Men's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 13, 2016 at 10:20 PM

Noah Cottrill hit a pressure two-point shot while being fouled. The senior completed the three-point play and Georgetown College men's basketball never trailed again in the Mid-South Conference battle against Cumberland University.

The No. 2 Tigers (23-3, 11-3) had to rally from a nine-point, halftime deficit. The Phoenix (10-15, 3-9) finished the first 20 minutes on an 11-2 run after Cottrill's 1-of-2 from the foul line tied the game at 26.

However, Georgetown quickly got back into the game with a 9-0 burst of its own to start the final 20 minutes.

Jessica Claxton threw a complete-game win behind an offensive explosion Saturday afternoon against Taylor University. The Tigers (2-1) blew the game open with five runs in the second inning, more than enough for the junior pitcher in a 9-4 decision.

Katie Young got it going with a triple. Chelsae Osborn reached on a walk and stole second, setting the stage for Chaselyn Allgeier. She reached with a single to load the bases for Emily Snow. The senior reached on a fielder's choice error that allowed two runs to score.

Engle's double plated Allgeier and Snow for a 6-2 cushion. The team scored one more in the second, halted the Trojans (2-3) two-run half of the inning and never looked back. The Tigers tacked on runs in the third and fourth for the final margin of victory.

Georgetown College baseball took an early lead, but could not win the rubber match against William Carey University Saturday. The Tigers (4-3) plated a run in the first, but the Crusaders (3-3) answered with at least a run in each of the first five innings on their way to a 7-2 victory in Hattiesburg, Miss.

Tyler James opened the bottom of the third with a double and eventually came around on a sacrifice fly for the winning run. Georgetown had tied it up, 2-2, in the top half of the third when Emanuel Sanchez Rosario scored on Chaz Meadows single.

Women's Basketball - Sat, Feb. 13, 2016 at 6:55 PM

Georgetown College women's basketball rebounded from Thursday's setback with a hard fought victory over Cumberland University. The two teams are receiving votes in the most recent NAIA coaches' poll and it was an evenly matched Mid-South Conference showdown Saturday in Lebanon, Tenn.

The Tigers (13-12, 8-5 MSC) clamped down numerous times defensively as the host Phoenix rallied within a possession. Even with under 10 seconds remaining and trailing by five, CU (14-9, 3-7) hit a three to make it interesting. Lydia Graves finished out the duel with a pair of free throws in a 50-46 win.

Georgetown had several costly turnovers, 22 total for the game, but managed to limit the Cumberland offense – averaging 63 points per game.

"Defense won the game today," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "We did a great job on the boards and it was group effort in the scoring column."

Georgetown College baseball shifted gears this weekend with the cold and snow in Kentucky. The Tigers canceled a home series and traveled to Mississippi for three games with the Crusaders of William Carey University.

In game one Friday, WCU was red hot, scoring all of its runs in the first four innings of a 9-5 setback. GC (4-2) never laid down, rallying several times and even got within a run. However, the team stranded six and could never get on rhythm from the mound.

Joe Fernandez gave up six runs on six hits in three innings. Cody Maples came in during the bottom of the fourth. He got back-to-back Crusaders (2-3) to ground out before a two-out, three-run rally capped off the home team's scoring.
