It may have sounded like a good idea to Head Men's Basketball Coach Israel Ingle when he was making the 2013-14 schedule. The Highlanders would need an opponent after the Thanksgiving break to get them ready for an upcoming conference matchup three days later. Ingle added the Shorter JV to the schedule with the thought a road trip to Rome wouldn't be all that bad. Once Wednesday night's game tipped off, he may have started to second guess himself. The Hawks made four three-ponters and took a quick 12 - 1 lead. Gordon State would battle back to gain a three-point edge at the break and then dominate the second half for a 99 - 80 victory. Devonte Thornton had another double-double as he scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Aubrey Overby also had a solid game with 10 points and 16 rebounds while Reed Dungan recorded 22 points on the night. It's now back to conference play on Saturday as GSC welcomes Central Georgia Technical College for a 4 p.m. contest in Barnesville.
