Georgetown College women's basketball ended a two-game skid in fashion Sunday afternoon in Adrian, Mich. In the consolation game of the Siena Heights Thanksgiving Tournament, the Tigers (4-5) exploded for a 105-17 victory over Great Lakes Christian College (0-8). It is the fifth time in coach Andrea McCloskey's head coaching tenure that GC has eclipsed 100 points and second time to do it while holding the opponent below 35.
While the century mark is pretty it is other numbers that are more important to McCloskey.
Georgetown won the battle of the boards 53-19 (20 offensive rebounds). The team had 29 assists on 45 makes. The Tigers forced 23 turnovers and converted those into 37 points. They had a season-low five miscues and held the Lakes to just 9.8 percent shooting on 4-of-41 from the field. Every player scored in a balanced attack of three players in double figures and five more just a basket away from tallying at least 10.
Georgetown College women's basketball made a long trip to Adrian, Mich. for the Siena Heights Thanksgiving Tournament. The Tigers (3-5) battled, but struggled late in a 63-58 setback Saturday.
Emilie Ziese scored early in the fourth quarter for a 50-42 lead. The ball started bouncing Cardinal Stritch's way at that point for 21-8 finish and the win.
Winter is knocking on the door and in Kentucky that means it is basketball season. Georgetown College men's and women's teams have seven games under their belts. The No. 6 men's team is 7-0 and preparing for three more games this week including the 22nd annual Central Bank Jim Reid Classic. The women's team is sitting at 3-4, coming off a narrow four-point loss to the No. 1 team in the nation.

Playing the top ranked team in the nation with six freshman can be a daunting task, but one Georgetown College women's basketball was up for Saturday.
No. 1 Campbellsville University came to Davis-Reid Alumni Gym and got all it wanted in a 70-66 victory.
"We played the number one team in the nation to a four-point game so regardless of the loss I believe we made a statement today," said GC senior Haley Armstrong. "Our preseason rank is not an indicator of what our team can do this season. We are making mistakes that you would expect from a younger ball club, but the more we keep playing together our team chemistry will get better. We'll be more confidence as a whole."
Georgetown College women's basketball raced out to a 20-9 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in opening Mid-South Conference action with a double-digit win. The Tigers (3-3, 1-0) continued to battle all game against a scrappy St. Catharine College (2-5, 0-1) team, remaining unbeaten at home with the 74-62 win.
Jessica Foster led the way with 20 points as GC limited turnovers and blistered the nets for nearly 50 percent shooting from the field.
"Any win in this conference is a great win," said GC coach Andrea McCloskey. "Our depth is really going to help in this tough conference. I'm still wanting our turnovers to decrease and our rebounds to increase."
McCloskey used 13 players, nine of which played 11 minutes or more. Eleven Tigers scored and three were in double figures.
