Wesley’s Last Second Comeback Stopped by Gwynedd Mercy’s Defense

Gwynedd Valley, PA – In their final game of the regular season, the Wolverines came within one point of tying the Griffins within the final eight seconds but ended up falling 97-94 in a heartbreaker. The team ends the season at a 16-9 regular season record and a 10-2 conference record, landing them the number one seed in playoffs.

The Wolverines stepped up their offense during the second half, coming within just seven points of tying the Griffins at 73-66. Gwynedd Mercy began to pull away again, but Wesley found themselves within three points of tying the Griffins on Greg Bloodsworth's three-pointer with 5:59 left in the half.

Bloodsworth made another three-pointer to bring the Wolverines within one point 95-94 with eight seconds to go. Wesley was forced to foul, and Gwynedd Mercy made enough free throws to escape with the win 97-94.

Brian Cameron looked scary on the court, scoring a monstrous 37 points while dominating the paint with 11 rebounds and securing himself a double-double. He also stole the ball from two Gwynedd Mercy players.
