(Griffin, Georgia) – Georgia Northwestern freshman forward Alyssa Nichelson (Canton, Georgia) led the way for the Lady Cats Friday night as the first-year standout racked up 19 points, six rebounds, and five steals in the 86-57 road win over Southern Crescent Tech in Griffin, Georgia.

Fellow first-year post player Terika Mostella (Cartersville, GA) would drop in a dozen points and clean the boards for 13 rebounds in Georgia Northwestern’s fourth-straight NJCAA Region XVII win. The Lady Cats (10-8, 4-0) are defending their region title of the 2011-12 season which led to a national tournament berth last March.

A noticeable absence for the Lady Cats was region-leading rebounder Odessa Person (Lineville, Alabama).
The freshman forward turned her right ankle at the end of their last game versus West Georgia Tech in Rome, Georgia. She will be out for one to two weeks recovering. Person closed out her last stint on the hardwood with 17 points and 21 rebounds versus the Lady Golden Knights.

Freshman Mariah Price (Summerville, Georgia) would contribute 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals in the win. Southern Crescent’s Lakeisha Anderson would lead all scorers for the Lady Tigers with 14.

Georgia Northwestern will be in action next on January 23 when the Lady Cats travel up Lookout Mountain to face-off with the Lady Scots of Covenant College in a non-region match-up.

Georgia Northwestern is a member of NJCAA Region XVII, the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association, and is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia.

Bobcats Fight In Region Battle In Griffin
Georgia Northwestern Falls On Road, Four Games In Five Days

Freshman Georgia Northwestern guard Quinton Cotton (Rome, Georgia) led all scorers Friday night as the Bobcats continued their NJCAA Region XVII schedule. This time the Bobcats were on the road in Griffin, Georgia as they would fall to the Southern Tech Tigers, 71-52.

The Bobcats (5-12, 0-4) would go into the intermission down 14 points, 34-20. A tougher Bobcat squad came out in the second half, but they would still be outscored by seven in the second stanza. Eight-percent shooting from the three-point line and 65-percent accuracy from the foul line would play a part in the tough region road loss. 

Freshman guard Hunter Ivester (Trion, Georgia) would add 12 points and clean the road boards for a team-leading ten rebounds on the night. Sophomore post standouts Bud Todd (Trion, Georgia) and Alex Miller (Calhoun, Georgia) would put up decent numbers in the defeat. Todd would drop in six points, grab five rebounds, block three shots, and make two steals. Miller would add 13 points and a pair of steals in the effort.

Southern Crescent guard Contravious Critten would lead all Tiger scorers with 12 points and seven assists in the win. The Tigers sweep the season series with the Bobcats, 2-0. The two teams may meet again in the NJCAA Region XVII Post-Season Tournament in Warner-Robbins, Georgia February 24-26.

Georgia Northwestern plays on the road hardwood again Saturday afternoon at Emory-Oxford College in Oxford, Georgia. The Bobcats will play four opponents over a five-day stint including Friday night’s opponent in Southern Crescent, at Emory-Oxford Saturday, at Covenant College Monday, and finally at Toccoa Falls College in Georgia on Tuesday night.
