Georgetown College men's basketball finished up regular season play with an 87-66 loss at Campbellsville University. The No. 7 GC Tigers (24-6, 11-5 Mid-South Conference) led briefly on the road as CU used the deep ball to put the game away.

Corey Washburn scored a basket and a possession later a free throw for a 21-20 edge with 9:09 showing in the first half. Campbellsville finished on 25-10 run for a 14-point halftime lead. CU eventually held a 23-point advantage to claim the second seed in the upcoming MSC Tournament in Frankfort.

GC fell to the third seed and will play Life University 8 pm Friday night to wrap-up quarterfinal play. It is the team's first set of back-to-back losses since opening conference play with a similar road skid. The setbacks bookend a 21-2 run for most of the season.

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.
