DOVER, Del. – The sixth-seeded Wesley College men's basketball will have to be "road warriors" if they look to capture their first Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Championship since 2009.
Second-year head coach Dean Burrows and the rest of the Wolverines locked up their 10th consecutive CAC Championship Tournament berth during the final week of the season. The Wolverines will face the third-seeded York Spartans on Tuesday at 8 p.m. The winner of that game will face the second-seed Salisbury on Thursday at 7 p.m.
The Wolverines fared better on the road than at home during the regular season. The Wolverines won seven of their 10 games away from Wentworth Gymnasium.
The junior tandem of guard JW Lawson and forward Paul Clemons has been key for the Wolverines down the stretch of the regular season. Lawson has the third-best scoring average in the CAC putting up 16 points per game. Clemons pulled down 7.9 rebounds per game, good for fourth-best in the CAC while averaging 10.6 points per game.
Freshman Brian Cameron and sophomore Evan Anderson have also averaged double-digit points this season for the Wolverines. Cameron led the CAC in field-goal percentage (47.2) while scoring 14.5 points per game. Anderson registered 12.2 points per game. Anderson recorded a season-high 26 points in the season finale last Saturday against Mary Washington.
