ANDERSON, S.C. – Despite a double-double from senior Scott Ferguson (Roswell, Ga.) the Georgia College men's basketball team (3-2) dropped a 69-63 game at Anderson University (6-1) Saturday.
Anderson extends its win streak to six games, thanks to three scorers in double figures. The difference came at the charity stripe, as the Trojans hit 13 more free-throws while taking 12 more than the Bobcats.
Ferguson led all scorers with 19 points to go with 11 boards. Classmate Ryan Lively (Cumming, Ga.) came off the bench for nine points, while Tarrence Chatman (Macon, Ga.) and Nate Hamilton (Snellville, Ga.) had eight each.
The Bobcats battled back from a first-half deficit to tie the game numerous times in the second half. A tight contest down the stretch, Anderson iced the game by making 12 of its last 13 free throws over the final four minutes.
The Trojans were led by 17 points from Denzail Jones, with 14 coming from Chandler Hash and 11 from Bo Holston.
