Georgetown College is hosting all the ghosts and goblins Thursday evening for a fun night of games and candy 5-7 pm on South Campus Quad near Allen and Collier Halls or inside the Bush Fitness Center should the weather turn dreary.
However, the family-friendly evening does not need to be over so soon. Come from the games and join in cheering on GC men's basketball team. The No. 2 Tigers tip off at 7 pm against Indiana University Southeast. All children in costume receive free admission and there will be candy handed out as well.
At times Tuesday evening Georgetown College men's basketball looked poised for another successful season as the young chemistry began to click. Other times the No. 2 Tigers (1-0) looked the part of trying to figure out replacing three All-Americans from the 2016 national tournament runner-up finish.
Quan Poindexter made the most of his minutes, leading the home team to an 85-65 win over Central Penn College (0-2). The junior transfer had 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting, including 2-of-2 from three-point range.
He led five Tigers in double figures as Troy Steward and Raymond Baldwin each had 13. Trent Gilbert had 11 and Jeremiah Tisdale finished with 10.
Georgetown College men's basketball will be holding its annual Bob Davis – Jim Reid Golf Tournament Sept. 29 at Canewood Golf Course. The cost is $100 per player which includes golf, cart fees, gifts, prizes and meals. Registration is at 10 am with everyone teeing off at 11 am.
"This has always been a great event for us and a great way to take a moment to recognize and honor two of our legendary coaches," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We are hoping for great weather, getting a mix of the beautiful fall colors with the warmth of a sunny day."
Deondre McWhorter had a phenomenal four seasons at Georgetown College, helping the Tigers to two NAIA finals and only once finishing the year with a first round exit at the national tournament.
During his senior year, the Louisville native averaged a double-double – 18.4 points and 10 rebounds per game. He was Top 10 in the nation in total rebounds (341), offensive rebounds per game (3.68) and rebounds per game (10.02). He was Top 15 in total scoring (626), total blocks (55) and blocks per game (1.62). He was Top 25 in field goal percentage (54.4), defensive rebounds per game (6.35) and points per game (18.14).
The 2016 NAIA Men's Basketball Division I Player of the Year might have wrapped up his collegiate career in March, but recently signed with the British Basketball League Worchester Wolves.
Putting into words what Deondre McWhorter accomplished in his four years with Georgetown College men's basketball team does not seem to do justice. This year he averaged 18.4 points and 10 rebounds a game.
The Louisville, Ky. native ranked nationally in the Top 15 of – total rebounds, offensive rebounds per game, rebounds per game, total scoring, total blocks and blocks per game. He was also in the Top 25 nationally for defensive rebounds per game, field goal percentage and points per game.
All of which helped to make him the choice for 2016 NAIA National Player of the Year honor, just the third Tiger to ever receive such accolades and the second in four years. The first was Will Carlton in the 1998-99 season. Vic Moses was the most recent in 2012-13.
