ALBANY, Ga. – The Georgia College Women's Basketball team (1-4) was outpaced in the second half by Albany State University (1-4), falling 62-41 in non-conference action Wednesday evening.
The Bobcats held the early lead after the first quarter, outscoring the Rams 12-10 in the opening period. Albany State fought back in another near-evenly matched second frame to tie the game at 25 heading into the half.
A pair of Rams led the charge in the second half, as a 23-6 third quarter surge saw Albany State pull ahead. Alexandria James and Ciera Norman each finished in double-digits with 15 and 10 points, respectively.
Though Georgia College had more rebounds (43) and more trips to the free throw line (18), the valiant effort fell short. 20 of the rebounds came on the offensive glass.
The Bobcat women return to the court Monday, Nov. 25 for the home opener in a rematch with the Rams. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Centennial Center.
