GSW women’s basketball team qualifies for PBC Tournament for the first time in school history

From Staff Reports

 

AMERICUS – The Georgia Southwestern State University women’s basketball team is headed to the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) tournament semifinals for the first time in school history. The Lady Hurricanes received a warm send-off today in the Storm Dome lobby from faculty, staff and students as they made their way to the bus headed for Greenwood, S.C. GSW is the #4 seed in the tournament and will play No. 1 Lander University at LU on Wednesday, March 3rd, at 5:30 p.m.

With the Hurricanes also playing in the men’s PBC tournament, GSW is the only school in the PBC to have both programs qualify for the tournament. The men’s basketball team, who earned its first PBC semifinal tournament berth since 2014, currently sits 5th in the region and will play Thursday, March 4 at 8:00 p.m. at Georgia College in Milledgeville.

The record-setting women’s basketball team clinched their first PBC tournament berth in NCAA program history as they defeated Columbus State 74-73 on a game-winning layup with three seconds left in the game last week. Freshman Jaleah Storr set the record for most points scored in a game by a GSW women’s basketball player with 35 points scored. Additionally, in their overtime win against Clayton State two weeks ago, junior, Lex Chatman set the GSW women’s basketball record for most career double doubles with 12.
