Coaches from the NJCAA’s Region XVII selected freshman Bobcat forward Alex Miller to the All-Region First Team squad and sophomore Bobcat guard Ben Patton to the All-Region Second Team squad.
Miller, a 6-foot-5 forward who prepped at Gordon Central High School, was among the region leaders with 14 points and eight rebounds a game during his first year of varsity basketball on the collegiate level. Patton, a 5-foot-10 shooting guard from Dade County, set several records from behind the three-point line this past season.
Patton led the region in three-pointers and set a school record for the treys in a single game with nine versus Johnson University during a December road game in Knoxville, Tenn.
“We only lose two players this year in Ben (Patton) and Matt (Woods),” said Georgia Northwestern men’s head basketball coach David Stephenson. “With student-athletes like Alex already in place for the 2012-13 season, we’ll look really good this year. Recruiting has been very good to us. I plan to have all the new pieces in place by the end of the school year.”
Next season will mark the sixth year of student-athletics at Georgia Northwestern. For more information on Bobcat Athletics at Georgia Northwestern Technical College, contact the Office of Sports Information at (706) 764-3813 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
