Bobcat hoops signs freshman forward

MILLEDGEVILLE — The Georgia College men’s basketball program and head coach Terry Sellers announced the signing of Kelvin Nwanze Thursday.

Nwanze, a 6-foot-5 forward, comes to Georgia College from Archer High School in Lawrenceville, where he played and started two seasons under head coach Tim Watkins.

“We are excited Kelvin decided to join our basketball program,” said Sellers. “One of our weaknesses this past season was rebounding and we believe Kelvin will help in that area. We believe Kelvin’s athleticism and toughness will allow him to contribute right away.”

Kelvin averaged 8.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game this past season. He shot 55 percent from the field and 70 percent from the free-throw line.

Archer went 22-8 this past season finishing eighth in the final AAAAAA AJC Poll. The Tigers advanced to the AAAAAA Sweet Sixteen. Nwanze was named an All-Gwinnett County Academic Selection in 2011-12.  He finished his career as Archer’s all-time leading rebounder .

The Bobcats battled through the 2012-13 season, a 9-17 year with a 5-14 conference mark. Senior forward Scott Ferguson earned a slot on the All-Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Third Team. Georgia College finished the season third in the PBC in fewest turnovers per game (11.3) and second in defending the three-point shot (.306). Sellers picked up his 200th PBC win this season, his 20th at the helm of Bobcat basketball.
