A hot-shooting Florida National University squad dropped the Georgia Northwestern Bobcats to 1-2 on the season Saturday afternoon as they claimed a 100-70 victory on the second and final day of the Trinity Baptist College Classic in Jacksonville, Fla.
The Bobcats trailed 60-46 at intermission, but couldn't keep up with the Conquistadors, a fellow USCAA member, especially in the second half.
Fabian MacDonald and Terrence Johnson had 19 points each for Florida National (3-2), followed by Petar Skoknic with 15, Chris Hall with 14 and Christian Anglada with 12.
Tyler Phillips dropped in 19 points for the Bobcats, adding nine rebounds and a pair of blocked shots. Bryce Waters added 14 points and five boards, while Kolbi Suttles and Davantae Kimble finished with 11 each.
The Conquistadors controlled the glass, outrebounding the Bobcats, 45-29.
Georgia Northwestern will play in Powell, Tenn., this Thursday at 7 p.m. against The Crown College before returning home next Saturday to face longtime rival West Georgia Tech at 3 p.m. in the Rossville Athletic Center.
The game will also serve as Food Drive Night for the Bobcats. Free admission will be given to fans who donate a non-perishable food item at the door.
