ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The Georgia College Women's Basketball team (5-6, 3-2 PBC) saw a four-game win streak snapped Saturday at Flagler College (6-4, 2-2 PBC) in an 84-53 loss.

In a rematch of the 2018 Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Quarterfinals, the Saints got their revenge, thanks in large part to taking the third quarter 23-8.

Senior Sydney Cleveland (Gainesville, Georgia) scored a season-high 18 points, hitting half of her shots from long range (4-8) and overall (7-14) from the floor. She also tied for the team-high with three rebounds.

That last category was what got the Bobcats into trouble, as Georgia College was out-rebounded 51-21, resulting in a 14-3 advantage in second-chance points for Flagler.

Sophomore guard Keyonna Wesley (Pearson, Georgia) helped with 11 points, her third trip to double-digit scoring this season. Fifteen different Bobcats saw minutes today, but Georgia College couldn't find the right group to stem off the Saints' attack.

The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, Jan. 9 at noon, playing host to Georgia Southwestern State University.
