Clayton State guard has stats to be Peach Belt player of year

Who's Hot


Drameka Griggs. The speedy guard for Clayton State is averaging 19.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.9 steals and 3.5 assists a game. Don’t be surprised if she wins Peach Belt Conference Player of the Year.

Who's Not

Chad July. Who could have seen this train wreck coming? The senior center transfer from Flagler was expected to be the missing piece for an Augusta State team with designs on making a deep postseason run. But July never became that dominant force in the middle, and he will go down as one of the biggest disappointments in Jaguar history.

Paine plays host to Augusta State on Thursday (5:30 p.m., women; 7:30, men) in the new HEAL Complex. Jaguars coach Dip Metress is 15-1 all-time against the Lions, but Paine has a real shot of knocking off Augusta State.

Men's Reports

Augusta State (8-4, 5-2): With Harold Doby out indefinitely and July gone, this team might need to change its style of play with no size inside the paint.

Paine (5-8, 3-3): Lions play a key two-game stretch in three days against Fort Valley State and Albany State.

USC Aiken (9-4, 5-1): Pacers now have to be considered the favorite to win the Peach Belt East Division.

Women's Reports

Augusta State (10-2, 4-2): Lady Jaguars are bonding with Jemimah Ashby out. This team might be ready to make a run at a division title.

Paine (6-9, 4-2): Lady Lions won’t go far shooting 60 percent from the foul line.

USC Aiken (12-1, 5-1): Losing All-American forward Kayla Harris for the season with torn knee ligaments means winning the East Division is no longer a lock.
