ANDERSON, S.C. - The Georgia College Women's Basketball team (0-1) took the fight to defending Conference Carolinas Champions and National No. 13 Anderson University (1-0) Friday night, winning the fourth quarter but falling overall 86-65 on the road. 

 

Junior guard Keyonna Wesley (Pearson, Georgia) poured in a career-high 19 points in the lid-lifter. Wesley hit three from beyond the arc and went 8-for-16 overall. 

Sophomore Harper Vick (Marietta, Georgia) joined her in double-digit scoring with 11 points, hitting all four of her free-throw attempts. Freshman Caroline Wysocki (Flowery Branch, Georgia) showed little jitters in her first collegiate action, scoring 12, including a pair from long range. 

 

The Bobcats took the fourth 17-14, but the Nationally-ranked Trojans put up 20-plus points in each of the first three quarters to leap in front. 

 

The Trojans hit over half of their shots at 58 percent, the Bobcats controlling points off turnovers 23-18. 

 

The Bobcats are back in action tomorrow, taking on Wingate University at 11:30 a.m.
