Georgetown College women's basketball flexed its muscle against No. 14 Cumberland University. The Tigers (5-15, 1-6 MSC) are known for defense and rebounding under coach Andrea McCloskey. GC kept CU bottled up for most of the day and outrebounded them. Unfortunately, offense was hard to come by against the quick Phoenix (14-5, 3-4) in a 60-45 loss.
Cumberland is averaging 68 points per game and shooting a 21st best in the nation 42.3 percent from the field. Georgetown held its opponents to its third lowest points all season and kept CU to just 38 percent from the field.
Justus Martin battled down low Thursday against a very physical Lindsey Wilson College team for a team-high 14 points. The No. 4 Blue Raiders (18-0, 6-0) defended their perfect season on the road with a surge at the end of the first quarter. LWC scored five unanswered to the quarter break and then continued in a 20-4 run that sealed the game.
The visitors used turnovers in that stretch to break away from the Tigers (5-14, 1-5) for an 85-56 win.
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. CU (17-2, 4-1) was led by Emily Fox's 17 points in an 82-53 win Thursday in Campbellsville. GC falls to 5-13, 1-4.
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. Three players finished with a double-double as the team was back in the friendly confines of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym for the first time in over a month.
Emilie Ziese returned from injury with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Shakela Smith chipped in with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Justus Martin had 11 points and 11 rebounds.
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.
