GREENWOOD, S.C. – The Georgia College Women's Basketball team (3-5, 2-1 PBC) scored the final six points of the game Tuesday to win at Lander University (4-3, 1-1 PBC) 63-57.

The six-point run began with a tie game at 57-57 in the 2:36 mark of the fourth quarter. Senior Jasmine McSwain (Marietta, Georgia) layups on consecutive possessions, both off passes from freshman Harper Vick (Marietta, Georgia), and then Vick closed it out with two free-throws for the victory.

McSwain led all scorers in the defensive-minded contest with 16 points, adding seven rebounds and three steals. She went 7-for-10 from the floor en route to her sixth-straight double-digit scoring effort.

Classmate Erin Drynan (Chicago, Illinois) had 11 points, eight rebounds and four blocks, while Vick finished with seven points, six rebounds and six assists.

The Bobcats were defensive-minded tonight, holding the Bearcats to just 28 percent shooting on the night (19-67) Georgia College's best mark this season. The Bobcat reserves outscored Lander's 25-6, led by seven each from Vick and senior Shay Tarver (Covington, Georgia), and a season-best six from freshman Cassidy Markle (Cumming, Georgia).
