Tennessee Wesleyan Defeats Georgia Northwestern, 95-67

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 - by Scott Herpst

A flurry of three-pointers by the Tennessee Wesleyan University JV squad late in the first half proved to be a big blow for the Georgia Northwestern Bobcats as they dropped a 95-67 decision on the road Tuesday afternoon in Athens.



The Bobcats stayed within striking distance for most of the first half and trailed by just eight points with just less than five minutes to go. But the Bulldogs would drain four consecutive threes to push the lead to double digits and they would go on to take a 47-26 lead at the break.


Georgia Northwestern would play even with the home team for the first 12 minutes of the second half, but the Bobcats would pull away for good with a 20-10 run that pushed the lead to 31 with just under three minutes remaining. 


The Bobcats were also forced into 21 turnovers. 


Bryce Waters had a team-high 21 points, while Tyler Phillips had 13 points and seven rebounds. Micah Wheeler had nine points and seven boards, while Cole McKeehan finished with eight points.

Kolbi Suttles and J.T. Langford had five points each, followed by Deontae Jackson with four and Davian Wheeler with two. 

The Bobcats fell to 2-5 on the season with a third straight loss. They will look to break the streak at home on 
Nov. 28 as the Covenant College JV team will pay a visit to the Rossville Athletic Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
