UWG men on Point in home opener
by The home opener for the University of West Georgia men's basketball team went about as close to coach Michael Cooney's plan as possible, as the Wolves eased past Point University, 98-74, Wednesday night at The Coliseum.
The Wolves (3-0) took a 3-0 lead on a Quincy Hill lay-up and free throw and never trailed in the game.
"We wanted to make sure we set the tone at the beginning of the game and I was really pleased with how hard we played, how hard we competed. We got out to a good lead, kind of took away their heart, let them know they weren't going to come in and get an upset," Cooney said.
