SoCon Basketball for Thursday, December 2, 2021
But First - Wednesday's recap: This was not a good night for the SoCon, only two wins out of 5 games. Only Western Carolina and Mercer collected wins on this disappointing night.
-Warren Wilson 47 - Western Carolina 102
Western Carolina had a season-best six players finish in double figures and just missed a pair of school records as the Catamounts cruised to a 102-47 victory over Warren Wilson on Wednesday evening in no conference action on Ingles Court at the Ramsey Center. WCU improves to 4-4 overall, while the contest was considered an exhibition for Warren Wilson.
-The Citadel 58 - UNC Asheville 65
The Citadel could not overcome a cold shooting night in falling, 65-58, at UNC Asheville Wednesday night inside the Kimmel Arena. With just over nine-and-a-half minutes to play, Asheville went on a 9-0 run to open a 10-point advantage. The Citadel battled back and pulled within three on a pair of Roche free throws, but the Bulldogs were unable to get any closer.
-Richmond 73 - Wofford 64
The Wofford men's basketball team used an explosive 23-9 second-half run that brought the game within one possession with 2:25 left to play on Wednesday evening, though, the Richmond Spiders (4-4) would manage to hold off the Terriers in front of a raucous crowd at Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium, 73-64.
-Mercer 73 - Kennesaw State 71
The third season of the Greg Gary era earns its first road win of the 2021-2022 season over Kennesaw State, 73-71, while four Bears scored in double digits.
-ETSU 56 - UAB 70
The ETSU men’s basketball team saw its five-game win streak snapped on Wednesday night as the Buccaneers fell 70-56 to preseason Conference USA favorite UAB inside Bartow Arena.
