Georgia College Men’s Basketball Signs 3 Point Shooter

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College men’s basketball program and head coach Terry Sellers announced the signing of Alex Reid. 

Reid, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard, comes to Georgia College from Calvary Day School in Savannah, Ga. He averaged 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. Reid shot 45% percent (72-161) from the 3 point line, 50 percent (64-128) from the field overall and 84% (73-87) from the free-throw line. 

“Alex is a great fit with our program and University,” said Sellers.  “I believe Alex has a lot of potential. We love players with outstanding shooting ability. If you look at our program over the years we have had some of the better shooters in the Peach Belt Conference. We are thrilled Alex has chosen to continue his collegiate career as a Bobcat.” 

Calvary Day went 22-8 record this past season. They were the Region 3-A Champions and made the GHSA State Sweet 16. 

The Bobcats are fresh off a 16-10 season in 2010-11 finishing third in the Peach Belt Conference.  The Bobcats lose two seniors, including starting center Reece Wiedeman (Suwanee, Ga.) who was named Second Team All-PBC and starting forward Josh Hurst (Athens, Ga.) who earned a spot on the PBC All-Academic Team three years in a row. 

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.
