Georgetown College men's basketball team wrapped up the 22nd annual Central Bank Jim Reid Classic the way it started it. The No. 6 Tigers (10-0) dropped another 121 points in a thrashing of Ohio University-Chillicothe Saturday.
Noah Cottrill tied a school, in-game record with 15 assists as GC rolled 121-59 over the Hilltoppers. Georgetown tallied 20 three-pointers with four players hitting 17 of those and six players reached double figures.
"I'm super excited about what this team is capable of and what we can accomplish this year," Cottrill said. "It's an honor to know that I will now be remembered at a great institution like Georgetown with all the history we have here."
Georgetown College men's basketball team raced out of the games Friday in the afternoon cap of day one of the Central Bank Jim Reid Classic. The No. 6 Tigers (9-0) more than quadrupled their opponent in the first eight-plus minutes on the way to a 121-79 victory over Carver Bible College.
"This type of hustle, determination, teamwork and ball control is exactly the foundation Coach Jim Reid built the Georgetown program upon," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "The way we played today honors his legacy and memory. This tournament is always near and dear to our hearts and it is special to have the Reid family come out every year and support us, not just this weekend, but the entire year."
Trent Gilbert, former Scott County High School standout, was a big part of the great start as he went 4-of-6 in that early stretch, 3-of-5 from three-point range. He finished with a game-high 21 points as eight Tigers finished in double figures.
Georgetown College men's basketball counted a few more blessings Tuesday evening. The No. 6 Tigers picked up their eighth straight win to keep the unblemished mark for the 2015-16 season. Their 112-59 win over Morthland College was the fifth century mark eclipse and third time to break 110.
"It was good for us to be able to work on some things on both ends of the floor tonight," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "We have the Central Bank Jim Reid Classic coming this weekend and we needed another tune up.
"I'm proud of the guys for their effort and want to wish all our fans a Happy Thanksgiving."

It was another epic match up as No. 6 Georgetown College men's basketball hosted No. 18 Campbellsville University.
The first 20 minutes it was a game of runs that the Orange & Black Tigers won for a comfortable double-digit lead at the break. However, CU (5-1, 1-1) was not folding up the tents and surrendering. The Maroon Tigers erased an 18-point deficit, took several leads before GC finished it off with a pair of free throws from Deondre McWhorter. Troy Steward came up with a steal on the defensive end and ran out the clock of a 92-91 Georgetown win.
The home Tigers improve to 7-0 and 2-0 in Mid-South Conference play.
