AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) announced its year-end award-winners Thursday, with Georgia College Men's Basketball's Jordan Thomas (Conyers) earning Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Freshman of the Year.
Thomas led the team and is 14th in the PBC with 13.7 points per game. He netted 20 or more points five times with a season-best 27 against USC Aiken. The dynamic guard's scoring average rose to 14.8 against conference opponents. Thomas is the second Bobcat in the last three years to be named the Freshman of the Year after Isaac Thomas (Trion) won the honor in 2016.
The Bobcat basketball season has come to a close, a year in which they finished two games out of the PBC playoffs. The Bobcats had a strong month of December, winning 4-of-5 and taking two of their first three conference matchups.
