GEORGETOWN — Lindsey Burd came off the bench to score 12 points Thursday as Campbellsville's third-ranked women defeated No. 25 Georgetown 55-39.
Campbellsville (19-1, 5-1 Mid-South Conference) won its ninth game in a row.
LeeAnn Grider and Chelsea Craig each added 10 points for the winners, with Craig pulling down six of her team's 32 rebounds.
"Our defense" made the difference, Campbellsville Coach Ginger Colvin said. "We weren't clicking at all offensively and I felt like our defense did a really good job today.
Never miss a local story.
"We just ran a little extended zone and we really try to get after it."
Campbellsville forced the home-team Tigers into 30 turnovers while committing 19.
"They've got a really good offensive team," Colvin said. "They're hard to guard because they've got kids that can play a guard position or a post position. It really creates matchup problems for us. But when we can get back and get in the zone it really makes a difference. And they missed shots, too. It was an ugly offensive game both sides."
Jessica Foster scored 12 points and had eight of her team's 44 rebounds to lead Georgetown (10-7, 1-5).
Campbellsville led 18-15 at halftime. Both teams struggled, with CU shooting 23.3 percent (7-for-30) and committing 12 turnovers. Georgetown shot 21.7 percent (5-for-23) with 16 turnovers.
Campbellsville heated up in the second half, shooting 63.2 percent (12-for-19). Georgetown made 40.7 percent (11-for-27) in the second half.
"We had good looks (in the first half) and could not get anything to fall," Colvin said. "We really wanted to get it inside. And then we started getting it inside and got a little momentum. Lindsey Burd played really well inside, and Chelsea Craig played really well and got some baskets. I think it just came down to which team could get a little bit more momentum and I thought, second half, we got a little bit more."
