Noah Cottrill led four Tigers into double figures as No. 14 Georgetown College men's basketball tallied its seventh straight win. The Tigers (19-3, 7-2 Mid-South Conference) had some interesting moments against Shawnee State University (8-12, 2-7), but in the end left nothing to doubt in an 84-67 win at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym Saturday.

The Bears led most of the first half, but a 23-11 run put Georgetown in control for good. Tony Kimbro hit a three with 8:42 left in the opening 20 minutes to get it all started. When time expired, GC went from six down to lead 46-40.

SSU got within five a handful of times, but never could really get back in the game.

Down 16 points to No. 16 with just more than 14 minutes remaining did not look good for Georgetown College women's basketball. Then the relentlessness appeared. The fight came out and the Tigers roared past Mid-South Conference foe Shawnee State University in overtime.

Junior Mykal Farris hit one of the biggest shots of the season to send the game into overtime where it was all Georgetown. The Tigers (12-7, 3-5 MSC) started the second half of conference play with an 80-71 win over the Bears (17-7, 4-4) Saturday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

"It was the greatest feeling of my life," Farris said of the tying three-point basket with 2.5 remaining. "It came down for the moment to win the game and coach (Kourtney) Tyra had drawn up this play two previous times for me in practice. I hit them both times. Coach (Andrea) McCloskey always says have confidence in yourself and others. So I had confidence in me, and I knew my teammates had confidence in me. There was no way that ball wasn't going in."

 
Men's Basketball - Wed, Jan. 28, 2015

Georgetown College men's basketball found itself in a huge hole Tuesday night on the road. The No. 14 Tigers (18-3) needed a huge rally to beat former Mid-South Conference foe West Virginia Institute of Technology in Montgomery, W. Va. Behind Logan, W. Va. native Noah Cottrill, Georgetown rallied from 18 points down for a 74-71 win.

Cottrill scored a game-high 20 points including a pair of threes to keep the Golden Bears (16-6) from being able to pull away in the second half. He also had six assists, three in the final five minutes, which led to key baskets.

The guard set up Corey Washburn for a shot that put GC down 67-66. He then found Mike Walker for a three and a 71-70 game. He also got the steal and the assist on a Tony Kimbro basket to seal the game.

Acrobatics & Tumbling - Tue, Jan. 27, 2015

Georgetown College decided in the fall of 2014 to start an Acrobatics and Tumbling team. On January 1, Alicia Castagneto joined the Tiger staff as head coach for A&T, bringing her vast knowledge and experience in the gymnastics world to Georgetown.

The California native understands the competitive drive involved, starting her gymnastics career at age two. She competed on the regional scene from age seven to 14, stopping at level 8. She took two years off from the circuit before starting to compete again nationally in Trampoline & Tumbling.

Castagneto did that until age 19. At her final nationals, she placed second in tumbling, fifth on double mini trampoline and eighth in trampoline.
