AUBURN, Ala. – Digging an early 32-0 hole, the Georgia College women's basketball team dropped an exhibition contest 85-25 at Division I Auburn University Sunday.
Auburn came out a house of fire defensively, and combined with the jitters of the largely-freshmen Bobcat squad held GC to no field goals in the first half. Georgia College reached the halftime horn trailing 43-6, all of the Bobcat points coming on free throws.
The 'Cats showed flashes of success in the second half with a slightly more competitive 42-19 period against the 2011 Women's NIT qualifiers.
Freshman Shanteona Keys (Roswell, Ga.) was the team leader with eight points, aided by six from senior guard Myeshia Simms (Macon, Ga.). Simms added four steals and an assist. Rookie Terryuana Godwin (LaGrange, Ga.) tallied five points in just six minutes.
Auburn was led by 15 points off the bench from Camille Glymph, with a double-double from Chantel Hilliard at 10 points and a game-best 15 boards.
The Bobcats are back in action Thursday, Nov. 3 at 5:30 p.m. traveling to Mercer University for another Division I exhibition.
