In a game of runs it would be North Georgia (7-9, 2-8 PBC) that would get the final one as Clayton State (5-11, 2-8 PBC) dropped an 80-65 decision in an NCAA Division II men's basketball game on Wednesday, January 23.

Freshman guard Savvon Delgado (183-G) obliterated his career-high with 15 points in just 18 minutes, knocking down three triples in the process, to lead the Lakers.

Following a quick free throw by Clayton State in the opening seconds, North Georgia erupted for a 33-12 lead behind nine points apiece from Zach Cottrell and Jack Howard. And then it was the Lakers' turn.

With a spark off of the bench, Delgado saw his first extensive playing time in the Orange and Blue as he provided eight points in a 14-0 run that nearly erased the advantage that UNG had built up, cutting all the way to 33-27 by the 3:19 mark.

The Nighthawks answered with a 9-2 stretch, fueled by six points from De'Undra Singleton, to extend to a 42-29 lead with 1:02 on the clock before a pair of Hunter free throws and a Delgado triple made it 42-34 heading into the break.

That would change dramatically over the first 9:43 as UNG came out on fire, putting together an 18-10 run that extended their lead to 60-44. As had been the case all night, it would be punch-counter punch and this time the Lakers would respond with a 10-2 stretch that pulled them to within 62-54 by the 7:06 mark.

An exchange of baskets kept it at that margin but an 8-2 stretch by the Nighthawks broadened that gap to 72-56 with 4:10 to play. From there they would go on to close out the 80-65 victory.

The Lakers return to action when they host UNC Pembroke in a rematch of last season's 2018 Peach Belt Conference Tournament Championship Game. Game time is set for approximately 3:30 p.m. following the women's contest at The Loch.

NOTES
Delgado blew past his previous career-high of three points and his 18 minutes were six more than he had played all season.
