Wolves 6-0 after beating Tennessee Temple
The UWG offense rolled on Saturday afternoon at The Coliseum as the West Georgia Wolves ran their record to 6-0 with an 82-54 blasting of Tennessee Temple on Thanksgiving weekend.
Three UWG players scored in double-figures and the Wolves hit on 51 percent of their shots to run the winning streak to six straight to start the 2011-12 season. Senior Da'Ron Sims scored at least 20 points for the third straight game, putting up 26 points to lead the second-highest scoring output of the year thus far. The Wolves scored 98 against Point in the home opener on November 16.
After the Crusaders hit the opening shot of the game, a three-pointer from Weedlens Beavil, the Wolves took complete control. A pair of jumpers in the lane from Sims sparked a 22-4 run from West Georgia and the Wolves never looked back. A fastbreak dunk from Sims at the 4:23 mark of the first half put UWG in front 33-10, giving the Wolves their biggest lead of the opening half.
But Tennessee Temple clawed their way back into contention, going on a 15-3 run to close out the half and and jumper from Jarrett Smith cut the Wolves' advantage to 11 at 36-25 heading into the locker room at the break.
Just over a minute into the second half, Smith hit a layup that cut the Wolves' lead to nine, the first time that the UWG lead had been less than double-digits since the 13:39 mark of the first half. West Georgia then reeled off 16-straight points to squash any thought of an upset from the Crusaders.
