Georgetown College 87
Carlow University 48

Final from Georgetown, Kentucky

Game recap by GC:

Georgetown College men's basketball continued to shoot well in Friday's 87-48 win over Carlow University in the night cap of the 21st Annual Central Bank Jim Reid Classic. The Tigers (7-2) took care of the Celtics (1-3) with a big first half advantage and then stepped on the gas the final 20 minutes.

"This tournament means a lot to our program to be able to honor Jim Reid and all he means to this school and program is great," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "To keep his legacy forefront for our fans and players is important. He, along with Coach Bob Davis, were the cornerstones for this program and every chance we get to honor him is special.

"We want to thank Central Bank which has helped to make all of this possible for so many years. We would not be able to make this such a good tournament without their support and help."

Noah Cottrill led the scoring with a game-high 19 points. Gerard Coleman chipped in with 15 and Deondre McWhorter dropped a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Coleman helped the team get on the break and find easy baskets in transition with a game-high six assists.

"We did what we needed to do and found a much better rhythm in the second half," Briggs said.

Georgetown returns to action to close out the tournament 4 pm against Southern University at New Orleans.
