Georgetown College women's lacrosse is just one game into the 2015 inaugural season, but the team easily picked out the leaders for captains earlier this week.

Kaysie Smith was selected this past year's club season and stays captain for this season, while sophomore Merrisa Heraldson and senior Bea Cameron were also tabbed to form the trio.

"I've always thought it best to let the players pick because this is a nod to who they look to for guidance amongst their peers," said GC coach Brandon Davis. "I've not once been shocked by who my players select as natural leaders always rise out of every group."

Georgetown College women's basketball played a rare Monday game as this past week's weather forced unusual circumstances for Mid-South Conference action. The Tigers (13-10, 4-8 MSC) battled with No. 23 University of Pikeville (23-7, 8-6). It was a game of runs in the first half, and then nip and tuck until the final 10 minutes when the Bears finished strong for the 69-59 victory.

Jessica Foster scored two of her 13 second half points to give GC a three-point lead with 11:11 remaining. A free throw and then a basket on back-to-back UPike possessions tied the game for the ninth time. The Bears finished on a 26-13 run.

The trio of juniors scored 91 points as Georgetown College upset No. 3 University of Pikeville in a rare Monday night Mid-South Conference game. The No. 8 Tigers (24-4, 11-3) used a final offensive push for the 109-101 win in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

Noah Cottrill finished with a game-high 34, a point shy of tying is career-high, as well as a three-point make from tying Georgetown's in-game record. The junior guard was 8-of-13 from deep and 11-of-20 from the field. Tony Kimbro tallied a new career-high with 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, 5-of-7 from deep. Deondre McWhorter, despite missing gaps of time with foul trouble, had 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting and went 7-of-7 from the line.

K.K. Simmons and Kenny Manigault kept the Bears (25-3, 12-3) in the game, scoring 32 and 27 points respectively.

Deondre McWhorter is averaging 18.8 points per game this season, but Saturday against Mid-South Conference rival University of the Cumberlands it looked like the junior would struggle to break double digits.

Only once this season has the 6-foot-8 forward scored below 10 points, in the 69-55 win on Senior Day he did not put a mark in the scoring column until nearly four minutes passed in the second half. He finished just 2-of-5 from the field, but went 8-of-10 from the line to finish with a team-high 12 points.

"As a team we struggled shooting the ball, but we played good defense and pulled out the win against a very good Cumberlands team," said GC coach Chris Briggs.

The No. 8 Tigers (23-4, 10-3) had two stretches of three-plus scoreless minutes in the first half, but still managed to hold down the Patriots (19-8, 8-6). UC hit just 29.3 percent from the field for the game. The team has been shooting 44 percent this season.

To say it has been an unusual season for two rival schools is an understatement. Georgetown College and University of the Cumberlands have been staples in women's basketball's national scene the past several seasons. However, injuries and youth coupled with a stacked Mid-South Conference have plagued both teams. Entering Saturday, both teams were below .500 in the conference and needing to win down the stretch for momentum and potential rankings heading into postseason.

Jessica Foster hit a jumper with just more than six minutes remaining in the first half and it was all Georgetown from there in an 80-65 win.

The Tigers (13-9, 4-7) dropped out of the coaches' poll for the first time in a long while and were looking to find traction Saturday on Senior Day. Seniors Devanny King and Olivia Coleman did not disappoint. King had a career day with 26 points, her previous high was 23, while Coleman has been stepping up in the point guard role dished out five assists.
