basketballThe Tigers played splendidly in front of family and against arch-rivals St. Catharine’s College on Monday night to win the last regular season game. Three senior Tigers were honored before their game for their contributions to Georgetown College basketball: Garel Craig, Vic Moses and Allan Thomas.

By the waning minutes of the first half, Georgetown had a large lead of 21 points and ended the half up 14 after a last second three-pointer by St. Catharine player Stephen McCray. In the second half, the Tigers took over and never let St. Catharine College get within 10 points. Georgetown hit 88.2 percent of their free throws in comparison to St. Catharine’s 50 percent free throw shooting. The Tigers completely dominated the boards, grabbing 21 more rebounds than St. Catharine. The Tigers did their job and held St. Catharine’s offense to less than 40 percent shooting from the floor.

All three senior Tigers scored in double figures for their last home game at Georgetown College. Vic Moses had 20 points, Garel Craig had 17 and Allan Thomas had 12. Thomas and Moses each had double digit rebounds as well, with 15 and 12 respectively. Monty Wilson pitched in another 17 points, while Deondre McWhorter had 16 in 16 minutes. Five St. Catharine’s players also scored in double figures: Travis Wilkins, Omar Skinner, Kevin Kornegay, Dominique Roy and Stephen McCray.

The Mid South Conference tournament starts on Thursday, Feb. 28 in Frankfort, Ky. at the Frankfort Convention Center. Georgetown has the No. 3 seed and will play No. 6 seeded Cumberlands at 8 p.m.
