Warren-Wilson College 83
Welch College 50
January 17, 2014. Still lacking numbers due to injury and academic issues, the Flames couldn’t handle the quicker visitors from Warren-Wilson College and dropped an 83-50 decision to the visiting Owls.
The Flames were in it early, but went cold for six minutes and the Owls went on an 11-0 run to take a 31-9 lead. It didn’t improve much from there as Welch could only muster six more points the rest of the first half and trailed 48-15 at the break.
However, the second half was a different story as the Flames were able to mount and offensive attack and play even with the Owls, but were unable to make up the huge first half deficit.
“Playing short-handed is hard,” said Flames’ coach Nathan Willhite. “But, I was really proud of the way we played in the second half and never quit.”
Leading the way for WC was Lim Chol with 17 points. Tim Hutchinson chipped in 11 points and David Reeves added 10.
