The Wildcats get a shot at the buzzer to tie the contest but fall on the road in a non-conference battle on the road. The Wildcats held a 3 point lead at 38-35 at the 5:30 mark of the 4th quarter after soph. forward Josh Forburger hit a 3 pointer. The Rams tied the game at 41 two minutes later, and led by 3 with 9.1 seconds left. WJ fouled to get the ball, and after a pair of Ram misses at the line, the Wildcats could not get an open look and the final shot missed short, giving the Rams the win. The Wildcats shot 14 of 41 from the field on the night, to include 7 of 24 from behind the 3 point arc.
The Wildcats were led in scoring by junior forward Hank Roll with 13, who also pulled down 8 boards to lead that stat as well.
