Hamilton Chosen Bobcat Athlete of the Week

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Senior guard Nate Hamilton (Snellville, Ga.) of the Georgia College men’s basketball team (1-1) was named the Bobcat Athlete of the Week for the week ending Nov. 11.

Hamilton knocked down eight threes en route to a 28-point performance to start the season in the win over Palm Beach Atlantic University Saturday. The senior had spent last season away from basketball and shook off the rust in a hurry. He recorded a less super-human six points in the loss to the University of West Florida Sunday.

The Bobcats are back in action Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m., traveling to Clark-Atlanta University for more non-conference action.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 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.
