Posted on Jul 03, 2019


Two members of South Georgia State College’s 2018-2019 men’s basketball team have been recognized by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) for their academic achievements.

Will Ferguson, a 6’8” freshman from Yulee, Fla., and Riley Meloncon, a 6’2” sophomore from Pikeville, Tenn., were both third team selections to the NJCAA’s All-Academic Team. Players selected to the third team must have a grade point average between 3.60-3.79 to qualify.

“I am so excited for Will and Riley, because both guys represent what it is to be a student-athlete at SGSC,” said head coach Cory Baldwin.

Ferguson will return to SGSC for his sophomore season, while Meloncon has signed to play for Tennessee Wesleyan University (NAIA) next season. They join former Hawks Cody Helgeland and Daniel Peace as NJCAA Academic All-Americans.
