ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Behind a career-best 32 points from sophomore Jordan Thomas (Conyers, Georgia) the Georgia College Men's Basketball team (6-5, 1-4 PBC) picked up their first Peach Belt Conference (PBC) win of the 2018-19 season Saturday at Flagler College (5-5, 2-2 PBC) 85-77 Saturday.

Jordan Thomas turned it on when it mattered most, scoring 19 of the 32 in the second half, while hitting 8-of-14 from the field. He was 13-for-22 overall for the game, including 4-for-7 from long range. The 32 points are the most by a Bobcat since All-American Terrell Harris (2016) scored 39 at Lander University Feb. 24, 2016.

Senior Isaac Thomas (Trion, Georgia) added 15 points to the fray, with classmate Desmond Mitchell-LaFlam (New Smyrna Beach) adding 11 with seven assists.

A two-possession game at 79-73 with two minutes left, Jordan Thomas drove the left side of the lane, hovered and sunk a lay-in for his 30th points at the 53 second mark. After a Flagler miss and rebound by Kohl Roberts (Atlanta, Georgia), Jordan Thomas sunk another layup to push it further out of reach.

Roberts finished with 13 rebounds, his best effort this season. He now has 503 in his career, good for 10th in school history, passing Larrentis Thomas (2015).

The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 10 a.m., playing host to Georgia Southwestern State University.
