MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Junior forward Scott Ferguson (Roswell, Ga.) of the Georgia College men’s basketball team (7-3, 0-1 PBC) was named the most recent Bobcat Athlete of the Week for the week ending Jan. 1. This marks the first such honor for Ferguson and the fourth for the Bobcat men’s basketball team this season.

The junior college transfer responded well to his first two career starts, getting his first career 20-point game and his first career double-double in consecutive days. Ferguson had 20 points, six rebounds and four assists in the win over Mars Hill College. He followed that with a 12-point 11-rebound double-double, adding two blocks in the loss to Shaw University.

Bobcat men’s basketball is back in action Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 7:30 p.m. traveling to Columbus State University.
