YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. (GC ATHLETICS) – The Georgia College women’s basketball team (9-9, 5-6 PBC) evened its record and picked up a second-straight victory Wednesday, Jan. 28, against Young Harris College (8-10, 5-6 PBC). Shanteona Keys (Roswell) had her best night of the season with 30 points, leading the Bobcats to a 62-48 road win.

Keys tallied her first 30-point performance of the season, coming three points shy of her career high. The senior guard shot 7-of-15 for the night, adding 13 of her 30 points from the charity stripe in 16 attempts. The other Bobcat to reach double-figures for the night was LaRice Walker (Franklin), who had 14 points and eight boards for the contest, leading the way for Georgia College in rebounds. Walker also contributed on the defensive end of the floor, totaling four of the six steals for the Bobcats.

As a team, Georgia College shot 26-of-36 (.722) from the free-throw line and 36 percent (16-45) from the floor. The Bobcats held the Mountain Lions to a 1-of-7 shooting effort from beyond the arc in the second half and 3-of-11 overall for the contest.

Leading the way for Young Harris was Peyton Robertson with an eight-point effort for the game. The Mountain Lions had some help from their bench, scoring 23 of their 48 points. Rachel Harrell and Kaycee Cash had seven points each, with Cash grabbing five rebounds for Young Harris.

Keys’ last 30-point effort came Jan. 20, 2013 against GRU Augusta, netting 33 against the Jaguars. Keys has been assaulting the recordbooks this season, coming one three-pointer from the Georgia College single game record Saturday against the University of Montevallo, and tonight came three made free-throws away from the single-game mark in that category.

The Bobcats will be back in action at the Centennial Center, Saturday, Jan. 31, hosting the Francis Marion University Patriots at 1:30 p.m.
