Wasps Sting the Eagles on the Court

If there is something the Emory & Henry men’s basketball team is good at, it is bouncing back after a tough loss. When they lost to Washington & Lee by one point, they bounced back with a convincing 109-76 win at Shenandoah. This time, after a tough 76-59 loss to Guilford, they bounced back with another convincing win, with an 89-67 win at Bridgewater.

The Wasps had an excellent game, both on the offensive and defensive side of the court. Sophomore Alic Wynn had a terrific game, leading the Wasps in both points and rebounds, with 23 points and 14 rebounds. Wynn also shot 100% on the floor, making all eight of his field goals. First-year Colin Molden had a great game off the bench, contributing 16 points, 3 assists, and led the Wasps in assists with 5. Junior John Shelor also had a great night shooting the ball, going 6-10 from the field, while adding 15 points for the Wasps. Another Wasp who was shooting the ball well was sophomore Clif Conley, who had 12 points off the bench, making all of shots from beyond the perimeter, going 3 for 3. For the Eagles, it was an all-around rough night. Bridgewater got outrebounded 40-22, turned the ball over 16 times, while E&H scored 21 points of their turnovers. The Eagles were led by first-year Davrion Greer, who had 19 points off the bench. 5 Bridgewater players led the Eagles in rebounds with 3, they were Kevin Saylor, Efe Balfour, Zach Kopp, Davrion Greer, and Keonte Dennis.

The Wasps improved to 11-6 overall, and 5-3 in ODAC play, while the Eagles fell to 5-12, and 2-6 in ODAC play. It has been a tough year for a youthful Bridgewater team. However, they do have a promising future, as both a first-year and sophomore led them in scoring against E&H. The Eagles are hoping to bounce back after a loss like this when they play at Washington & Lee on Wednesday, Jan. 25.

For the Wasps, it has been a great season. With 8 games left, E&H is looking to improve in the standings before the ODAC Tournament. A win at Roanoke College on Wednesday, Jan. 25 would certainly help their push to a top four seed in the ODAC tournament. These final 8 games are going to be a crucial stretch for the Wasps. Some of the games include Washington & Lee at home, whom have beaten Emory & Henry earlier, and a trip to Guilford.
