WINGATE, N.C. – The Georgia College Women's Basketball team (0-2) had trouble halting the run-and-gun approach of Anderson University (2-0) Saturday, falling 79-47 in day two of the PBC/SAC Challenge at Wingate University.
The Trojans jumped out to an impressive 26-10 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. The Bobcats had a strong final quarter, winning the fourth 16-13, but it wasn't enough.
Senior guard Brianna Davis (Rockford, Illinois) was the only scorer in double-figures for the Bobcats with 10 points, as nine of the 10 Bobcats that played reached the scoring column. Davis has now scored in double-digits in each of the first two games, after netting 10 yesterday. Classmate Alyah McGriff (Suwanee, Georgia) had a near double-double with eight points and a game-high 11 rebounds.
Anderson's Alexy Mollenhauer lit up the nets in the first quarter for 12 points, helping the Trojans get off to that hot start. She finished the game with 15 points.
The Bobcats were out-shot 38 percent (28-74) to 27 percent (17-62) from the field and lost the rebounding battle 55-38.
The Bobcats are back in action Friday, Nov. 15 at 4 p.m., taking on Barton College at the Nighthawk Classic, hosted by the University of North Georgia.
