McSwain Points the Way

Along with McSwain, three other Lady 'Canes finished in double figures on the afternoon. Guard Danisha Green had a good overall effort finishing with 13 points, seven steals and five rebounds. 

Sophomore forward Kabrina Merriweather chipped in a career high 12 points to go along with five boards.

Stormey Smith was the fouth Hurricane to finish in double figures as she finished with 12 points, ten of those came in the first half.

Southwestern used a strong defensive effort as the Lady 'Canes used 19 team steals to force 27 Skyhawk turnovers.

Point's Raven Bell was the only Skyhawk double digit scorer as she finished with 12 points.

Georgia Southwestern improves to 2-7 (0-2, PBC) on the season as Point falls to 2-11.
