Lady Titans Fall on the Road in GCAA First Round

February 23, 2016

Atlanta, Ga – The Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) Lady Titans suffered a tough 99-91 first round playoff loss at Atlanta Metropolitan College on Tuesday, February 23. The Lady Titans ended their season with a 9-7 conference record, and 18-12 overall.

In their third match-up of the season against Atlanta Metropolitan College, the Lady Titans got out to a fast-paced start on both ends of the court. Forcing their opponent to play man defense, the Lady Titans were able to penetrate the lane and score in the paint. In true form, sophomores Aleisha Merriweather and Ra'Keta Shelton had solid games for the Lady Titans, as they were able to score at-will.

At the halfway mark, Merriweather and Shelton accounted for 36 of the Lady Titans' 43 points. Aleisha Merriweather scored 19 points, eight rebounds, and one assist, while Ra'Keta Shelton pulled in 17 points, seven rebounds, and one steal at halftime.

Down by eight to begin the third quarter, the Lady Titans struggled to find an offensive. The team's offensive woes led to a defensive lapse late in the third quarter, as Atlanta Metro was able to connect several times from long range. Displaying their resilience, the Lady Titans stayed alive on offense by attacking the paint and getting fouled on their shots at the basket. While able to get to the free throw line, the team only connected for 19-of-35 at the charity stripe.

Seeing their largest deficit of 15 points in the fourth quarter, the Lady Titans were able to rally behind the leadership and strong play of Merriweather and Shelton. But the team's efforts proved to be too late, as Atlanta Metro was able to solidify their lead at the free throw line as the Lady Titans were forced to foul.

Earning her 18th double-double of the season, Ra'Keta Shelton scored a game and season-high 34 points, 14 rebounds, and one steal. Aleisha Merriweather recorded her 11th double-double of the season, finishing with 29 points, 14 rebounds, and two assists.

Lady Titans Fall Short In GCAA Semi-Finals

February 28, 2015

Albany, GA - The Central Georgia Technical College women's basketball team's season came to an end Friday night, with a tough 68-73 loss to South Georgia Technical College in the semi-finals of the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) Division I Region XVII tournament.

Like much of the season, freshman Ra'Keta Shelton led the Lady Titans with 13 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Shelton's impressive showing marked her fifteenth double-double game of the season, but was not enough to lead the team to victory.

With a timid start to the game, the Lady Titans struggled offensively and faced an early 8-1 deficit within the first two minutes of the game. The team's scoring woes were compounded by their inability to pick-up rebounds, as the Lady Titans were outnumbered 10-to-24 by South Georgia Tech on the offensive boards.

Trailing the Lady Jets for much of the first half, the Lady Titans got their first lead of the game at the 8:20 mark on a made jump shot by Aleisha Merriweather. At the end of the first half, the Lady Titans went on a 7-2 run, in which they were able to secure a 39-34 lead at halftime.

The Lady Titans started the second half strong, with a big three-point shot by freshman A'Chanti Layfield. Seemingly forgetting their first half jitters, the team outscored South Georgia Tech for the majority of the second half, but was unable to sustain the lead down the stretch. Late-game fouls by the Lady Titans resulted in made free-throws for the opposing South Georgia Tech.

Throughout the game the team struggled from the free-throw line, where they went 22-of-35. The team's poor shooting extended beyond the charity stripe, as the Lady Titans only shot 22-51 from the field.

On the defensive end, the Lady Titans had to contend with the tough play of South Georgia Tech's Alexis Armstrong and TaQuandra Mike. Armstrong led all scorers with 21 points and 14 rebounds, while Mike scored 17 points and went 4-for-11 from behind the three point line.

Rounding out the Lady Titan' double-digit scorers were sophomores Mercedes Jenkins and Rayven Thomas. Jenkins added 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal, while Thomas had 12 points and six rebounds.

The Lady Titans ended their 2015 season with a 21-9 overall record, giving them their second twenty-plus win season in program history.

With the victory, the Lady Titans move to 21-8 on the season, and advance to the semi-final round of the Georgia College Athletic Association's (GCAA) tournament.

Off to a rough start, the Lady Titans trailed East Georgia State 16-6 with 15:08 to go in the first half. Unable to respond to defensive pressure, the Lady Titans committed 18 first half turnovers, and missed several point-blank baskets. After facing their largest deficit of the game, the Lady Titans rallied behind the tough play of Breanna Bryant, Aleisha Merriweather, and Ra'Keta Shelton. Bryant hit two big three pointers to cut into East Georgia State's lead, while Merriweather and Shelton pulled down 11 combined rebounds. All three players each recorded nine points at halftime, giving the Lady Titans a 32-30 edge.

Making some mid-game adjustments, the Lady Titans opened the second half with a more aggressive and balanced team attack. Both Bryant and Lauren Duncan connected from long-range to extend the team's lead. Shelton contributed 13 points and grabbed six rebounds in the second half alone.

Aleisha Merriweather finished the game with 15 points, six rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Lauren Duncan scored 13 points and added two rebounds, three assists, and one steal. Breanna Bryant scored 12 points and contributed two assists and two steals.
