No. 16 UNG women down Flagler

By University of North Georgia Sports Information

ST. AUGUSTINE — Caroline Martin scored a game-high 23 points as the No. 16 University of North Georgia women's basketball team took down Flagler in non-conference action Friday afternoon, 89-81.

After the Saints took an early lead, the Nighthawks hit back-to-back threes to take a 10-6 lead midway through the first quarter. The UNG lead hovered in single digits until Flagler stormed back midway through the second period to take a five point lead, 34-29. North Georgia would then go on a 10-2 run to finish the half to lead by four at the break.

The game continued to go back-and-forth with the Nighthawks leading by as many as eight and trailing by two at multiple points in the fourth quarter. The Saints hit a three-pointer with 2:43 left to tie the game at 81 before North Georgia finished on an 8-0 run to earn the second win of the season.

NOTES
-- Martin's 23 points came on 7-of-14 shooting, including three shots from beyond the arc. Julianne Sutton finished with 20 points. Abby Hubert added 13, while Abbie Franklin finished an assist short of a double-double with 12 points and nine dimes.

-- Sutton has now scored double figures in 37 straight outings, dating back to the run to the Elite Eight in the 2018-19 season. The senior has scored 20 or more points in 19 of the games in that streak, including four of the last six.

-- North Georgia was 10-for-20 from beyond the arc, the most made threes in a game since November 16, 2019, against Tusculum at home.

NEXT UP
The Nighthawks will open up inside the UNG Convocation Center on Wednesday, December 16, with a game against Carson-Newman. Tipoff is set for 3:30 p.m.
