Scots Make it to Finals

One more comeback. That’s all the Scots needed to take home a Division III men’s basketball championship for the first time in school history. Although Wooster’s 31 wins imply that it was a powerhouse throughout the season, the Scots were no strangers to finding themselves in a hole. Against Wittenberg University on Jan. 22, Wooster had a furious rally in the final nine minutes to erase an 11-point Tiger lead and win 65-58.

In the national semifinal against Williams College on Friday, the Scots were thoroughly dominated in the first half, entering the break down 42-28 after the Ephs hit seven three-pointers and shot over 65 percent from the field. Wooster, meanwhile, went one-for-six from beyond the arc, with the lone basket coming from a desperate heave by Bryan Wickliffe ’11 as the shot clock wound downóhis first attempt of the season.

The second half was a different story entirely. The Scots forced 10 of Williams’ 16 total turnovers, and Ian Franks ’11 scored 18 of his 24 total points in the half. The Ephs managed to go only seven-for-19 from the field, while their turnovers helped Wooster go 14-for-30. Continue reading Scots Make it to Finals
