MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Georgia College Men's Basketball (6-4, 1-1) grabbed its first conference win Monday night against the Flagler College Saints (6-1, 1-1). Three Bobcats propelled the Blue and Green as they knocked in 42 points together. The rest of the squad netted 46 points to snap the Saints' six-win streak, 88-64.
The Bobcats waited until over halfway through the first frame to take the lead. With about 10 minutes left on the clock in the first, the Bobcats were down by 10 on their own court, quickly looking at a repeat of Saturday's conference loss against Armstrong State University. But the men scored a huge 14 unanswered points and never gave the lead back.
At the top of the Georgia College roster sits senior Mark McCorkle (Cumming), who snagged 15 points, all coming past the arc. He only missed four, making a sharp 55.5 percent of the shots he took. Freshman Austin Dukes (Lawrenceville) came in just under McCorkle. He added 14 points of his own, his career-best.
Isaac Thomas (Trion) was the best starter for the Bobcats Monday. The sophomore took 13 points from the Saints.
Sophomore Chaz Berry (Fayetteville) led the Cats in ball control. He came off the bench and grabbed 10 boards before the night was done, also a career-best.
The Bobcats go into the holiday break an even .500 in the conference. They'll travel to Erskine College on Dec. 31 in hopes to welcome in 2017 with a non-conference "W." The men will host Peach Belt Conference competitor Francis Marion University on Jan. 9 for the next home game.
