The Bobcats and Lady Bobcats made a three-hour drive south on Friday night and returned back home with a split of two games against former region rival Southern Crescent Tech.

In the opener, the Lady Bobcats made it four straight wins to start the season after holding on for a narrow 70-66 victory.

Tori Harvey burned the Lady Tigers for 22 points and added 10 rebounds in the victory. Jayla Stone pumped in 17 points, while center Madison Lewis picked up another double-double with 12 points and 10 boards.

Georgia Northwestern led 19-12 after the first quarter, but saw its lead trimmed to 34-31 by halftime. The Lady Tigers ended the third quarter down by just two, 52-50, but the Lady Bobcats would hold off the hosts down the stretch.

Tori Hall and Taylor Bethune had season-highs with eight and seven points, respectively, in the win. Christina DeSalvo and Mia Clark rounded out the scoring with two points apiece.

Individual scoring for Southern Crescent was not available as of press time.

In the nightcap, the Bobcats trailed by just eight points at intermission, 33-25, but their shooting turned ice cold in the second half. Frustrated by a press defense that forced 25 turnovers on the night, Georgia Northwestern connected on just 3-of-25 shooting from the floor in the final 20 minutes.

Two of the made baskets were 3-pointers and the Bobcats were 8-of-15 from the free throw line in the second half. They didn't reach their 10th point of the half until Cole McKeehan's second trey of the night with 2:30 to play.

Bryce Waters had a good night, statistically, despite the loss with 11 points, eight rebounds and six assists. McKeehan and Deontae Jackson each finished with seven points.

Khalil Brown had a game-high 19 points for SCTC, while Stevante Cromer added 12.

The Lady Bobcats will travel to Lookout Mountain on Monday for a 5:30 p.m. contest against the Covenant College JV squad, while the Bobcats will get back to action on Tuesday as they head to Athens, Tenn. to face the JV team from Tennessee Wesleyan University.

Randy Smith: How The Coaching Carousel Turns

Hiring college football coaches is not an exact science. (The recent Tennessee hiring fiasco is a perfect example) Of the 14 head coaches in the SEC this season, only three have been at their current schools for five years or more.

Am I Alone?

 Am I alone seems to be quite apt as I begin to form sentences, thoughts and concerns regarding the state of this country. I feel like I am alone trying, somehow, to justify Trump and understand why he is constantly in the middle of chaos.  Now coined as the Liar-in-Chief, Chief Foreign Affairs Coordinator acting for his pal Russian Dictator, Putin.  The silence ...

Six Things We Can Do About Mass Shootings - And Response (3)

All politics aside, the recent shooting in Florida, and every other shooting in a public place, is a senseless and, possibly, preventable tragedy. It is absurd that we can’t gather in a free society without the fear of some nut job or terrorist using us as targets.   And then the cries of “do something!” from every quarter. But, other than the obvious attempt by agenda-pushers ... (click for more)
