Giants take early lead over Wildcats
and don’t look back.
The Jacksonville Giants jumped out to an early 14 point lead in the 1st quarter and never looked back as they defeated the Atlanta Wildcats 122-109. The Giants All-Star center, Jermaine “Slim” Bell, lead the team in scoring with a game high 29 points, scoring 10 in the third period to keeping the score out of reach for the Wildcats. Bernard Nuggent, Jeremie Hart, and Fred Brown, also scored in the double digits contributing to the Giants second win in two days to finish up their Georgia road trip bringing their record to 2-2.
Giants’ coaches, Kevin Waters and Jerry Williams are encouraged with the way the team has been improving on the offensive side of the ball, but have been even more impressed with the way their defensive play has been elevated. Coach Williams said, “The number of fouls our guys have committed are the lowest I have seen in quite some time. Our defensive game has improved by leaps and bounds, which will prove to be a determining factor when we face Miami in our home opener.”
The Jacksonville Giants will face the Miami Midnites this Saturday, December 5th at 7:00 p.m. for “City of Jacksonville Night” at the Veterans Memorial Arena. Tickets are on sale now for this “Final Four Re-Match” at www.jacksonvillegiants.com or by calling 904-355-6531.
