(Powell, TN) – After climbing out of an 11-point hole at the break in Powell, Tennessee Thursday night, Georgia Northwestern managed to knot things up with 11 minutes to go at 56-all. However, the four-year program at Crown College would lean on the play of Nate Humphrey and his 26 points to escape the road cats, 88-80.
“We had a lot of hard-fought baskets down low that led to ‘and-one’ situations,” said Georgia Northwestern Men’s Head Basketball Coach David Stephenson. “Problem is we missed nine free throws in the second half. Well, we lost by eight.”
A dazzling half-court bounce pass from Cats captain Matt Woods (Dade) to freshman (Randy Boyd) in the first half were among the plays that helped Georgia Northwestern keep things close on the road. Freshman forward Alex Miller served as a spark plug with 11 points and 13 boards in the effort.
There are two notes to keep in mind as the Bobcats continue their gauntlet of games over the next couple of weeks in preparation for NJCAA Region XVII region play. There were key injuries to freshman point guard Fernando Lemus, Jr. (leg) and Robby Chitwood (finger). Chitwood (Dade) dislocated a finger in the second half during a physical battle for the ball under the boards. Lemus, Jr. (Model) appeared to have a mild leg bruise during a drive to the basket in the final seconds of the game. Both are listed as probable for the Cats next game.
Georgia Northwestern (2-3) will play Saturday at The R.A.C. in Rossville, Georgia in a 1 p.m. tip-off against Caldwell C.C. (N.C.). Monday night, the Bobcats host their Annual Food Drive game benefitting The Care Mission of LaFayette, Georgia. Bring one non-perishable food item and you’ll get free admission to the game versus Covenant College.
December 3, Georgia Northwestern will host their Second Annual Bobcat Blowout. Four high-schools will battle in prep match-ups before and after the Bobcats game with visiting Johnson University (TN). Mountain View Christian plays Cleveland Christian at 2:30 p.m. Tennessee Christian will face-off with Collegedale Academy in the nightcap.
Georgia Northwestern (80) – Boyd 15, Lemus, Jr. 16, Woods 6, Alex Miller 11, Chitwood, Moon 3, Towns, Hill, Jr. 5, Dempsey, Patton 9, Todd 15.
Crown College (88) – Loney 9, Ethan Cook 10, Nate Humphrey 26, J. Cook, Houston Sherrod 12, Collin Hickman 11, Farmer 3, Cruse 8, Grant 2, Brown 2, Scoggins, Owens, Cox.
Halftime Score: 41-30, Crown College
Georgia Northwestern Prepares For Cleveland State
For Immediate Release
(Nashville, TN) – Hot shooting from Georgia Northwestern in the Music City on Friday night did not translate into a Saturday tourney title as Trinity Baptist senior Zach Shank would clean the nets for a game-high 24 points in route to an 85-69 finals win in the Free Will Baptist Tournament.
The Bobcats (2-1), who shot three-pointers at a 77-percent click on Friday in a semi-finals win, only connected on six of 17 strikes from beyond the arc in today’s final. “We dug a hole quick and didn’t run our offense,” said Georgia Northwestern Men’s Head Basketball Coach David Stephenson. “We weren’t boxing out and just kept letting them push the ball down the court. We flat out weren’t hustling.”
After a pair of 24-point performances in the first two games of the season for Georgia Northwestern, Cats freshman Randy Boyd (Chattanooga-Hixson) would drop in only seven points and pull down seven boards in the tourney final loss in Nashville.
Bobcat freshmen Alex Miller (Gordon Central) and Robbie Chitwood (Dade) would lead the scoring effort Saturday for GNTC with 12 and 10 points respectively.
“They had their biggest lead on us going into the half,” said Stephenson. “The second half was a different story. At the break, we were down 18. However, we managed to close it to single digits late.” The Cats would only find themselves at the free-throw line a handful of times hitting on five-of-eight from the 15-foot mark.
Another road trip awaits the Bobcats in three days as they head up I-75 North into the Volunteer State to take on NJCAA Division I power Cleveland State in the confines of L. Quentin Lane Gymnasium.
