Wiedeman Takes Second Bobcat Athlete of the Week

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Senior forward Reece Wiedeman (Suwanee, Ga.) of the Georgia College men’s basketball team (7-2, 1-0 PBC) was named Bobcat Athlete of the Week for the week ending Jan. 2. This is the second such honor for both Wiedeman and the Bobcat men’s basketball team this season.

Wiedeman had a breakthrough performance at the Hampton Inn & Suites Classic at Armstrong Atlantic this week, exploding for a career-best 28 points in the opener against Barton College with eight rebounds. He followed that up by scoring a team-high 13 points in just 21 minutes of action in a blowout win over St. Augustine's College. Wiedeman has now had double-digit scoring in five out of his last six games.

The Bobcats are back in action Saturday, Jan. 8 at 3:30 p.m. hosting Clayton State University.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, back-to-back winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 10 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
