Georgia Northwestern Women Smother Toccoa Falls In 2nd Half

Saturday, January 27, 2018 - by Scott Herpst

The Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats have had plenty of games over the past few years where they have scored at least 33 points in the second half.

But a second half in which they held an opponent to just two points? It had never happened before...until Saturday.

Nursing a 30-25 halftime lead at the Rossville Athletic Center, the Navy-and-Silver simply put a lid on their basket, nailed it down and cemented it shut over the final two periods to send visiting Toccoa Falls College back to the northeast Georgia mountains with a 63-27 loss.

It was the second win in a row for Georgia Northwestern (9-5) after what had been a four-game losing streak.

Once again, Tori Harvey had the hot hand. The ex-Heritage Lady General scored 19 points and grabbed 19 rebounds in the victory. Harvey is averaging 21.8 points per game this month.

Taylor Bethune had a nice afternoon with 14 points, while Christina DeSalvo had a dozen points and eight boards. Katy Phillips dropped in eight points, while Madison Lewis scored six and pulled down eight rebounds. Mia Clark filled her stat sheet with four points, five rebounds and four assists.

The Lady Bobcats wil be back on the floor on Feb. 3 for their annual Pink Game to promote breast cancer awareness. The game with Florida College will tip off at 1 p.m.

Jeff Styles, I Believe You - And Response (5)

I am glad that Jeff Styles presented the details of the event on his website.  Just because the government alleges a crime does not mean guilty. A criminal charge is an allegation by government. Sure, that allegation can be very serious, but the charge is still an unproven allegation until a court of law and Lady Justice has her review of the proof.  A person gets ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Political Dark Side

If ever there becomes a movie that reveals the rotten side of politics, the script has just been written. My goodness, it has all of the hot words: liberals, Muslims, bedroom beds, spouse abuse, non-transparency (or is it collusion,) kids in shock, a seated member of Congress, vulgar language, the Democratic National Committee, a woman scorned, and – best of all – an election. ...
