The Georgia Northwestern women's basketball headed south into Alabama on Tuesday night to face Judson College, hoping to avenge the 69-26 loss they suffered at the hands of the Judson back on Nov. 8 in Rossville.
And while the short-handed Lady Bobcats (the team dressed out just five players) came up on the wrong end of the scoreboard, they turned in one of their better efforts of the season in a 48-35 loss.
Judson jumped out to a 17-4 lead after the first quarter, but were never able to put the game away as Georgia Northwestern (0-11) continued to scrap all game long.
The Lady Bobcats cut the lead to 28-18 at halftime and had it down to single digits to start the fourth quarter, but were not able to get over the hump.
Sharqueva McCoy had a double-double with 14 points and 16 rebounds for Georgia Northwestern. Sprite Dyer added nine points and eight boards, while Katy Phillips finished with eight points and seven rebounds to go with three assists. Carrie Benedict scored the final four points for the Lady Bobcats.
Kenzie McDaniel led all scorers with 25 points for Judson.
Georgia Northwestern will be in action again on Thursday, Jan. 19 when they head to the top of Lookout Mountain to face the JV squad from Covenant College. The ladies' game will tip off at 5:30, followed by the men's game at approximately 7:30.
