DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The Georgia College Women's Basketball team (4-10, 1-5 PBC) had a tall order in No. 10 University of North Georgia (13-1, 6-0 PBC) Saturday on the road, the Bobcats falling to the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) leaders 65-48.

Georgia College took the fight to the Nighhawks, getting double-digit scoring efforts from both Harper Vick (Marietta) and Caroline Wysocki (Flowery Branch). Vick hit for 16 points, Wysocki adding 13.

The second quarter would provide the edge that North Georgia would need, as the Nighthawks took the quarter 20-7. GC fought hard in the second half, actually taking the third quarter by a 19-14 score, thanks in part to seven points from Wysocki in that frame.

The Nighthawks are the highest of two nationally-ranked teams GC has faced this season, the other being then-No. 13 Anderson University, an 86-65 loss Nov. 8.

The Bobcats were out-shot 41 percent to 35 percent from the floor and out-rebounded 47-33. The reserves helped keep GC in the game, out-scoring the Nighthawks 22-16. The super-subs were led by Wysocki's 13, as she was flanked by seven points from fellow freshman Anaya Cone (Douglasville).

The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 9:30 a.m. for Education Day at the Centennial Center. GC will host Young Harris College for the special matinee.
