Tornados blow out the weekend Both BC Basketball Teams find victory against Lenoir-Rhyne By Lizzie Graham Staff Writer

If you weren't able to attend the televised basketball game this weekend, you missed out! Our women's and men's team gave it their all down to the last minute and walked away with outstanding victories. The televised games were sponsored by Ingles and the athletic staff, who helped create an incredible atmosphere for all that attended. The Lady Tornados came through with an 8372 victory over the Lady Bears of Lenoir-Rhyne. The women’s team had a few players that stood out. Katie Williams made history for the Lady Tornados by scoring a career-high 35 points this weekend. It was the most points scored by a Lady Tornados in one game. Williams had 31 points during an overtime victory earlier this season against Carson-Newman on Jan. 15. Another teammate, Shelby Wolfe, played in her first game since Jan. 3. Wolfe, who had previously suffered an injury to her hand, finished the game with a double-double: 11 points and 10 rebounds. Also notable, Sophomore Madison Lenox put 23 points on the board with 7 rebounds, four steals, and three assist. The men’s team walked away with a victory of 74-63 over LR. The Tornados now stand 9-11, and 7-7 in the SAC. Miles Leathers showed up for the Tornados, scoring 20 points. Following closely behind him, with 17 points, was Darius Moose. Adding to the duo running the floor for the Tornados was teammate Trevon Shaw, adding 15 points to the board for the men’s team. Both Tornado teams will return with a home game this Wednesday against rival team Mars Hill. Women’s tip off is at 6 p.m. We encourage everyone to come out and support the teams by cheering them on to another victory!

By Jordan Laws Staff Writer

The Great Decisions lecture series will begin for Brevard College on February 4th. The discussions will cover everything a student in the twenty first century needs to consider On February 4th the lecture will begin with Syria’s Refugee Crisis presented by Nora Nassri of the University of South Carolina in Columbia. She will discuss a topic that has been on the global stage since March of 2011, when a civil war displaced Syrians from their homes. Four years have passed and the crisis still exists for the Syrians who aren’t fortunate enough to have a stable home. To become more familiar with the background of the Syrian Refugee Crisis feel free to go to the website and read the short three paragraphs of information on the global humanitarian issue. Nora Nassri is a Doctor of Philosophy, Political Science and Government and also has a B.A. in Politics and History according to her LinkedIn profile. Her educational background isn’t the only thing that qualifies Dr. Nassri to lead this discussion; her close ties to Syria also make her a prime candidate for discussing this topic. This lecture is not to be missed. The second lecture will be led by Liliana Castro of Buncombe County Schools and she will discuss Brazil’s Metamorphosis on February 11th. The lecture will cover Brazil’s transformation after an economic downfall in the 1990’s to one of the world’s emerging superpowers. Like any superpower, Brazil is starting to experience income inequality, weak civic institutions, and poor regional leadership according to an article posted on Blue Ridge Community College’s website Privacy in the Digital Age is the third lecture presented by Jagdeep Bhandari of Mars Hill University on February 18th. He will discuss a topic that affects all citizens who are invested in the digital age. Privacy is an import
