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.

The trio of juniors scored 91 points as Georgetown College upset No. 3 University of Pikeville in a rare Monday night Mid-South Conference game. The No. 8 Tigers (24-4, 11-3) used a final offensive push for the 109-101 win in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

Noah Cottrill finished with a game-high 34, a point shy of tying is career-high, as well as a three-point make from tying Georgetown's in-game record. The junior guard was 8-of-13 from deep and 11-of-20 from the field. Tony Kimbro tallied a new career-high with 30 points on 11-of-20 shooting, 5-of-7 from deep. Deondre McWhorter, despite missing gaps of time with foul trouble, had 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting and went 7-of-7 from the line.

K.K. Simmons and Kenny Manigault kept the Bears (25-3, 12-3) in the game, scoring 32 and 27 points respectively.

Deondre McWhorter is averaging 18.8 points per game this season, but Saturday against Mid-South Conference rival University of the Cumberlands it looked like the junior would struggle to break double digits.

Only once this season has the 6-foot-8 forward scored below 10 points, in the 69-55 win on Senior Day he did not put a mark in the scoring column until nearly four minutes passed in the second half. He finished just 2-of-5 from the field, but went 8-of-10 from the line to finish with a team-high 12 points.

"As a team we struggled shooting the ball, but we played good defense and pulled out the win against a very good Cumberlands team," said GC coach Chris Briggs.

The No. 8 Tigers (23-4, 10-3) had two stretches of three-plus scoreless minutes in the first half, but still managed to hold down the Patriots (19-8, 8-6). UC hit just 29.3 percent from the field for the game. The team has been shooting 44 percent this season.
