Owls Outgun Bobcats In North Carolina Shootout

Saturday, December 2, 2017

Warren Wilson College is used to lighting up the scoreboard.


The Owls leading all USCAA Division II teams at 109.5 points per game, more than 13 points a game better than their next closest competitor.


They kept up that torrid pace Friday night against the visiting Georgia Northwestern Bobcats.

The Owls went 50-of-99 from the field, including going 27-of-63 from behind the 3-point arc, and added a 21-for-29 performance from the foul line and raced to a 148-85 win in Asheville, N.C.


Seven of Warren Wilson's eight players reached double figures and five had 21 or more points. Jordan Gant pacd the high-flying Owls with 26.


Deontae Jackson scored a season-high 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Bobcats. Tyler Phillips had 15 points and cleaned the glass for 17 rebounds, which tied the program's single-game record. Justin Smith added a dozen points in the loss.


The Owls maintained six to seven point advantage through the first 11 minutes when the Bobcats made a run. A monster dunk by Jackson was followed by a 3-point play from Bryce Waters that trimmed the Owls' lead down to 35-33 with 7:40remaining in the half.


That's when Warren Wilson really got hot.


The Owls went on a 39-10 run to finish the half, spurred by Kahlon Whitley, who went 6-of-8 from the 3-point arc and scored 22 of his 25 points in the first 20 minutes.


The second half proved to be more of the same for the Bobcats. The Owls cracked the 100-point mark with 12:30 to play, opening up a 43-point cushion that would balloon to as many as 66 before the game finally ended.


Georgia Northwestern (2-7) will head home to lick its wounds and get ready to for another tough test on Tuesday as the junior varsity squad from Tennessee Wesleyan University comes to Rossville for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
