Cats Eye Post-Season, Honor Stephenson

Bobcats, Lady Cats Host Freewill Thursday At The R.A.C.

(The R.A.C., Rossville, GA) – For the first time in college history, the Georgia Northwestern Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams are talking about post-season play.

The Bobcats and Lady Cats will travel to Oxford, Georgia in a few weeks for their spots in the NJCAA Region XVII Qualifier. Oxford College at Emory University will host the three-day event. The host team currently holds the top seed going into the post-season date. In preparation, the Bobcats (7-14, 0-6) and Lady Cats (3-14, 3-3) are facing a tough non-region schedule to close out the regular schedule in preparation.

“If either these teams find a way to win and get out of the region, the NJCAA District Qualifier takes place in North Carolina,” said Georgia Northwestern Men’s Head Basketball Coach David Stephenson. “But we’d have to find ways to close out games against our tough region opponents at Williams (Emory-Oxford Gymnasium.)”

The Women’s Region XVII Tournament takes place February 24-25. The Men’s Region XVII Tournament takes place March 1-3.

This Saturday at The R.A.C. (Rossville Athletic Complex), Georgia Northwestern Technical College will be honoring Stephenson for 25 years of coaching basketball to student-athletes across the region. “He’s coached on just about all levels of play and has being doing it well for 25 years,” said Georgia Northwestern Technical College Provost Jeff King. “But we are proud of him because, first and foremost, he’s helping bring up young men through athletics.”

The game versus NJCAA Region XVII leaders Emory-Oxford tips-off at 2 p.m. An honor will be given to Stephenson at halftime of the region contest. All GNTC’ers attend free with i.d.

Cats Road Win Showcases Record-Setting Night by Patton

Image 
(Knoxville, TN) – Ringing up more triples than a cashier at Wendy’s, sophomore Bobcat Ben Patton shattered a Georgia Northwestern record for three-pointers Friday night in a road win over Johnson University, 83-78.

While the host squad was hot all across the floor dropping treys at an above-par 48-percent clip, the sophomore sniper from Trenton, Georgia would set a Bobcat record with nine-of-11 shooting from behind the arc as part of his 33 points on the night. He set the previous program record last year with six three-pointers in a game.

The former Dade County standout also set his college record for most points in a half with 27 in the second half Friday night. The original record was set two years ago by Kyle Wilson with 25 in one half versus Freewill Baptist (TN). Wilson is now a junior on the Berry College Men’s Basketball Roster.

Georgia Northwestern (7-10, 0-5) sophomore point guard Matt Woods tied the college record for steals in a game with five. It’s a record he originally set last year against Southern Crescent Tech. Add to that defensive effort a monster block in the paint with little three minutes remaining in the game and Woods had one of his best showings of 2011-12.

Johnson University guards Tyler Griffin, Nick King, and Depew Chase went a combined eight-of-14 from three-point land. However, the hot streak from long-range would subside for Johnson University in the second half as Georgia Northwestern’s Patton would go seven-of-nine from outside in the final twenty minutes.

A week-long home stand at The R.A.C. (Rossville Athletic Complex) kicks-off for the Bobcats on Tuesday as they host Clayton State at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Georgia Northwestern hosts Macon State in a tribute game. At halftime of that game, GNTC will honor the college’s first-ever men’s basketball program and the five-year anniversary of their inaugural season.

Lady Cats Fall At The Buzzer In Instant Classic

In the opener at Johnson University, freshman Lady Cat Emily Cole (Adairsville) had her best game of the season with 10 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, and a pair of steals in the non-region contest in Knoxville Friday night. It would be the 18 points of Johnson University’s Ashley Rawls though that would set the pace for a one-point win over the Cats, 58-57.

Sophomore forward Jessica Williams dropped in 13 points and cleaned the boards for 11 rebounds in the road loss. Down three at the half, the Lady Cats would fight to gain a lead in the final ten minutes. However, foul trouble would force the road team to play with only four players for the final four minutes of the game.

Georgia Northwestern (2-13, 2-3) would fight to hold on to the lead until the final three seconds when a backdoor pass gave Johnson a lay-up to take the lead for good. The Lady Cats are off until January 31 when they will host Cleveland State (TN) on January 31 at the Winthrop-King Centre on the campus of Shorter University.

Bobcats Tame Lions in Covenant Tourney

Georgia Northwestern To Face TN Temple Saturday

(Lookout Mountain, Georgia) – After leading by as many as 10 Friday night, Georgia Northwestern saw their lead slip away in the second half over Bryan College. Fortunately, team play would kick into gear for the Bobcats late in the game to tame the Lions, 76-71.

 

This opening game of the Covenant College Tournament would see the lead change seven times. The Bobcats would hold a narrow three-point lead going into the break. The Lions would quickly attempt to quiet the Cats with an alley-oop to open the second half.

 

Momentum would shift back and forth through the final twenty minutes. Bryan College would manage to grow their lead to as many as five with five minutes to go in the game.

 

That’s when sophomore shooting guard Ben Patton (Dade) decided to save his best for last as he opened fire on the tournament host Covenant College rims in the final 90 seconds draining a clutch three, as well as hitting a pair of free throws, to help grab the win. Patton scored 13 on the night.

 

Freshman Bobcat Randy Boyd (Chattanooga-Hixson) led all scorers with 19 points and cleaned the glass for 11 rebounds. Sophomore Bud Todd (Trion) blocked a trio of Lion shot attempts, clawed his way to 10 boards, and dropped in 13 points. Alex Miller (Gordon Central) scored 14.

 

Sophomore captain Matt Woods would lead the way from the point with eight assists, four steals, and nine rebounds (four offensive).

 

The Cats (6-6, 0-1) take on Tennessee Temple Saturday at 4 p.m. to close out the two-day event.

 

Georgia Northwestern (76) – Randy Boyd 19, Woods 4, Ben Patton 13, Alex Miller 14, Bud Todd 13, Towns 2, Hill 4, Dempsey, Chitwood.

 

Bryan College (71) – Hilton 7, Howell 7, Calvin Smith 19, Blosser 6, Wilcox 7, Griffin, Derek Hankins 11, Rivers 4, Chris Logan 10.

 

Halftime Score: 36-33, Georgia Northwestern
