Men’s B-Ball Clinches First Round

The Emory & Henry men’s basketball team has officially secured a spot in the ODAC tournament quarterfinals in Salem, Virginia, next week after an impressive showing the week of Feb. 12. The Wasps started off last week with a rematch against Washington & Lee.

The Generals defeated the Wasps earlier in the season. Game two between the rivals was a different story as the Wasps proved to be too much for W&L. After the Generals opened up the game leading 8-0, E&H would go on a 21-4 run to take their first lead of the game.
