East Georgia State College freshman Women’s Basketball player Maranda Thornton was named Co-Player of the Week by the GCAA for the week of November 5 – 11, 2017. Thornton averaged 17.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in two games.
“I am very pleased about our weekend overall as a whole,” said Head Women’s Basketball Coach C.J. Pace. “We played some tough Florida competition and it was good for our inexperienced young ladies. We put up an average of 75 points in our opening weekend—that’s exciting! We just have to work on our defense.”
“As for Maranda, we are excited about her and what she brings to our team,” Coach Pace continued. “For a freshman to come out on the road and do what she did, the sky is the limit, and we expect some awesome things from her!”
