South Georgia State College’s men’s basketball team defeated Combine Academy Charlotte Friday night 95-74 on the first day of the two-day Applebee’s Okefenokee College Classic.

“Tonight was an all-around great team game,” said head coach Cory Baldwin.

Zaquavian Smith, the reigning GCAA Player of the Week, led the Hawks (5-1) with 20 points, three assists, and three steals. Zaire Cook had a double-double of 19 points and 12 rebounds along with two steals. O’Showen Williams finished with 13 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds, while McKinley Chambless rounded out the top scorers with 10 points and six rebounds.

The win helped the Hawks rebound from a loss earlier this week on the road to USC-Salkehatchie.
