Day one of the 17th Mid-South Conference women's basketball championship got rolling with an upset minded day. Georgetown College concluded the night and third-seeded Shawnee State University needed overtime to survive the scare Thursday at the Frankfort Convention Center.

The Bears did most of their damage in the final five minutes from the line. Attempting 19 foul shots to Georgetown's three. They had 11 before the Tigers even went to the stripe. SSU advances to Saturday's semifinal with the 74-64 win.

"It is a hard loss, but it is the way the ball bounces sometimes," McCloskey said. "I'm proud of the way we fought, of the way we didn't let the little things bother us, and how we never gave up. Even late in overtime we were still battling for every chance."
