MORROW, Ga. – In a streaky contest, the Georgia College Women's Basketball team (4-7, 1-2 PBC) fell 67-42 at Clayton State University (6-4, 2-0 PBC) Saturday.

The Bobcats weathered an early storm of an 8-0 run to start by CSU, taking the lead over 13-12 on a free throw from Anaya Cone (Douglasville) at the 2:10 mark in the first quarter. Cone's free-throw was part of a 20-0 run for Georgia College beginning at the 6:56 mark in the first and ending a little over a quarter later with the Bobcats up 22-12.

The Lakers responded well to that drought and took the lead back late in the second. CSU would never relinquish that advantage throughout the second half.

Sophomore Harper Vick (Marietta) and Cone shared the team lead with 10 points apiece. Cone also pulled in seven boards to lead the Bobcats.

GC Women's Hoops was out-shot 43 percent to 28 percent from the floor, as the Lakers' Kelsie Towns knocked down five threes en route to 24 points.

The Bobcats are back in action Saturday, Jan. 4 at 1:30 p.m., playing host to USC Aiken in the Centennial Center.
