Record Breaking Night for JWU

Winston-Salem, NC - Just 22 hours after being on the wrong end of a fifty-one point defeat at the hands of NC Central, Johnson & Wales (3-3) turned the tables on Piedmont International (0-3). The Wildcats set numerous school records in route to a 122-61 win.

Following a tight first three minutes, JWU went on a 12-2 run to take a 17-6 lead at the 14:58 mark. The Wildcats maintained a comfortable working margin for the next seven minutes.
