GC Women’s Basketball to Host PBC Tournament Quarterfinal
MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College women’s basketball team (19-6, 11-6 PBC) played well enough to be the No. 2-seed in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) West Division this season, and as a result will host a PBC Tournament Quarterfinal at the Centennial Center Wednesday, March 2 at 7 p.m.
Georgia College went 11-6 in PBC action, and will play host to West Division No. 3-seed Columbus State University (12-14, 8-9 PBC).
The Bobcats are powered by the one-two punch of seniors Chimere Jordan (Gray, Ga.) and Dominique Huffin (Tucker, Ga.). Jordan is the No. 3 scorer in the country at 21.2 points per game. She also ranks 15th in steals per contest at 3.1. Huffin averages 12.3 points per game, and is in the school’s top-10s in both scoring and three-point shots made in a career at GC.
CSU is led by an outstanding post player in Dominique Gilbert at 14.3 points per game, 10.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per contest.
During the season, the Bobcats took both meetings, winning 51-46 in Columbus, Ga. and 64-48 at home.
Tickets for the game are $6 for adults and $3 for children. Students from PBC institutions get in free with valid college ID.
