(6) Georgetown College 94
Washington Adventist 86

Final from Takoma Park, Maryland

Game recap by GC:

Georgetown College men's basketball team improved to 3-0 to start the season with a solid 94-86 road victory. The No. 6 Tigers saw their two All-Americans shine at different points to help overwhelm host Washington Adventist University.

Deondre McWhorter had the hot hand early, scoring 16 of his game-tying high 24 points. However, the post fouled out late in the second half calling upon Noah Cottrill to step up. The senior scored 23 points, 14 of which came in the final nine minutes of the game. Eight of those were inside the final minute and part of his 15-of-15 from the foul line.

All nine Tigers scored as Raymond Baldwin, 15, and Chris Coffey, 11, also tallied double digits.

"This was a great road test for us. Washington Adventist is a very talented and athletic team that looks ready for a great season," said GC coach Chris Briggs. "I was very proud of our guys for the toughness they showed and their ability to finish the game. Everyone contributed. We did a lot of things well and we still have room for improvement. It sure was a fun game to be a part of. We had a great trip and we are looking forward to getting back to Georgetown."

Darion Burns led with five of the teams 15 assists.

Coffey added 10 rebounds for his first double-double for Georgetown. McWhorter was a rebound shy of a double-double.
