Tigers rout Kentucky Christian

Special to The State Journal, Published:

GEORGETOWN – The Georgetown College men’s basketball team gave itself and coach Chris Briggs a very nice Christmas present Friday with a 103-56 win over Kentucky Christian University (3-11) at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

The Tigers (9-3) opened up a 6-0 lead before the Knights’ coach Ron Reed called time out. KCU responded to get within 11-7 over the next few minutes, but GC used a 20-0 run for a 24-point edge.

Kentucky Christian got back within 17 a couple of times before halftime but could never get any closer.

Georgetown point guard Garel Craig was a point shy of a triple-double with a floater rimming out in the final 10 seconds. The senior had nine points, 10 assists and 12 rebounds.

Five Tigers did notch double figures. Monty Wilson hit three straight 3-pointers down the stretch to give him 18 on the night. Allan Thomas also scored 18 points. D.J. Townsend and Vic Moses had 17 points each and Montavious Marc finished with 10.

“One of our main points coming into tonight was to look at our press and our full-court pressure,” Briggs said. “I was glad to see how we worked tonight. It is a good win to send us into a bit of a break. I want them to enjoy Christmas and come back ready to work.”

Derek Lawson scored 15 points for the Knights and Gabe Antrobus finished with 10.

Georgetown returns to action 2 p.m. Dec. 30 against Ohio Mansfield before getting back into Mid-South Conference action on the road Jan. 3 against University of the Cumberlands.
