A huge weekend in Pikeville as the Bears welcomed in the Georgetown Tigers, nearly one month ago both the men's and women's basketball teams dropped games to the Tigers.
Take a look at the stats, we start with the women:
The Bears shot 42.6 percent from the field versus 52.4 percent from the Lady Tigers. They were out-rebounded 42 to 33. The UPike women had 16 turnovers to 11 assists.
The ladies went 25-62 for 40 percent from the field, compared to Georgetown's 32.9 percent. They were still out-rebounded 53-44, which is something Coach Joanna McNamee was quick to point in the postgame interview. Another bright spot, they had more assists than turnovers (18 to 11).
Now, the for the men's comparison:
UPike went 24-65 for 36.9 percent from the field, while Georgetown had an even 50 field goal percentage. The Tigers out-rebounded the Bears 51 to 40, and they forced 10 Bear turnovers.
The Bears improved their field goal percentage to 49.3, and out-rebounded the Tigers 39-31 in Saturday's victory. Another impressive stat: UPike's defense forced 22 turnovers to their 17.
Oh what a difference a month makes.
