In Exhibition at Pavilion, Wildcats Breeze Past Holy Family, 82-44

by Craig Dimitri

On Tuesday, November 6 - Election Day - there was no recount needed at the Pavilion. The Wildcats had no trouble in crushing an overmatched Holy Family squad in an exhibition game, 82-44, nearly doubling up the visitors' point total. Holy Family gallantly battled during the first half, trailing just 39-29 at halftime, but the Wildcats embarked on a 27-3 run to open the second half, during which the Tigers missed 19 of their 21 shots and ultimately shot just 23% for the contest. The Wildcats merely cruised afterwards.

Fifth-year senior Curtis Sumpter, playing for the first time since suffering his knee injury, was awesome, scoring 20 points and pulling down nine rebounds. But even better was sophomore Dwayne Anderson, who shot 4-5 from three-point range, ultimately scoring 14 points in just 12 minutes of action. Senior Will Sheridan added 10 points and seven rebounds, while all 13 Wildcats who saw action managed to score.

The Wildcats will officially open the season on Saturday, November 10, when they travel to Northwood.
