VALDOSTA, GA – After getting drubbed by Mercer University 72-37 on Sunday, the Georgia Southwestern State University women’s basketball team (GSW) traveled down to Valdosta on Tuesday, November 22 with hopes of getting back on track with a win over the Valdosta State Lady Blazers. However, the Lady Hurricanes were out rebounded 39-24 in the paint and it was a factor that led to a 66-52 loss to VSU.
