Overtime loss in final home game, Jaguars turn the page

The Georgia Perimeter men’s basketball team may have ended a chapter but they have not finished the book. The Jaguars have simply turned a page. The Georgia College Athletic Association regular season is finished but, the Jaguars will continue on to the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 17 conference finals.

Ronnie Mays

Casey Wells

Georgia Perimeter College saw its last home game with the men’s basketball team in an 89-86 overtime loss to Georgia Highlands College. The final record ended 16-13 overall and 9-9 in the GCAA.

The Jaguars poured everything they had into the last game on Friday, February 27. Sophomore guard, Casey Wells, was the leading scoring tallying 23 points with 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Fellow sophomore guard, Ronnie Mays, also lead the team with 21 points and ten assists. Freshman forward, Darryl Tucker also posted a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds.

Overtime games tend to feel almost miraculous. A sensational energy of anticipation usually overcomes the arena and many times that important bucket comes from a last second shot. The tie for this game actually happened in the last 12 seconds but was just as exciting.

Mays missed a free throw but the ball was tipped back in on the rebound. Twelve seconds remained on the clock, which gave either team just enough time to take home the win but the Jaguars held their defense down tight and the second half ended with an 80-80 tie.

Darryl Tucker

Georgia Perimeter, down 40-35 after the first half, started off strong in the second half by drawing fouls, forcing turnovers and ultimately going on a 10-0 run in the first four minutes.

The Eagles battled to stay in the game, succeeding at every opportunity at to pull ahead with free throws. Georgia Highlands finished the game with an 80 percent free throw average hitting 36 of 45 shot attempts. The Eagles were able to push ahead by as much as seven points in the game.

Wells hit a three-pointer to bring the Jaguars back into a one-bucket game. Possession by possession, the Jaguars closed the gap to just three points and with just 12 seconds left on the clock the game was tied for overtime.

Overtime played out much like the first two halves. Both teams battled point for point, but Georgia Highlands had the last say.

The Jaguars won the boards 48-42 and benefitted on 15 points from second chance plays. Each team made 23 points from turnovers. The Jaguars also made 24 of their points for the game from behind the three-point line. Wells contributed to 15 points from three-pointers. The Jaguars fared well in the first half and it seemed the Eagles stayed alive with their outstanding free throw output. Georgia Highlands shot 93.3 percent from the free throw line hitting 14 of 15 shots. The Jaguars were able to out rebound 22-17 and shot better than their opponents with a 46.2 percent field goal average to their 35.4 percentage.

Ty Toney, Denzel Council and Montrel Goldstond led the Eagles in scoring with 19,18 and 15 points respectfully.

So the Jaguars, seeded sixth in the conference, now turn the page and will head into the NJCAA Region 17 conference tournament. The Jaguars travel to Americus, Georgia to face third seed South Georgia Technical College in the GCAA Region 17 Quarter-finals Tuesday, March 3 at 7 p.m. The winner will advance to semi finals on March 6.

Jaguars celebrate final Sophomore Night, fall to South Georgia Tech

The Georgia Perimeter College men’s basketball team celebrated Sophomore Night on Saturday this year for both sophomores, freshmen and, with a special surprise, the entire staff, support, alumni and fans who have formed a family over the years building up the Jaguar athletic program.

Ronnie Mays

Marvin Jones

Head coach and Athletic Director, Alfred Barney, began the celebration acknowledging his own family and all other Jaguar family, from the table staff for the games to the people who help his athletes in the classroom, as well as fans and alumni alike. The celebration was truly a special moment, solemn yet sentimental and honorable.

The Jaguars fought hard for a win to top off the night, but fell 87-79 to the South Georgia Technical College Jets.

Freshman guard, Marvin Jones, led the Jaguars with 23 points and eight rebounds. Following was sophomore guard, Ronnie Mays, with 16 points and nine assists. Players Casey Wells contributed 12 points with seven assists, Darryl Tucker contributed 11 points, six rebounds and Malik Ponder added 10 points.

The Jaguars, seeded sixth in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association, loss the half by just one point 33-32. The Jets shot 50 percent (14-18) from the field to the Jaguars’ 48 percent (13-27).

The Jets entered the final half strong tallying nine points within the first two minutes of the game quickly forcing the home team to deplete a 12-point lead. The Jaguars were able to cut the gap down to two-point gap by the 9:00 mark.

Within a couple of plays, the gap was stretched to seven points by the Jets who are seeded third so far in the GCAA.

The Jaguars kept up a fight and came as close as one point, 74-73, after Wells made a steal and went down the court for a fast break play. Wells made the assist to Jones who put up a slam dunk. With heightened momentum, the Jaguars quickly regained possession after a steal from Jones and a set three-point shot and another steal as the Jets tried to inbound the ball.

The Jets stayed in the game, capitalizing from every opportunity and were able to push the score just out of reach with only a couple of minutes left in the game. South Georgia Tech made 24 points off of the Jaguars’ 17 turnovers and made 12 steals.

The Jaguars began fouling in the last minute of the game. The Jets were 15-22 (68 percent) from the free throw line to the Jaguars’ 62.5 percent. The Jaguars were able to out rebound their opponents 40-30.

The team will have the chance to leave Jaguar Arena with one last win when they face Georgia Highlands College for their last regular season and final home game.

Jaguars outlast Titans in overtime, win 68-58

The Georgia Perimeter College men’s basketball team outlasted a tense matchup against Central Georgia Technical College Wednesday night after a last second score gave the Titans hope to break their five-game losing streak.

Ronnie Mays

Casey Wells

Almost every Jaguar saw the floor and added to the scoreboard. Sophomore guard, Casey Wells, led the Jaguars with 15 points, five assists followed by sophomore guard, Ronnie Mays, who tallied 12 points with seven assists and rebounds.

The 68-58 overtime win is hopefully the start to a winning streak for the first time this year as the Jaguars press through the program’s expected last season.

Clenching to the upper hand all game, the Jaguars did not expect the game to come to a nail biting close. With less than a minute to go, 49-47, and Titan possession, Chris Guilfo made a steal and pushed it to Andrei St. Vistal who missed the shot. Instead of the Jaguars defending for a clean rebound, they found themselves tied up and forced to call the team’s last time out.

Most teams want to foul if they are losing with under 30 seconds left in the game. The Titans not only did not need to foul, but also chose the wrong player to send to the line. Wells, who averages 19 points and 78 percent at the freethrow line, knocked down both freethrows. The score came to 53-50 with the Jaguars ahead. Only 7.6 seconds left in the game, the Titans broke from a timeout to find Guilfo who swung it to Williams in the last second. Williams made the three-point shot, an off balanced fade away, which took the game into another five minutes of overtime play.

Overtime:

The Georgia Perimeter Jaguars made the first score in overtime play and by the last two minutes of the game, pushed the gap out 60-54. Just 1:55 left in overtime, technical fouls were called on each side after on-court frustrations caused a scene between the two teams. Lawrence Freeman scored both technical shots for Central Georgia Tech and Wells scored both for Georgia Perimeter. The score came to 62-56 with Georgia Perimeter in the lead. The last six points of the Jaguars came from the foul line to win the game.

Williams led the Titans in scoring with 19 points coming off the bench. Guard Lawrence Freeman added 15 points, six rebounds and St. Vistal added ten points with five rebounds.

Freethrows proved very big this game. The Jaguars only missed four freethrows the entire game, two in each half (16-20), and were 80 percent while the Titans were only 65.4 percent from the line. Twenty-four of the Jaguars’ points came from the deep end. Georgia Perimeter was 42.3 percent from the field and capitalized from 24 points of the Titans’ 24 turnovers. They also stole the ball 15 times to Central Georgia’s 4 steals.

The Jaguars played a good first half taking the first seven points of the game and forcing the Titans to wait five minutes in before scoring their first goal. Georgia Perimeter out-shot Central Georgia Tech 40.9 percent (9-22) to 38.1 percent (8-21), and out-rebounded 16-15.

The Jaguars are back in action Saturday, Jan. 31 at 3:30 p.m. traveling to East Georgia State College in Swainsboro, Georgia.

The Jaguar’s home games are played at GPC’s Decatur Campus, 3251 Panthersville Road, Decatur, Ga. 30034.

AJ Mosby sank a game-winning three-pointer for the Eagles with less than eight seconds left on the clock giving the Jaguars little time to avenge the score.

The Jaguars battled for a 25-24 win in the first half then, widened the gap to a 10 point lead for much of the second half. Turnovers and fouls (14-2) risked late into the game gave Chattahoochee Tech the chance to close the gap to just five points with only five minutes left on the clock. Chattahoochee was 11 of 17 from the freethrow line (64.7 percent).

According to the GCAA, Chattahoochee Tech ranks first overall in points averaging 92 points per game and 52 percent in the field.
