GEORGETOWN, KY - (27 Jan 2018) The Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team stormed past Georgetown (KY) 74-44 on Saturday afternoon at Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.
After a 14-14 tie following the first quarter, the eighth-ranked Blue Raiders (17-4, 4-2 MSC) outscored the Tigers (7-15, 1-6 MSC) 60-30 across the final 30 minutes of play, including a 25-9 advantage in the fourth quarter en route to the convincing win.
Kayla Styles posted her conference-leading 12th double-double of the season with 22 points and 10 rebounds, her seventh-straight and 11th overall game this year scoring 20 or more points. Reagan Turner followed with 20 points, two off her career high, while Gerda Paulauskaite grabbed a team-high 14 rebounds.
It was a low-scoring affair in the opening quarter as both teams struggled to find an offensive rhythm early. Lindsey Wilson started the contest 1-for-5 from the floor while Georgetown missed all four of their opening attempts, the Tigers not hitting a shot from the floor until the 6:03 mark of the quarter.
LWC's shooting improved as the Blue Raiders finished the quarter hitting 5-of-7 attempts, but the Tigers, despite just a 20.0 percent (3-for-15) mark from the floor, were able to keep the game level as they made 8-of-10 free throws. Lindsey Wilson did not make a single trip to the charity stripe in the first quarter. Georgetown dominated the glass in the opening quarter, winning the rebounding battle 12-6 overall and 9-3 in offensive rebounds.
The Blue Raiders finally got things rolling midway through the second quarter and put forth a strong performance until the end of the half. A basket by Molly Stone at the 6:32 mark put the Blue Raiders in front 18-17, the first LWC lead since it was 4-3. That helped ignite a 16-6 run by Lindsey Wilson, including a 6-0 spurt to wrap up the quarter and give LWC a 34-23 halftime lead.
The Blue Raiders finished the half shooting 42.9 percent (12-for-28) and 3-for-10 from three, adding a 7-for-10 mark from the free throw line. Georgetown shot just 17.9 percent (5-for-28) with a 1-for-13 mark from three, but the Tigers made 12-of-14 attempts from the charity stripe. Both Styles and Turner had 11 points through the first half.
Lindsey Wilson picked up where they left off in the third quarter, scoring the first seven points before a Georgetown basket ended LWC's 13-0 run across the second and third quarters, making it a 41-23 contest.
The closest Georgetown would get would be 13 points at 48-35 with 1:06 to play in the third, but the Blue Raiders opened the fourth on a 10-2 run, part of a 25-9 effort in the final frame to seal the 30-point victory.
Lindsey Wilson outshot Georgetown 37.7 to 20.3 percent for the game, winning the rebounding battle 47-37 overall.
Georgetown was led by Kennedy Flynn with 10 points in the loss.
