Mikell Named GCSU Athlete of the Week

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - Junior guard Andre Mikell (Snellville, Ga.) of the Georgia College & State University men's basketball team (6-1) was named GCSU Athlete of the Week for the week ending Dec. 20.

Going 6-of-8 from the floor en route to a career-best 17 points, Mikell provided the spark the Bobcats needed to pull out a thrilling 77-76 win at Newberry College Tuesday. The reserve guard had four assists, three steals, a pair of boards and a block on the evening's effort.

The Bobcats are back in action Tuesday, Dec. 29 in day one of the AASU/Hampton Inn Holiday Classic in Savannah, Ga. Georgia College faces Wingate University at 5 p.m.
