basketball 300x297 Tigers get a big win over BluefieldAfter falling to Life University three days earlier, The tigers scored in triple figures for the third time this year in their win over Bluefield College on Saturday, Feb. 16. A game in which the tigers looked like they were running in with for a while, Bluefield College’s second half surge turned it into a close, high scoring thriller.

Georgetown was up 14 at halftime, 54-40, and GC had led by as much as 16. Bluefield’s big surge happened when there were around six minutes to go. This was around the time in which they managed to shorten the lead and keep it away from  10 points. Down the stretch, it was the clutch free-throw shooting of DJ Townsend, Monty Wilson, Vic Moses and Allan Thomas that kept the Tigers up by at least five until a last-second three–pointer, which set the score at 104-102.

The game was fairly even all around statistically, with Georgetown having more turnovers and fewer rebounds than Bluefield, but being fairly close otherwise. Yet, the Tiger’s sharp shooting kept them ahead even after Bluefield’s second half surge. Monty Wilson had 33 points (his new career high) for the Tigers and made 11-16 shots from the field, hitting 10-11 from the charity stripe. Allan Thomas and Garel Craig also scored in bunches, Thomas with 19 points and Craig with 15. Vic Moses led thT tiger big men with 25 points from 11-13 shooting from the field. Bluefield was lead by Byron Carpenter with 28 points, Kearsten Marion with 21, and Devin Page with 18.

The tigers 104 points is the most they’ve scored all season, eclipsing their domination of Kentucky Christian University by one point. The tigers play again at Campbellsville University on Thursday, February 21 at 8pm.
