“Freshman Bobcat Hunter Ivester (Trion) drives the baseline and jumps through a pair of Tiger defenders at NCAA Division III Sewanee Monday night.”
(Sewanee, Tennessee) – Just two weeks ago, NJCAA All-Region and All-District forward sophomore Alex Miller was draining a 51-foot jump shot at the buzzer to help Georgia Northwestern down Sewanee at the Rossville Athletic Complex (R.A.C.).

High atop Monteagle on Monday night, the Bobcats repeated the first half from just two weeks ago against Sewanee falling behind early leading to an eight-point deficit at the break, 32-24.

Full court pressure throughout most of the second half saw the Tiger lead get cut to one on two different occasions. Three-pointers from freshman Bobcats Tavish Reynolds and Hunter Ivester helped get the lead down to the one-point margins.

However, three-point attempts in the final two minutes would miss their mark and the Cats would end the game fouling to get the ball back in their possession. The Tigers pulled away for a seven point win, 62-55.

Reynolds went five-of-six from three-point land leading the Bobcats in scoring with 15 on the night. Hunter Ivester, Bud Todd, and Alex Miller would each score ten points each for Georgia Northwestern.

Gulf Shores, Alabama-native Bryan Beviacqua would led the Tigers in the win with 18 points on the night.
