AUGUSTA, Ga. – The No. 10 University of North Georgia women’s basketball team claimed at least a share of the Peach Belt Conference regular season championship and the top seed in next week’s PBC Tournament with a 66-58 win over Augusta Wednesday night.
After trading baskets in the opening minutes, North Georgia took control of the game by going on an 11-2 run midway through the first quarter. The Nighthawks led by six at the break and started the second half on a 9-0 run to lead by 15, 43-28.
Augusta answered late in the third quarter, going on a 15-0 run to tie the game at 47-47, but UNG would pull away in the fourth quarter to claim the win.
– It’s the third time in the past five seasons that UNG will be the top seed in the PBC Tournament and the first time since the 2018-19 season.
North Georgia will honor the senior class Saturday afternoon as they wrap up the regular season with USC Aiken at 1:30 p.m.
