DAHLONEGA, Ga. – The University of North Georgia women’s basketball team used a strong second half performance to distance themselves from visiting Montevallo on Wednesday, taking down the Falcons, 71-56. The Nighthawks advance to 19-7 on the year with an 11-6 mark in the Peach Belt Conference.

Amber Skidgel started the game off on the right foot sinking a three-pointer just nine seconds into the contest to hand UNG an early lead. The Falcons led for just 15 seconds of game play after a Jazmine Stubblefield layup at the 8:20 mark, but North Georgia would take the lead for good with 8:05 left in the first quarter on Jordan Livesay‘s three-point basket.

– Four Nighthawks scored in double figures on the night, led by Amber Skidgel‘s 18 points.

Mackenzie Darrah and Deana Blankinship were tied with the team lead in rebounds with seven boards on the night.

– This marks the ninth consecutive win for North Georgia over Montevallo and the fourth consecutive year UNG has earned a series sweep over the Falcons.

– Even though the Nighthawks picked up a victory tonight, Clayton State’s slim win over Young Harris locks in the second-seed for the Lakers. North Georgia is locked in as the three-seed from the Western Division for the Peach Belt Conference Tournament.

UNG will play host to No. 5 Columbus State on Saturday, Feb. 18. Tipoff is set for 1:30 p.m. at Memorial Hall.
