Georgetown College men's and women's basketball teams head to Frankfort this coming week for the Mid-South Conference tournament. The men struggled a bit down the stretch, but with a road win Thursday secured a second-seed. The women came on strong in the end, winning three of the final six conference games to pick up fifth place.
Both teams finished in ties the league had to decipher out to determine placement. The women were in a three-way tie for fifth and had same head-to-head and record against MSC opponents. The third tiebreak, there was no common opponents amongst all three and thus went to points. GC won that for fifth place and a 4 pm Thursday date with No. 22 University of Pikeville.
Darion Burns made two baskets and Quan Poindexter one as Georgetown College men's basketball took one possession leads in the overtime session Saturday against Lindsey Wilson College. However, it was not enough as the Blue Raiders finished on an 11-1 run and pick up a four-point win. LWC's 88-84 win secures the team a fifth-place seed in the upcoming Mid-South Conference tournament.
Quarterfinal action begins Friday and the No. 6 Tigers finish tied for second with University of Pikeville. GC swept the Bears this season, giving them the nod at the two seed.
Georgetown College men's basketball stops a skid with a huge road win in the Mid-South Conference Thursday. The No. 6 Tigers (22-5, 9-4) had dropped four in a row in MSC and were trailing 13 early against Cumberland University, which was coming off a win over No. 9 University of the Cumberlands.
However, GC perked up with a shot of Chris Coffey, nearly erasing the deficit in the first half and then rolling in the second. The sophomore rattled the rim for a tie early in the final 20 minutes and then hit several jump shots to help put Georgetown on the way to a 79-67 win.
Shawn Johnson hit a trio of threes to start the second half against Georgetown College men's basketball, helping visiting Campbellsville University pick up the win.
The No. 6 GC Tigers (21-5, 8-4) saw an 11-point lead evaporate, but still had a chance down the stretch in the 77-76 loss. The home team had two contested, but makeable rim attempts in the final 10 seconds and a pair of free throws with four seconds left to try and tie it.
CU (14-13, 4-9) has been on the wrong side of many narrow losses, including a marathon five overtime set back just more than a week ago to University of the Cumberlands. Campbellsville has 12 losses at five-points or less, which might have been the calm under pressure it needed to outlast GC on senior day.
In a battle for the top spot in Mid-South Conference men's basketball, Georgetown College and Life University's game came down to runs, threes and free throws.
The No. 3 Tigers (21-4, 8-3) finished 15-of-22 from the line and allowed 11 three-pointers by the host Running Eagles (14-10, 10-2). Life held on down the stretch as GC played the fouling game for a 70-68 win.
Troy Steward hit Georgetown's fifth three of the night with less than a second remaining, but no one could foul before the final horn sounded for one final offensive attempt.
