AIKEN, S.C. – In a defensive-minded affair, the Georgia College Women's Basketball team (1-5, 0-1 PBC) dropped their first Peach Belt Conference (PBC) contest this season Wednesday at USC Aiken (4-1, 1-0 PBC), 59-54.

Offense was at a premium for both squads, with both teams shooting 36 percent from the floor. The Bobcats led at the end of each of the first three quarters, but the home-court advantage came in to play in the fourth as the Pacers pulled away.

The Bobcats were led by senior Jasmine McSwain (Marietta, Georgia) as she put in 13 points with five boards. It was the Georgia College newcomer's fourth-straight double-digit scoring game.

The rest of the scoring  leaders came off the bench, as freshman Harper Vick (Marietta, Georgia) had 11 points and five assists with four boards, and senior Erin Drynan (Chicago, Illinois) added 10 points and a team-best seven rebounds.

The Bobcats caused more turnovers at 21-15, but were out-rebounded 52-31, including 13-4 on the offensive glass.

GC Women's Basketball is back in action Saturday, Dec. 1 at noon, traveling to Augusta University.
