Wildcats Buried Under Avalanche of CIU 3-Pointers

Wildcats Buried Under Avalanche of CIU 3-Pointers

Columbia, SC - Johnson & Wales (1-2) took to the road for the first time this season as they faced off with Columbia International (2-0) for the first time ever. Columbia International was red hot all night, shooting over 56% from the field, including 13 three pointers to post a 97-76 win.

The Wildcats started quickly, jumping out to a 9-2 lead in the game's first four minutes. The Rams chipped away at the lead, and tied the game on a Joe Isenhour free throw with nine and a half minutes left in the period. CIU continued their surge for the rest of the half. They went up by thirteen, 50-37 on a pair of Zack Durkee free throws with just under one minute left, and eventually took a 51-41 lead into the break.

Nick Crawford scored the first six points of the second half for JWU to pull them within six at 53-47. Unfortunately, that would be as close as the Wildcats would get. From that point, CIU never led by less than ten, and shot 7 of 8 from three point land to pull away and win by twenty one, 97-76.

Crawford led the Wildcats in scoring and reboudning with 26 and 8, respectively. Hursel Forbes and Joshua Cohen added 17 points each, while DeQuincey Bennett chipped in with 10.

The Wildcats return home on Friday as they host Christendom at 7:30pm.
