Twice this season freshman Darion Burns has tallied 12 points. Saturday against St. Catharine in a Mid-South Conference showdown, the Flemingsburg, Ky. native tallied 20 on a perfect 8-of-8 shooting, helping No. 17 Georgetown College men's basketball to a 72-55 victory in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
The Tigers (17-3, 6-2 MSC) blistered the nets from inside the three-point arc in the first half, 68.2 percent. Burns had 11 at the break, but came up with a couple of big steals and flushes to keep the Patriots (6-12, 2-6) at bay.
Five players in Orange & Black reached double figures against SCC. Noah Cottrill had 16, Tony Kimbro chipped in with 11 and Deondre McWhorter and Corey Washburn each had 10.
Kimbro led with 10 rebounds and McWhorter had eight.
Tony Kimbro had a career night, missing only one shot, and Georgetown College Tigers knocked off Campbellsville University in the NAIA Game of the Week. The No. 17 Tigers (16-3) improved to 5-2 in the Mid-South Conference, while handing No. 1 CU (19-2, 6-1) its second loss all season behind Kimbro's career-high of 26 points, most made threes six, most threes attempted (6) and most field goals made (8).
Kimbro hit a jumper with 14:25 left to match GC's largest lead of the second half of 13. From there CU responded and turned up the pressure. Back-to-back turnovers out of the press put CU in and-one positions with just more than five minutes left. Eric Gaines, who led Campbellsville with 23, made the old fashion three. Next possession, D'Von Campbell put the nation's top team up one, 67-66, but missed the free one.
Who should respond for Georgetown, Kimbro. The Louisville native calmly hit a three off an assist from Mike Walker and the home team never trailed again.
It was another thrilling battle Thursday night as Georgetown College men's basketball walked into Waller Gymnasium to face Mid-South Conference foe Shawnee State University. The Bears (6-10, 0-6 MSC) threatened to pick up their first conference win with a huge 18-minute run that spanned the end of the first and opening of the second. However, GC had an answer the final six minutes, including an exciting final minute for the 71-68 win. The No. 18 Tigers improve to 15-3 overall and 4-2 in the MSC.
GC faced a mountain, 11-point deficit, with 6:39 remaining when Mike Walker made a steal and started a rally. The junior was fouled, made both free throws and ignited a 24-10 run to secure the comeback victory for Georgetown.
"This is a tough place to play," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "They have great shooters and if you let them get a glimpse at a shot they can hit it. Even with our lead late we all knew it was not over until the final horn sounded."
Deondre McWhorter led three Tigers to tally 20-plus points Friday against Carver Bible College. Georgetown College men's basketball posted a 98-73 win over the Cougars.
The junior post slammed his way to 27 points and nine rebounds, while senior Corey Washburn had a career-high 22 points and 14 rebounds.
Tyler Crater capped off a 10-2 run for Olivet Nazarene University Sunday as the visiting Tigers rallied for a two-point win over No. 15 Georgetown College. The GC Tigers (13-3) led by six with just shy of two minutes to play, but Austin Davis came to life from three-point range and ONU won 84-82.
Olivet (9-6) hit nine threes in Davis-Reid Alumni Gym, five in the second half and two in the final two minutes. Davis hit four on his way to 14 points. Crater finished with 10. Aaron Larson led ONU with 17 and Zach Wagner had 13.
Noah Cottrill was the story for the home team, scoring a career-high 35 points and blistering the nets from downtown in the first half. The junior went 6-of-8 from deep in the first 12-plus minutes. He finished 7-of-13, cooling off considerable after been poked in the eye on a defensive play.
