Five double-figure scorers, three double-digit rebounds and two double-doubles not a bad stat line for just game two for Georgetown College men's basketball.
The No. 8 Tigers (2-0) started on a 12-0 run and never let up against visiting Ohio State-Newark. The Titans briefly got the game back to single digits with a 5-0 run of their own, but Georgetown put a halt to that in a stream roll win 131-60.
Georgetown snagged 75 rebounds – second most in school history for a single-game and most in a game since 2007. The Titans shoot a chilly 26 percent from the field, while the Tigers blistered the nets at 52.3 percent.
Georgetown College men's basketball opened the season Monday night. At times it was not the prettiest, but in the end the Tigers (1-0) put it together for a 90-72 win. Miami University Middletown made a run in the first nine minutes of the second half to pull within one. Then Noah Cottrill and Deondre McWhorter fueled Georgetown's 29-12 run to finish the game.
The junior tandem scored 24 of the final points. Cottrill finished with a game-tying high 24 points and Gerard Coleman made his GC debut with 23 points. The senior did most of his scoring in the first 20 minutes with 17 at the break.

Georgetown College men's basketball team will get a little limelight on the new SEC Network. The Tigers exhibition with University of Kentucky has been moved from its original date to Sunday, Nov. 9 in order to accommodate being televised. Tip is set for 7 pm at Rupp Arena.
UK holds the all-time series record at 36-15, but Georgetown started strong winning the first six and eight of the first 10. The last meeting between these two teams was 2005-06 with the Cats winning 85-63.
National title, Most Valuable Player, Georgetown College Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2008 and Monday the NAIA released the newest member of the 2015 Hall of Fame Class. Those are the accolades that surround Anderson County native Will Carlton, but to talk to him you would never know it.
"What an exciting day for Will and Georgetown College," said GC Director of Athletics Brian Evans. "Will is probably the last person to speak up of his accomplishments, but what he did in his time here and what he has gone on to do becoming assistant principal in Mercer County is just a testament of who he is. Tiger Nation could not be prouder than at this moment for Will."
The humble post player finished seventh on the all-time Georgetown 1,000 point club list. His 2,197 points has him behind six players who wore the Orange & Black for four seasons. Had Carlton done the same and averaged his output for the three seasons, he would have finished third all-time in scoring.
