Living and dying by the three-point shot can create a lot of excitement and heartbreak. Depending on which side you were cheering for Tuesday evening, both emotions were flowing. Georgetown College women's basketball traveled to Berea College for an out of conference showdown.
The Mountaineers (5-2) heated up from behind the arc and used 14 threes in a 65-56 win over the Tigers (3-7).
Shelby Beam sparked a 10-0 run late in the second quarter that made it 26 all at the break. She hit a three and then assisted on a three by Kennedy Flynn. The lone deep balls for the visitors in the first 20 minutes. The run continued to start the second half. Beam fueled a 9-5 spurt that had GC equal its largest lead of the game four, 35-31. Berea finished on a 14-6 run and never looked back.
A youthful team will have its growing pains, it is how it processes, learns and moves forward from those that matter. Georgetown College women's basketball finishes up its first semester play Tuesday with a trip to Berea College. Then a small break in the action for finals and holidays to see where the team with 11 freshmen and sophomores with a junior and a senior develop from the tough opening stretch of the season.
Saturday was the final game inside the Mid-South Conference until Jan. 9. Unfortunately it came against perennial power Shawnee State University. The Tigers (3-6, 0-3) had it close early and a couple of baskets from Kennedy Flynn made it interesting midway through the second quarter. However, the Bears (12-0, 3-0) closed on a 13-3 run and never looked back. They won 84-66.
Georgetown College women's and men's basketball teams tip it up Saturday in the Lace It Up 4 Pediatric Cancer games against Shawnee State University. At the same time, the Georgetown community will be celebrating Santa coming to town with its annual Christmas parade.
Fans this will not cause problems getting to the 2 or 4 pm games, however, leaving might be tricky. At this time we are advising those coming to the games to park in the gravel lot, the Hambrick lot (both off Military), the Pit (lot across from Hambrick on other side of Military), or off Jackson Street in order to be able to exit and avoid the blocked off roads and downtown traffic.
Georgetown College and Shawnee State University always play in meaningful Mid-South Conference basketball games. However, Saturday's doubleheader will have an added importance. Both teams will be Lacing it Up 4 Pediatric Cancer, wearing gold shoe strings.
Women tip at 2 pm with the men to follow around 4 pm. Fans are encouraged to bring a toy to donate as the Tigers will deliver the extra Christmas gifts to an area pediatric cancer ward.
Runs at the end of quarters were the undoing of Georgetown College women's basketball on the road Monday against No. 17 University of Pikeville. Both teams were looking to level their Mid-South Conference record at .500 and the Bears used late spurts for an 80-74 win.
The Tigers (3-5, 0-2) had big nights from its veterans – Emilie Ziese and Shelby Beam. The duo combined for 41 points. Ziese also chipped in with her third double-double by grabbing a game-high 12 rebounds.
UPike (7-2, 1-1) used a 4-0 run to close the gap at the end of the first quarter. The Bears had a 4-3 run at the end of the second to go into the break up one. Then Devin Conley cashed in 16 of her game-high 25 points in the fourth quarter, including five in an 8-2 run to finish the game.
