North Georgia's Hill honored as PBC Player of the Week
DAHLONEGA –– University of North Georgia women's basketball player Mimi Hill has been honored as Peach Belt Conference AstroTurf Women's Basketball Player of the Week.
Hill stepped into the leadership role for the Nighthawks in a big way last week, averaging 33 points and 7.5 rebounds per game in two wins. The senior scored 30 with seven rebounds in a win at Montevallo, then caught fire for 36 points and eight boards in the Nighthawks' victory over No. 19 Clayton State.
Hill shot 58 percent from the floor in the two games (22-38) and hit 60 percent of her 3-pointers. Against the Lakers, she hit 11 of 17 shots from the floor, four of five three-pointers and all 10 of her free throws, shooting 94% from the line on the week.
Hill is now second in the PBC in scoring with 21.4 ppg and she also leads the league in three-point field goal percentage and free throw percentage.
North Georgia (11-1, 5-0) returns to action on Wednesday, January 15th when the Nighthawks host No. 22 Georgia College in a Peach Belt Conference West Division challenge at 5:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall.
