No. 6 Georgetown College Destroys IU Southeast

(6) Georgetown College 114
IU Southeast 58

Final from Georgetown, Kentucky

Game recap by GC:

The challenge was clear – do not let up and have fun doing it.

Georgetown College men's basketball team easily could have taken the second half off Tuesday evening in a 114-58 rout of Indiana University Southeast. The No. 6 Tigers (5-0) nearly held a triple advantage at the halfway mark, leading 61-26.

"Our goals were to maintain our energy and effort," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "I was pleased with our effort."

The Grenadiers (2-4) had 16 turnovers at the break and finished with 24. They were shooting just shy of 30 percent from the field through 20 minutes and finished right at 30 for the game.

Georgetown easily won the battle on the boards – 67-43 with 24 offensive rebounds.

"It's very fun to coach these guys when they play hard and unselfish like they did," Briggs said. "I love seeing our guys make the extra passes to their teammates and making hustle plays on defense. We had guys competing trying to get the most assists and that is a lot of fun."

Tony Kimbro took the victory there. The senior from Louisville had seven assists, six in the first half. For the game, the Tigers had 18 assists on 43 makes with a lot of second half baskets coming on second and third opportunities around the rim for Chris Coffey, Edson Avila and Deondre McWhorter.

Noah Cottrill finished with a game-high 19 points, leading six Tigers in double figures. McWhorter chipped in 18. Trent Gilbert had 17. Coffey finished with 15 and a game-high 14 rebounds (10 offensive). Troy Steward had 13 points. Avila finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
