UWG junior guard Quincy Hill put his team squarely on his shoulders Thursday evening in Pensacola, Fla., but it was too little, too late, as the Wolves fell by a 60-57 count to the West Florida at UWF Field House in Gulf South Conference action.
The game had major implications for the postseason, as the win makes both teams 6-6 in conference action. In the South Region rankings that came out on Wednesday, West Georgia was ranked fourth and West Florida just behind at sixth.
The Wolves came close on multiple occasions during this one, but never was able to take the lead. The Argos came out of the box running, building a 14-7 advantage in the first five minutes of action. West Georgia came right back, pulling to within three at 14-11 before West Florida went on a 5-0 run from 14:08 until a Gavin Field layup broke the drought at the 10:28 mark.
In the final 10 minutes of the first half, the Argos pushed their advantage out to as much as 10 points and a Lavon Gray layup with 13 seconds left in the period cut the UWF advantage to 36-28 heading into the locker room.
