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.

Not snubbed, John Collins on big stage of Slam Dunk Contest - 1 day ago
John Collins(208-PF-97, college: Wake Forest) felt snubbed.

He will again compete in the Rising Stars Challenge and debut in the Slam Dunk Contest this weekend in Charlotte. There is a long list of reasons Collins wanted a chance to show his above-the-rim abilities and join a list of Hawks who have won the contest....   [read more]

By Adam Bushman Royce O'Neale(198-SF-93, college: Baylor)< paid many dues throughout his journey to the NBA. Splitting his collegiate eligibility between the University of Denver and the University of Baylor, O'Neale did his best to prepare for the NBA draft. He would spend the 2015 draft night waiting for his name to be called, only to end the night disappointed with his name uncalled.
