Bobcat Men Give Sellers 299th Win

Getting double-doubles from both Ryan Aquino (Roswell, Ga.) and Josh Hurst (Athens, Ga.) the Georgia College men's basketball team beat Carver Bible College Wednesday 59-47 in the Bobcat home opener at the Centennial Center.

Aquino led all scorers with 16 points, to go with a career- and game-high 18 rebounds. Hurst also pulled down a career-best 14 caroms to go with his 11 points, and junior guard Jared Holmes (Indianapolis) joined in the scoring with 13 points and seven rebounds of his own.

The Bobcats opened up a 14-point lead at the half, utilizing their 48 percent shooting from the floor (13-27) and a 10-rebound advantage (25-15) to hold the Cougars at a 35-21 score.

The second half wasn't quite as sharp shooting, but the focus moved inside, as Hurst did net nine of his 11, and Aquino six of his 16.

The victory gives head coach Terry Sellers 299 on the Bobcat sidelines, and was his 497th win overall as a collegiate coach.
