Jags Women and Men Sweep Second Double Header in a Week

Keshun Sherrill scored 13 points in the final 6:51 to lead Augusta University to a 76-72 win over Wingate, completing the second double-header sweep of the week after the Lady Jaguars thumped Clark Atlanta 84-48.

Sherrill scored 29 points and junior forward Kyle Doyle added 16 as the Jaguars overcame a 7 point second half deficit, taking the lead for good at 69-67 when Sherrill sank a three pointer from the left wing with 3:21 remaining after a feed by Tyvez Monroe. Two trips later, the All-American guard converted a three point play to give the Jaguars a 5 point lead. And after a Wingate basket, he sank a floater with :41 left to provide a 74-69 cushion before sealing the game with two free throws while .3 seconds remained.

With three starters on the bench with foul trouble for an extended period during the second half, Doyle's contributions were key. The 6'6" Josey graduate made 7 of 8 field goals and scored 6 points during a key 8-2 Augusta run that erased Wingate's 52-45 second half lead. Tamyrik Fields and Deane Williams made key baskets to extend that run and give Augusta two brief leads before Sherrill's game ending barrage.

Lady Jags improve to 2-0; Four player score 10 or more

The Lady Jaguars assisted on 16 of their 32 field goals, and four players scored in double figures in their lopsided win. Brianna Middleton led the way with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Abrea Harris scored 15, Breonna O'Conner 14, and Cynara Pitt 13.
