Hoskins, a 5-foot-9 freshman, dropped in 11 points and added 12 rebounds, four steals, and a block, but it was not enough as GNTC fell to the Auburn University feeder school, 73-56.
Lady Bobcat co-captain, sophomore Mia Morrow, had a big night with 14 points and three steals. Fellow sophomore Jessica Williams pulled down 11 rebounds in the effort while freshman guard Jasmine Heath had nine points and nine rebounds.
Georgia Northwestern shot 20-of-28 (71 percent) from the free-throw line in the loss.
“We are improving in a lot of key areas,” said GNTC head coach Jim Williams. “We are inching ever close to knocking off one of these bigger programs. It’s really prepping us for our region play.”
