Arlington, Va - Wesley men's basketball falls just short of a win against the Marymount Saints in the first game of their unconventional season.

Marymount held their lead through the end of the game. With a final score of 76-90, Marymount gave Wesley their first loss of the season. 

The Wolverines look ahead to take on Christopher Newport at home on Sunday, March 7th. Tip-off is set for 3 pm.
