DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The Georgia College men's basketball team (2-0) picked up its second victory in as many tries Saturday, taking down Pfeiffer University (1-1) 84-63 in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC)/Conference Carolinas Challenge at the University of North Georgia.
Senior Terrell Harris (Indiantown, Florida) netted a career-best 32 points, going 10-for-13 from the floor with 4-for-5 from long range and 8-for-8 from the free-throw line. He added nine boards and four assists as well. Harris' 32 points are the most by a Bobcat since 2009, when Shaun Keaton scored 34 against North Georgia.
Freshman Chaz Berry (Fayetteville) added 18 points with a hot hand in the second half, knocking down 4-for-9 from long range and adding eight rebounds as well, both numbers the best of his young career. Senior Dwight Anderson (Minneapolis, Minnesota) added 11 points, six assists, and five rebounds to a well-rounded day.
A night removed from scoring 109 points and knocking down 18 three-point shots against host North Georgia, the Falcon offense was held in check by the Bobcats Saturday, managing just four three-point baskets for the entire game. A.J. Clark netted 29 points Friday and was held to just 10 in today's action, while Andrew Guerrero scored just seven, compared to 26 against UNG on Friday. Silvere Aluko led the Falcons today with 13 points.
The Bobcats out-shot Pfeiffer 48 percent (28-58) to just 34 percent (23-67) from the field. The 17-for-17 from the free-throw line is the best number in program history, beating the 15-for-15 effort set against Clayton State University in 2004.
The Bobcats are back in action Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m., the home opener against Anderson University.
