The Wildcats came out swinging, hitting 5 from 3 point range in the first quarter and building an early 9 point (20-11) lead. The Patriots struck back, and took the lead after a 13-2 run in the second quarter, building a 4 point lead at the half (30-34).
The Wildcats, who hit 14 of 30 from long range on the night, stayed within striking distance of the Pats, trailing by only 5 at 46-51 late in the third quarter. The Wildcats would not get closer the rest of the way, as fouls to gain possession widened the final scoring gap. The Wildcats were led in scoring by junior guard Jonathon Newman with 16 points, followed closely by junior power forward Hank Roll with 15. As mentioned, the Wildcats nailed 14 of 30 from 3 point range (46.6%), and only took 17 2 pointers, hitting 6(35.3%). The Wildcats will hit the road to take on the Rockville Rams on Tuesday, 2/13/18 with tipoff scheduled for the early time of 5:30.
