Twice this season freshman Darion Burns has tallied 12 points. Saturday against St. Catharine in a Mid-South Conference showdown, the Flemingsburg, Ky. native tallied 20 on a perfect 8-of-8 shooting, helping No. 17 Georgetown College men's basketball to a 72-55 victory in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

The Tigers (17-3, 6-2 MSC) blistered the nets from inside the three-point arc in the first half, 68.2 percent. Burns had 11 at the break, but came up with a couple of big steals and flushes to keep the Patriots (6-12, 2-6) at bay.

Five players in Orange & Black reached double figures against SCC. Noah Cottrill had 16, Tony Kimbro chipped in with 11 and Deondre McWhorter and Corey Washburn each had 10.

Kimbro led with 10 rebounds and McWhorter had eight.

Jessica Foster tallied another new career-high in points, her third time to do so this season, and Georgetown College women's basketball took a 73-69 win over St. Catharine College in the Mid-South Conference tilt Saturday.

The No. 25 Tigers (11-7, 2-5) trailed by one at half and even by as many as eight in the early portion of the final 20 minutes. Foster scored 10 of her 26 points in a four minute span that put GC ahead for good. The lead eventually ballooned to 14, but the feisty Patriots (8-12, 1-6) got it back within four, 67-63, with 1:21 to play.

Lena Bramblett's team used fouling and a few untimely Tiger turnovers to try to get closer, but freshman Tralyn Woodard hit four straight from the line to help ice the game. Sophomore Emilie Ziese also picked up a huge charge that also stemmed the tied.

Georgetown College women's basketball has had one tough stretch. The No. 25 Tigers played NCAA Division I Northern Kentucky in an exhibition, went to No. 14 Shawnee State University and then came home to play No. 3 Campbellsville University. CU came to town Thursday in a thrilling Mid-South Conference rivalry tilt, walking away 55-39 victors.

"That's one ridiculous set of games and that doesn't include our travels to Texas playing a Top 15 team and then to California for another Top 15 team," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "We've grown every step and it is hard when you are so competitive to be patient with the process, but I think we are on the verge of being a team people will not want to face."

Georgetown's woes inside the MSC, a league with seven of the eight teams in the Top 25 or receiving votes, at the hands of Campbellsville. GC falls to 10-7 and 1-5 in conference play, while CU improved to 19-1 and 5-1.

Tony Kimbro had a career night, missing only one shot, and Georgetown College Tigers knocked off Campbellsville University in the NAIA Game of the Week. The No. 17 Tigers (16-3) improved to 5-2 in the Mid-South Conference, while handing No. 1 CU (19-2, 6-1) its second loss all season behind Kimbro's career-high of 26 points, most made threes six, most threes attempted (6) and most field goals made (8).

Kimbro hit a jumper with 14:25 left to match GC's largest lead of the second half of 13. From there CU responded and turned up the pressure. Back-to-back turnovers out of the press put CU in and-one positions with just more than five minutes left. Eric Gaines, who led Campbellsville with 23, made the old fashion three. Next possession, D'Von Campbell put the nation's top team up one, 67-66, but missed the free one.

Who should respond for Georgetown, Kimbro. The Louisville native calmly hit a three off an assist from Mike Walker and the home team never trailed again.

It was another thrilling battle Thursday night as Georgetown College men's basketball walked into Waller Gymnasium to face Mid-South Conference foe Shawnee State University. The Bears (6-10, 0-6 MSC) threatened to pick up their first conference win with a huge 18-minute run that spanned the end of the first and opening of the second. However, GC had an answer the final six minutes, including an exciting final minute for the 71-68 win. The No. 18 Tigers improve to 15-3 overall and 4-2 in the MSC.

GC faced a mountain, 11-point deficit, with 6:39 remaining when Mike Walker made a steal and started a rally. The junior was fouled, made both free throws and ignited a 24-10 run to secure the comeback victory for Georgetown.

"This is a tough place to play," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "They have great shooters and if you let them get a glimpse at a shot they can hit it. Even with our lead late we all knew it was not over until the final horn sounded."
