Warren Wilson’s defending national basketball champs win home debut

The Owls spent fall break helping Central S.C. Habitat for Humanity

 

In its opening game of the 2013-14 season, the Warren Wilson College men’s basketball team lost for the first time in 13 games, dating all the way back to January. So how did the defending USCAA champions (DII) respond to that season-opening defeat under first-year coach William Monts? By starting another winning streak, of course.

After knocking off Berkeley College of New York 72-63 on Nov. 2 in the Johnson & Wales USAA Classic in Charlotte, the Owls opened their home schedule Nov. 4 with another victory, 69-52 over Barber-Scotia. Rashad Ali and Ty Johnson led the way with 18 points each as WWC pulled away from a three-point lead at halftime. Read more here.

The Owls return to game action Nov. 6 vs. Milligan College, with a 7 p.m. tipoff in DeVries Gymnasium. The following night, the Warren Wilson women’s basketball team opens its season against St. Andrews College, at 6 p.m. in DeVries. Yes, another hoops season is definitely heating up.

Footnote: Although Warren Wilson and Barber-Scotia were opponents on the basketball court, the two colleges formed a special bond in June when Warren Wilson students led by landscaping crew supervisor Tom LaMuraglia helped Barber-Scotia  recover from major storm damage.
