is the postseason. We've had a nice season with such a new mix of players. We come together now, we can make a run."

Women's Lacrosse - Sun, Mar. 1, 2015

Georgetown College women's lacrosse faced down the defending national champions Saturday and despite distractions and disruptions remained singularly focused for a second straight win.

The Tigers (2-0) handed preseason No. 1 Robert Morris University – Chicago a 15-8 defeat and never trailed against the National Women's Lacrosse League 2014 winners.

"So many things could have derailed what we were doing," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "I'm extremely proud of the way we adapted all week, prepared and stayed together through the weather distractions. We talk all the time about how character is revealed with how you react to adversity."

Georgetown picked right up where it left off in a 22-0 win Feb. 14. Within the first nine minutes it was 3-0 Tigers; they never looked back.

Football - Sat, Feb. 28, 2015

Georgetown College football coach Bill Cronin has announced he will bring another former Tiger back home to guide the offense. Michael Caba graduated in 2001. The kinesiology major was part of GC's 1999 runner-up finish and the back-to-back titles of 2000 and 2001.

"It is important to me that we bring in someone who understood our system, wanted to use what we have in place and was able to add new wrinkles to our offense," Cronin said. "Michael was the perfect hire. He is a lot like Eddie (Eviston) in his demeanor and approach. He understands the philosophy of our offense and our program. He is very smart and a great guy.

"Thinking about his playing days here, I remember him as one of those players that was totally bought into the program. He continued to be that with the run and shoot offense, which he installed during his time at Alfred State."
