Warren Wilson's Three-Point Barrage too Much for Wildcats

Warren Wilson's Three-Point Barrage too Much for Wildcats

Swannanoa, NC - Warren Wilson College connected on 14 three-pointers as the USCAA #16 Owls defeated the #11 Johnson & Wales women's basketball team 93-75 on Thursday.

Junior Vanderia Shackleford scored a season high 30 points along with 10 rebounds for the Wildcats (10-6), who saw their five-game winning streak snapped.

She was outdueled by Owls counterpart Jada McCrimmon, who torched Johnson & Wales for 40 points on the night.  McCrimmon, who averages 13 points per contest, connected on 14-of-24 from the field, including 7-of-11 from beyond the arc.

McCrimmon helped offset a relatively quiet night from teammate Danasia Dumas, the second leading scorer in the nation.  Dumas finished with just eight points.

The Wildcats bench outscored Warren Wilson's reserves 26-3 on the night and easily won the battles in rebounds (44-33) and second chance points (19-6).  However, the inability to find an answer for Warren Wilson's long range shooting proved costly.

Johnson & Wales will resume play on Tuesday when they host Piedmont International University.  Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Wildcat Center.
