Wesley tops Marymount for crucial road win

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Wesley College men's basketball team earned an important Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) road win on Saturday over the Marymount Saints, 78-76.

The Wolverines controlled much of the game, maintaining a hold of the game over the Saints after taking the lead with 11:50 remaining in the first half. The Saints made a run late in regulation to try to get back in the game but the Wolverine pressure kept the Saints at bay to take the victory.

The starters played a key part in the game, collecting 64 of Wesley's 78 points. The offense was paced by freshman Brian Cameron. Cameron knocked down nine of his 14 shots in the game, including going 3-of-5 from the three-point line to lead all scorers with 22 points.

The junior duo of JW Lawson and Paul Clemons scored 18 and 14 points respectively. Clemons grabbed nine rebounds, a rebound shy of a double-double while Lawson corralled five bards and dished out three assists.

Off the bench, sophomore Evan Anderson contributed 12 points and junior George Cook tallied a game-high six assists.

The Wolverines outshot the Saints from the field 47.7 percent to 40.3 percent in the win.

The Wolverines (9-12, 7-7 CAC) will return to Dover to take on the York Spartans on Wednesday, Feb. 8. The CAC game will start at 8 p.m. from Wentworth Gymnasium.
