GC Basketball Coach Andrea McCloskey and her Tigers are extending their fund-raising Fall Mum Sale just for alumni who will be attending Homecoming next weekend from outside Scott County.

If you pre-order by noon Wednesday, Sept. 19, you’ll be able to pick up your mum(s) on Homecoming Saturday (Sept. 22) between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. just inside the Thomas & King Conference Center. Coach McCloskey wanted to make it convenient for those attending the various Decades Luncheons and fans arriving early for the football game.

The mums are $8 for an 8-inch pot and the flowers come in Red, Yellow, Bronze Orange, Lavender, and White. Call Coach McCloskey at (502) 863-7020 or email her at

Your purchases will help our Tigers – who are coming of Georgetown’s first NAIA Final Four appearance last season! – pay their way to San Juan, Puerto Rico over Christmas Break to play two NCAA D-II schools from P.R.

Dec. 19, GC will face University of Puerto Rico–Mayaguez;  Dec. 21, the opponent is University of Puerto Rico–Bayamon.

Coach McCloskey said, “We will be doing some site-seeing in historical old San Juan, learning about their traditions and customs, then bringing home a lifetime of memories.”
