MOUNT VERNON, Ga. – Brewton-Parker Women’s Basketball welcomed Keiser (Fla.) to Mount Vernon, Ga. for a non-conference matchup on Monday night.

The Lady Barons (11-1) defeated the Seahawks (5-4) in a double-overtime thriller, 93-87 in front of an electric crowd in Gillis Gymnasium.

“Today was a fun, but tough game,” Head Coach Steve Edwards mentioned. “We battled a good Keiser team, and we battle through adversity tonight. Our group was sluggish most of the night, but I am proud of our fight.”

“Players make plays and our players stepped up big when we needed them,” Edwards added. “We will get some rest and prepare for two big games in Tennessee next week.”
