Bobcat men upended at North Georgia, 82-63


The Georgia College men’s basketball team (6-5, 2-2 PBC) dropped its first road Peach Belt Conference (PBC) contest of the season Saturday, falling 82-63 at North Georgia (8-2, 3-0 PBC).

The Saints led by just three at the half, but dominated the second stanza 44-28 to pull away for the win. Already up 59-50 at the 12:47 mark, the Saints went on a 13-2 run to stretch the lead to a comfortable 20-point advantage with just over seven minutes left.

Senior forward Scott Ferguson (Roswell) continued his torrid pace for the Bobcats, scoring a team-high 18 points with eight rebounds. Classmate Nate Hamilton (Snellville) helped the cause with 15 points in just 13 minutes off the bench.

Ferguson now has nine straight double-digit scoring games, and boasts an average of 15.5 points per contest, good for 10th in the PBC.

North Georgia out-shot the Bobcats 50 percent (31-62) to 37 percent (23-62) from the floor, adding a 47-29 rebounding advantage as well.

The Saints put four in double-figure scoring, led by Ishmael Hollis at 19 points and eight rebounds. Lamar Richardson had 14 points, while J.C. Ward and Scott Windom added 13 apiece.

The Bobcats are back in action Thursday at 7:30 p.m., hosting Flagler College.
