Trent Gilbert had no trouble finding his shot Thursday against rival Lindsey Wilson College. The Blue Raiders came in with upset on their mind, having great success in the past several season at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. The junior hit five threes in the first six minutes and 30 seconds to outpace the visitors 15-6. The battle raged on for the full 40 minutes, but the game never got closer than two possessions. The No. 2 Tigers stayed undefeated in Mid-South Conference play with a 72-63 win.
GC improves to 18-1, 6-0, while LWC falls to 14-7, 2-4.
Justus Martin battled down low Thursday against a very physical Lindsey Wilson College team for a team-high 14 points. The No. 4 Blue Raiders (18-0, 6-0) defended their perfect season on the road with a surge at the end of the first quarter. LWC scored five unanswered to the quarter break and then continued in a 20-4 run that sealed the game.
The visitors used turnovers in that stretch to break away from the Tigers (5-14, 1-5) for an 85-56 win.
Georgetown College men's basketball had an off night. The No. 2 Tigers (17-1, 5-0) trailed by as many as 16 in the first half Thursday against Campbellsville University (9-8, 1-4). GC was even down 14 in the second half and multiple times by a dozen unable to get any closer than seven points. However, Quan Poindexter kept them in it with career-highs in points, 41, and rebounds, 11, allowing time for Troy Steward to come to life. Steward hit three deep threes and a runner in the lane as Georgetown erased a nine-point deficit with six minutes left. Georgetown never trailed again in a 93-87 win in Campbellsville.
Steward was 2-of-13 minus a two minute and three second span late in the game. Following two free throw misses off a technical foul call, the sophomore came to life. He went 4-of-5, including 3-of-3 from three-point range. The run started with a three with six minutes to go and CU up 78-69. Next possession, Chris Coffey had a stick back dunk. Steward's next basket was a runner in the lane, and Georgetown was within two, the closest it had been since midway through the first half.
Georgetown College women's basketball played strong defense early against the seventh-ranked Campbellsville University Lady Tigers. However, a seven-minute stretch early in the second quarter helped the home team open up a double-digit lead and never look back. CU (17-2, 4-1) was led by Emily Fox's 17 points in an 82-53 win Thursday in Campbellsville. GC falls to 5-13, 1-4.
Kennedy Flynn led the visitors with 11 points, while Emilie Ziese chipped in with 10 rebounds and nine points.
