GNTC WOMEN 86 SOUTHERN CRESCENT TECH 57
Georgia Northwestern freshman forward Alyssa Nichelson (Canton, Georgia) led the way for the Lady Cats Friday night as the first-year standout racked up 19 points, six rebounds, and five steals in the 86-57 road win over Southern Crescent Tech in Griffin, Georgia.
Fellow first-year post player Terika Mostella (Cartersville, GA) would drop in a dozen points and clean the boards for 13 rebounds in Georgia Northwestern’s fourth-straight NJCAA Region XVII win. The Lady Cats (10-8, 4-0) are defending their region title of the 2011-12 season which led to a national tournament berth last March.
A noticeable absence for the Lady Cats was region-leading rebounder Odessa Person (Lineville, Alabama). The freshman forward turned her right ankle at the end of their last game versus West Georgia Tech in Rome, Georgia. She will be out for one to two weeks recovering. Person closed out her last stint on the hardwood with 17 points and 21 rebounds versus the Lady Golden Knights.
Freshman Mariah Price (Summerville, Georgia) would contribute 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals in the win. Southern Crescent’s Lakeisha Anderson would lead all scorers for the Lady Tigers with 14.
Georgia Northwestern will be in action next on January 23 when the Lady Cats travel up Lookout Mountain to face-off with the Lady Scots of Covenant College in a non-region match-up.
