Hawks roll to ninth straight win

The South Georgia State College Hawks extended their winning streak to nine games Saturday afternoon with a 106-66 win over Faith Baptist Post Graduate.

“We were very balanced today, which was a good way to come back from the Christmas break,” said head coach Cory Baldwin.

Six players finished in double digits, led by Jovante’ Spivey’s 17 points, seven rebounds, and four assists.  DeAundray Rhett had 16 points and seven rebounds, while Cody Helgeland finished with 14 points and six rebounds.  Other double-digit scorers were Tyron Sam (12 points), Jamison Williams (11 points), and JeVaughn Sanchez (10 points).

The Hawks (14-1, 3-0) now enter the meat of their schedule with 15 consecutive conference games, beginning Jan. 7 at South Georgia Tech in Americus.  They will return home next Saturday, Jan. 10 to face Georgia Perimeter.  Tip for the Georgia Perimeter game is set for 4 p.m.

“Today was our last non-conference game.  The next 15 games are going to be tough," said Baldwin.

General admission to all regular season home games is five dollars with children five and under admitted free.
