Wolves Thrash CAU in Atlanta
Atlanta, GA - The UWG men's basketball team has started the 2011-12 season off with a 2-0 bang after Saturday's 79-63 drubbing of Clark Atlanta in the GSC/SIAC Challenge on the campus of Morehouse College.
The Wolves were coming off of tough season opening win on Friday night against Morehouse, needing a layup from Da'Ron Sims in the waning seconds. But on this night, West Georgia opened up a big first-half lead, then used a torrid 56 percent shooting effort in the second half to pull away for the 2-0 start.
Clark Atlanta started off quickly in the opening period, jumping out to a 5-1 lead in the first two minutes of the game. But the Wolves quickly turned that around and led 15-11 on a dunk from Marcus Cowan at the 10:05 mark. The run continued through the end of the half, as the Wolves went from an 11-11 tie with 12:58 left to a 34-22 lead at the break.
Gavin Field kicked off the second half with a three-pointer that contined the Wolves run and West Georgia led by as much as 32 points in the final half of the tournament for both teams.
