Wins never come easy in the Gulf South Conference. The UWG men's basketball team continued to learn that season-long lesson Thursday night at the Coliseum, holding off a furious rally in the second half to beat West Florida 94-86.
It took five players scoring in double-figures and a 53 percent shooting night for the Wolves to take this one, as West Florida's high-powered offense shot 73 percent from the floor in the second half to erase a 15-point UWG lead at the half.
The game started out as a see-saw battle, as there were seven lead changes in the first five minutes of the contest alone. With 15:05 left in the opening period, UWF's Martell Buie tied the game at 11 with a layup on an Argo fastbreak.
That was as close as West Florida would get in this game.
