Georgetown College men's basketball knocked off a very hot Bluefield College team to start its journey in the 2014 Mid-South Conference Basketball Championships presented by GoJohnnyGo 5K/10K Run/Walk.
The No. 16 Tigers (21-9) erased a double-digit early deficit, then scratched and clawed for the 78-74 win.
Monty Wilson scored a tournament career-high with 31 points; he had 27 in the semifinal loss to University of Pikeville in 2013. The senior was hot early, scoring 17 points as the Tigers changed a 12-point deficit to a two-point lead at the break.
Georgetown College's Monty Wilson and Deondre McWhorter earned Mid-South Conference honors as released by the league off Wednesday. Wilson took his second first-team all-conference honor, while McWhorter was named to the second team.
Russ Middleton earned his fourth MSC All-Academic honor, which requires athletes to be of sophomore or higher standing with a 3.25 grade point average or better.
Georgetown College men's and women's basketball teams learned their playoff schedule late Saturday evening. The Mid-South Conference will run Thursday-Sunday in Lebanon, Tenn.
The No. 14 men's team is set for a third meeting with Bluefield College. Tip is set for 7 pm Thursday. The No. 8 women's team will start postseason with a showdown with University of Rio Grande. Tip is set for 7 pm Friday in Lebanon, Tenn. The Tigers swept both these teams in the regular season respectively.
Georgetown College men's basketball rebounded from Thursday's loss with a big win on Senior Day Saturday at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. The No. 16 Tigers (20-8, 11-6) sent out Montavious Marc, Monty Wilson, Russ Middleton, Branden Burdette and Anthony Adkins with an 81-59 win.
Jaylen Daniel was impressive off the bench with 24 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including 2-of-2 from three-point range. The junior also went 6-of-6 from the foul line.
It has been a tough two weeks for the Georgetown College men's basketball team. Starting with an overtime loss at home against a surging Campbellsville University, the No. 16 Tigers have dropped three of the past four games in Mid-South Conference play.
All three losses have been close down the stretch, but Georgetown has just not been able to put it together for the full 40 minutes. Thursday against Lindsey Wilson College, the Tigers pulled the game within four several times inside the final five minutes. However, the Blue Raiders (14-13, 5-10) had an answer every time. LWC hit 46.7 percent from the deep and walked out with an 86-76 win.
