Robert Longtree was hit by the second pitch of game two and scored on a double play for the only run Georgetown College baseball needed. The Tigers (2-0) tacked on several insurance runs to beat Milligan College (0-2) 5-0.

Joe Fernandez pitched a solid game from the mound, striking out 10 and allowing just two hits in the complete-game, shutout win.

In the top of the first, things looked very promising for the visitors. Longtree and Kyle Jackson reached, setting up designated hitter Hector Marmol. The junior went 4-for-5 in game one, but with no outs and two on lined into a double play. His hard hit was straight at the Buffaloes second baseman, who recovered to catch Jackson off at first base. This allowed time for the speedy Longtree to tag and score.

Georgetown College baseball blew open a pitcher's duel in the fourth inning against Milligan College. The Tigers (1-0) had four runs on four hits to help build a cushion in a 9-5 win that opens the 2016 season.

Nicholas Lugo tagged his first home run in Orange and Black with a two-run shot that put the visitors up for good. Trey Gross started the inning with a single and when a bunt attempt to advance him went awry, Lugo stepped in with one out. He hit a 2-1 count to deep left center for a 4-3 GC advantage.

Chaz Meadows reached on an error and came around on a double down the left field line by Kyle Jackson. Hector Marmol followed with an RBI double to score Jackson for a 6-3 advantage.

It is always a battle between Georgetown College and University of Pikeville in men's basketball. Thursday's showdown in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym did not disappoint the near capacity crowd. There were 15 lead changes and five ties. The No. 2 Tigers held the largest advantage late in the second half and held on for a 93-85 win over the No. 4 Bears.

This gives GC a game and a half lead over UPike in the Mid-South Conference standings as the Tigers improve to 21-2 and 9-2. The Bears fall to 20-3, 7-3.

"Another good win for us," said Georgetown coach Chris Briggs. "Great job turning around in the second half after a slow start in the first. I thought they came out much more focused and aggressive in the second half."

Defense wins championships or so the legend goes and the past two weeks Georgetown College women's basketball is living that mantra. The Tigers needed buckled down in the final 10 minutes to keep Mid-South Conference foe No. 15 University of Pikeville from finding a way to break the game open.

Then in the final 3:30, GC (11-, 6-4) scored a baker's dozen to cruise 75-63 over the Bears (19-3, 5-3).

"Our defense again won us that game," said Tiger coach Andrea McCloskey. "We were not scoring, but buckled down to get stops on our end as well. We were taking good shots, they just weren't falling. We got to the media timeout, settled down, began making the extra pass and shots started going in."
