Georgetown College men's basketball team came off a big high in a home rivalry win Monday and had an unfortunate drop Thursday at St. Catharine College. The Patriots got off to a hot offensive start and found enough power down the stretch to pull off the 71-68 win over No. 7 Tigers.

The Mid-South Conference will wrap up play Saturday and good news for Georgetown is that University of Pikeville also lost Thursday. UPike sits atop the league at 12-4. GC and Campbellsville are second at 11-4. Georgetown and Campbellsville play Saturday 4 pm in Campbellsville. If GC wins that game, the Tigers and Bears would be tied at 12-4. Head-to-head the teams split, with Campbellsville being the next highest team at 11-5. Georgetown would have swept CU this season and UPike split, putting the GC Tigers as regular season champions.

Whenever Georgetown College women's basketball needed a big play Thursday somebody stepped up in Springfield, Ky. against St. Catharine College. The Mid-South Conference regular season will come to a close Saturday, but the Tigers (14-10, 5-8) picked up a very important road win 69-52.

"It was a great team win tonight," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "This is what we've been wanting them to see all year. That everyone can find a way to contribute no matter if you are a starter or if you come off the bench, everyone has a role and can make a difference.

"We should be a really tough team to defend, but we've been limiting ourselves offensively. Hopefully tonight our players saw what coach (Kourtney) Tyra and I have been talking about all season. I was pleased top to bottom at the effort and team unity tonight."

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.
