Pair of 15-Point Games Not Enough, GC Women Fall at Montevallo 51-41
MONTEVALLO, Ala. – The Georgia College women's basketball team (4-20, 2-13 PBC) dropped a tough Peach Belt Conference (PBC) West Division contest Saturday at the University of Montevallo (10-14, 5-10 PBC) 51-41.
The Bobcats led at the half 22-21 but it wouldn't hold as the Falcons ran away in the second half on their home court.
The freshman duo of Enisha Donley (Loganville, Ga.) and Shanteona Keys (Roswell, Ga.) scored 15 points each to power the offense for GC. Keys added five rebounds and a pair of assists, while Donley went 6-of-11 from the floor and added four caroms of her own.
The leading rebounder once again for the Bobcats was rookie Belinda Schaafsma (Momence, Ill.), yanking down eight boards, including six on the defensive end.
Tied at 31-31 with just over 10 minutes left in the second half, the Falcons promptly went on a 12-3 run to take over control of the game.
Neither team shot well in the defensive battle, as GC actually out-shot UM 30 percent (15-50) to 28 percent (15-54). The difference came at the charity stripe, as the Falcons hit 19-of-21 to GC's 6-of-10.
The Falcons' lone double-digit scorer was Tiffany McClure with 12, but the balance of five others with six or more points helped Montevallo to the win.
The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 5:30 p.m., taking on Georgia Southwestern State University on the road.
