Wednesday’s area sports briefs

From staff reportsDecember 19, 2012 

— Georgetown’s Charlie McGirt has turned into a force for the Bulldogs and proved it Wednesday night.

McGirt finished with a game-high 16 points and also added 19 rebounds to lead Georgetown over Charleston Math and Science 55-36 in a first round game of the Panther Classic at Carolina Forest High School.

“He is becoming a force inside,” Bulldogs coach Alvin Walker said. “His play really picks our play up. When Anthony Blair went to North-South, Charlie picked that up.”

Malik Wright led Charleston Math and Science with 11 points.

Even though Georgtown won the game by 19, Walker feels his team has to get better.

“Its always good to get a win,” Walker said. “I wasn’t really impress with our play but we played well enough to win.”
