GEORGETOWN — Jessica Waddle scored 20 points and Andrea Howard added 16, all in the second half, as 17th-ranked Georgetown stunned No. 5 Cumberlands 69-57 in a Mid-South Conference women's basketball game Thursday night.
Stunned because the Tigers snapped the Patriots' 21-game winning streak. Georgetown also made a 42-point turnaround, having lost 72-42 to Cumberlands on Jan. 12.
"That is definitely a big turnaround," said Andrea McCloskey, coach of the Tigers (18-8, 10-4 MSC). "That game was still on our minds, when we were down at Cumberlands. It was one we always wanted to get back and, tonight, our girls came ready to play."
Waddle shot 4-for-5 from three-point range en route to a 14-point first half. She added a trey in the second half.
Never miss a local story.
Chelsey Johnson scored 11 points off the bench. Devon Golden had five points and 13 of the winners' 48 rebounds. Gina Beining had nine points and nine boards.
Cumberlands (23-2, 12-1) was led by Jade Howard with 19 points. Haley Ratliff had 10. Lauren Wombles, who was averaging almost 20 points a game, was held to eight.
The Tigers celebrated by dousing their coach with a water bucket.
"I am drenched from head to toe," McCloskey said. "It's a great win for everybody, so I'm glad we could celebrate like that."
Cumberlands shot only 32.1 percent (17-for-53) from the field and 53.3 (16-for-30) at the free-throw line.
