On Jan. 3, 2013, the Georgetown College men’s basketball team lost to University of the Cumberlands by 25 points. The team was down three players and playing away, but University of the Cumberlands visited Georgetown again this weekend and the tables were turned. The tigers were able to put away UC 70-49, winning by 21 points on Feb. 2, 2013.
The tigers led most of the way against UC’s patriots. By halftime, Georgetown was up by 18 points. A barrage of three–pointers in the second half by Allan Thomas and Monty Wilson kept the game far away at the beginning of the second half, and it never got much closer. The Tiger defense was relentless, recording nine steals and three blocks overall as a team. Allan Thomas recorded two blocks, while Monty Wilson had the majority of the steals, recording three.
The Tigers didn’t have senior Forward/Center Vic Moses, who was out for illness, but they got big games out of a couple other key players. Deondre McWhorter scored 13 points and pulled down seven rebounds while Montavious Marc and Corey Washburn combined for 10 points to keep the front court thriving. Mychal Parker also had six rebounds for the Tigers. The Tiger guards also played well, Monty Wilson with 18 points and five assists, Allan Thomas with 14, DJ Townsend with nine including two big three pointers, and Garel Craig scoring six total points.
The Tigers will be playing at home on Thursday, Feb. 8 against the University of Pikeville, who the tigers beat by three on Jan. 19.
