Jordan Helps Bobcats Down Saints, 63-55
by Matthew Dalby, sports information graduate assistant
MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Senior guard Chimere Jordan (Gray, Ga.) poured in 27 points to help the Georgia College women's basketball team (13-4, 5-4 PBC) defeat the visiting Saints from North Georgia (13-7, 4-5 PBC) by a score of 63-55 at the Centennial Center Wednesday night.
The Bobcats received a great all-around effort from multiple contributors to help grab the crucial game in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC). To go along with her 27 points, Jordan also grabbed nine boards and recorded six steals.
Helping Jordan on the boards were freshman Abby Slocumb (Suwanee, Ga.) and sophomore point guard Karisma Boykin (Carrollton, Ga.), who chipped in with seven apiece. Boykin also added a career-high 10 assists.
Scoring-wise, Dominique Huffin (Tucker, Ga.) added 13 points to go along with three rebounds and two assists.
After the Bobcats jumped out to a large lead, the Saints managed to creep back even bringing the game to 57-55 with 1:38 to play. Some stifling defense and solid work from the charity-stripe allowed the Bobcats to seal the win, ending the game on 6-0 run.
Georgia College returns to action on Saturday, Feb. 5 when they head to No. 2 Clayton State University (21-0, 10-0 PBC) seeking revenge from an early season loss.
