Georgetown College men's basketball continued to shoot well in Friday's 87-48 win over Carlow University in the night cap of the 21st Annual Central Bank Jim Reid Classic. The Tigers (7-2) took care of the Celtics (1-3) with a big first half advantage and then stepped on the gas the final 20 minutes.
"This tournament means a lot to our program to be able to honor Jim Reid and all he means to this school and program is great," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "To keep his legacy forefront for our fans and players is important. He, along with Coach Bob Davis, were the cornerstones for this program and every chance we get to honor him is special.
"We want to thank Central Bank which has helped to make all of this possible for so many years. We would not be able to make this such a good tournament without their support and help."
Deondre McWhorter did more than rattle the rim a few times in Tuesday's big win over Indiana University Southeast. The junior led five Tigers (6-2) in double figures with 23 points - nearly a fourth of the total points GC scored - 10 coming from authoritative dunks. He also had 12 rebounds for a double-double for Georgetown College men's basketball team in a 100-76 win over IUSE.
The Grenadiers (3-3) had streaky shooting in the first half that led to a brief advantage at the break. They hit 50 percent in the first half including five threes and held a 39-38 edge at half.
Bopper Stenzel hit three of his first four three-pointers, helping the No. 8 Tigers to a double-digit first half lead over Lindsey Wilson College Saturday. The Blue Raiders (4-4, 1-2) made a charge in the final 20 minutes of the Mid-South Conference showdown in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, but it was not enough.
While LWC was making its run, it was Gerard Coleman and Noah Cottrill stemming the tide for the Tigers (5-2, 2-2). Coleman scored 14 of his game-high 23 points in the second half, while Cottrill poured in all 17 of his points after the break.
Lindsey pulled within one twice down the stretch, 71-70 and 73-72, but Cottrill hit one of his five second half baskets and Tony Kimbro hit a free throw to keep the visitors at bay.
Georgetown College men's basketball woke up for the second half and took control of the Mid-South Conference tilt Thursday night against Cumberland University. The No. 8 Tigers (4-2, 1-2) erased a four-point deficit for a 74-54 win in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
The Bulldogs (3-4, 0-2) used spurts of offense and capitalized off GC miscues for the early advantage. However, early in the second half the Tigers were able to string together an 8-0 run and never looked back.
Georgetown College men's basketball has had a difficult time in Williamsburg the past few seasons. Thursday night in the Mid-South Conference opener was no different. The No. 25 Patriots (5-0, 1-0 MSC) blistered the nets at 51.9 percent and a phenomenal 61.1 from three-point range.
Taylor Gover had a career-high 21 points, including 6-of-8 from behind the arc, to lead UC to an 87-68 win over the No. 8 Tigers.
Noah Cottrill led the offensive charge for GC (3-1, 0-1) with a game-high 25 points, seven-of-13 from the field and 11-of-14 from the line. Deondre McWhorter did most of his damage in the first half. The junior post had nine points and five rebounds at the break, he finished with 13 points and nine boards.
