SGSC Falls To Albany Tech

The South Georgia State College Hawks lost their second consecutive conference game Saturday afternoon, falling to the Albany Tech Titans 64-63.

“This was a tough one to take,” said Head Coach Cory Baldwin. “We’ve had back-to-back games where we missed a lot of easy shots around the bucket. We’ve just got to get back to work and get our confidence up.”

Tyrone Sam led the Hawks (10-2, 0-2) with 19 points. Zaquavion Smith finished with 17 points, including a perfect 4-for-4 from the three-point line. Andre Elam had nine points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

The Hawks outrebounded the Titans 40-31 while the Titans finished atop all shooting categories as well as won the turnover battle.

SGSC will travel to USC-Salkehatchie Tuesday and then host the Fort Benning All-Army Team Thursday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m in a non-conference matchup. General admission to all regular season home games is five dollars with children five and under admitted free.
