Last Season’s Record

11-18

 Players from last season’s Team who moved on to 4 Year Level

Sayvon Wilson, – Dalton State

Milton Rhodes – Albany State

Top Returning Players 

Eric Johnson – averaged 11.1 ppg, 6.8 apg, and 2.4 spg, while making the all-conference freshman team and the all-conference defensive team after starting in 25 of the 28 games he played in last year.

Kinsey Burgess – averaged 3.2 ppg, and 4.9 rpg, in a limited role last year playing behind NJCAA Leading Rebounder, Sayvon Wilson.  Athletic and looking to have a breakout year.

Stacy Masten – Solid defender and combo guard with a great mid-range game.  Very coachable, he is at his best when he is being aggressive on both sides of the ball.

Jahmari Etienne – Finished the season last year as our leading scorer while developing into a solid defender.  Stronger and more athletic, “Boogie” has increased the consistency of his jumper while also increasing his range.

Top Newcomers

Jervon Walker – Transfer from Mott C.C. (Michigan), versatile forward who is a proven winner.  Able to do many things on the court.

Javaughn Patterson – (Jones Co.) Combo guard with great court vision and the ability to knock down 3s while also creating for his teammates.

Tariq Jenkins – (Jonesboro) Crafty point guard with a winning pedigree.  Breaks down defenders and knows how to get his shot off in the paint.

Aaron Reddick– (Douglasville) Skilled big with a soft touch.  Knows how to contest shots without fouling and can finish around the basket to 15 feet.

2016-17 Outlook

After a tumultuous season last year, the Bobcats have reloaded.  This year’s team has 11 new comers, including 1 transfer and 10 freshmen to go along with 4 sophomores who logged heavy minutes towards the end of last season.  While they are young, Coach Jordan will have his guys ready to compete every game and the sophomore presence should provide the leadership early on to make things interesting.
