A youthful team will have its growing pains, it is how it processes, learns and moves forward from those that matter. Georgetown College women's basketball finishes up its first semester play Tuesday with a trip to Berea College. Then a small break in the action for finals and holidays to see where the team with 11 freshmen and sophomores with a junior and a senior develop from the tough stretch the team is coming off.
Saturday was the final game inside the Mid-South Conference until Jan. 9. Unfortunately it came against recent perennial power Shawnee State University. The Tigers (3-6, 0-3) had it close early and a couple of baskets from Kennedy Flynn made it interesting midway through the second quarter. However, the Bears (12-0, 3-0) closed on a 13-3 run and never looked. They won 84-66.
Georgetown College women's and men's basketball teams tip it up Saturday in the Lace It Up 4 Pediatric Cancer games against Shawnee State University. At the same time, the Georgetown community will be celebrating Santa coming to town with its annual Christmas parade.
Fans this will not cause problems getting to the 2 or 4 pm games, however, leaving might be tricky. At this time we are advising those coming to the games to park in the gravel lot, the Hambrick lot (both off Military), the Pit (lot across from Hambrick on other side of Military), or off Jackson Street in order to be able to exit and avoid the blocked off roads and downtown traffic.
Georgetown College and Shawnee State University always play in meaningful Mid-South Conference basketball games. However, Saturday's doubleheader will have an added importance. Both teams will be Lacing it Up 4 Pediatric Cancer, wearing gold shoe strings.
Women tip at 2 pm with the men to follow around 4 pm. Fans are encouraged to bring a toy to donate as the Tigers will deliver the extra Christmas gifts to an area pediatric cancer ward.
Runs at the end of quarters were the undoing of Georgetown College women's basketball on the road Monday against No. 17 University of Pikeville. Both teams were looking to level their Mid-South Conference record at .500 and the Bears used late spurts for an 80-74 win.
The Tigers (3-5, 0-2) had big nights from its veterans – Emilie Ziese and Shelby Beam. The duo combined for 41 points. Ziese also chipped in with her third double-double by grabbing a game-high 12 rebounds.
UPike (7-2, 1-1) used a 4-0 run to close the gap at the end of the first quarter. The Bears had a 4-3 run at the end of the second to go into the break up one. Then Devin Conley cashed in 16 of her game-high 25 points in the fourth quarter, including five in an 8-2 run to finish the game.
Georgetown College women's basketball hit the road for the first time this season, opening Mid-South Conference play in one of its toughest arenas. The Tigers (3-4, 0-1) have not fared particularly well the past few seasons in Williamsburg, Ky. against rival University of the Cumberlands. The woes continued Saturday. UC made a big run in the first 10-minutes and then weathered two storms in a 65-54 win.
Justus Martin hit a pair of free throws midway through the first quarter, giving GC its only lead of the game. The Patriots (5-2, 1-0) responded with a 13-5 run and held a multiple possession lead for most of the game.
