Georgetown College women's basketball played strong defense early against the seventh-ranked Campbellsville University Lady Tigers. However, a seven-minute stretch early in the second quarter helped the home team open up a double-digit lead and never look back.

Kennedy Flynn led the visitors with 11 points, while Emilie Ziese chipped in with 10 rebounds and nine points.
Georgetown College women's basketball tallied a win in the Mid-South Conference Monday in convincing fashion. The Tigers (5-12, 1-3) used a 24-2 run to break away from Life University and never look back.

Georgetown College men's and women's basketball continue to find ways to spread joy and love to the community around them. The Tigers took Friday morning to go to Kentucky Children's Hospital at UK HealthCare and visit with numerous patients there.
The student-athletes brought smiles to all those they met, sharing toys and jerseys, singing songs and handing out signed posters.
"These are the moments our players really shine," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "When you have children of your own, you can't even fathom what these families are going through as their children battle diseases no one should have to fight, and they do it with smiles, strength and courage. It does the heart good to see your players want to take their time to spend making a difference and hopefully cheering up the families and children during this difficult time.
Georgetown College women's basketball finished off a rough road stretch with a 91-53 setback to Cam Jam Tournament host College of the Ozarks. The Lady Bobcats used a 17-2 run to end the first quarter and put the game away.
After CofO started on a 5-0 run, Georgetown battled back and eventually made it a two point affair twice, 12-10 and 14-12. However, it was all Lady Bobcats from there. They used a 12-0 spurt to break it wide open before a Georgetown timeout. The Tigers (4-12) came out of the break for a two, but another 5-0 run finished off the quarter. The host team led by 17 at that point and it never got closer.
Justus Martin had her coming out party Monday with 21 points and 15 rebounds for Georgetown College women's basketball. The Tigers struggled early to find an offensive rhythm, putting them behind Haskell Indian Nations University almost from the start. The Indians were able to find enough offense at the right times to keep a surging GC team at bay and win 60-48 in the opening day of the Cam Jam Tournament in Point Lookout, Mo.
For Martin it was a career day as midway through the third quarter she banked in a shot for 14 points. She added seven more down the stretch to finish with her first collegiate double-double.
