The GPC Jaguars are putting the final touches on another stellar regular season and have positioned themselves to make some noise in the postseason.
As of press time the Jaguars sport a 22-7 record, which includes a league best 13-4 mark in Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association play, also known as Region 17 of the GCAA.
The Jags will close out the regular season at Panther Arena on Saturday, Feb. 18, versus Waycross College, who the Jags narrowly defeated earlier this season.
After Saturday the team will enjoy a two week break before their postseason schedule begins. The time off is much deserved after a grueling two month stretch of games dating back to January 5.
Top performers for this season have included Sophomores James Johnson and Muhammad Abdul-Aleem.
According to the GCAA, Johnson is averaging 16.1 points and 10.7 rebounds per game, both of which lead the team and put him in the top five league wide.
Abdul-Aleem is averaging 14.1 points and 8.7 rebounds per contest.
Freshman Caleb Hayes has been a nice edition to this year’s squad and has shown good patience at the point while running the team’s offense.
Hayes is third in the league in assists at 5.1 per game.
