Fellow first-year post player Terika Mostella would drop in a dozen points and clean the boards for 13 rebounds in GNTC’s fourth-straight NJCAA Region XVII win. The Lady Bobcats (10-8, 4-0) are looking to defend their region title and qualify for a second-straight national tournament berth.
Freshman Mariah Price 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.
The news, however, was not all good for the Lady Bobcats as the region's leading rebounder, Odessa Person, turned her right ankle at the end of their recent game versus West Georgia Tech. Person will miss 1-2 weeks.
GNTC will be in action next on Jan. 23 when the Lady Bobcats travel up Lookout Mountain to face off with the Lady Scots of Covenant College in a non-region match-up.
Southern Crescent Tech men 71, GNTC 52
