Wilmington Men’s Basketball back home after a month on the road; hosts Capital Wednesday night

Wilmington College Athletics


For the first time in more than a month, the Wilmington College men’s basketball team will be able to compete in front of the home fans as they host Capital 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Ohio Athletic Conference action at Fred Raizk Arena in Hermann Court.

Despite coming into the game with a losing record, the Capital is a very skilled opponent.

“They have played an extremely tough schedule against some of the better teams in the country,” said Wilmington head coach K.C. Hunt. “I am not concerned with their record. What I am watching on tape is a really good basketball team. They are big, strong and run their stuff. They’re younger than they have been, but they are a talented basketball team. We are going to have to play well to win.”

The Crusaders (4-6 overall, 1-2 OAC) are coming off a 76-58 victory over Piedmont, which snapped a four-game losing streak. Freshman guard Tyrel Jackson led the team with 14 points as all five starters reached double figures.

Sophomore guard AJ Dixon is leading the team in scoring with 14.6 points per game, while shooting 41.5 percent from the first. More than half of his shots have been from beyong the arc, and he is leding the team with 60 free throw attempts. Dixon is shooting 78.3 percent (47-of-60) from the charity stripe. He is also second on the team with 27 assists.

Junior forward Andrew Bolka leads the team and is tied for third in the Ohio Athletic Conference with 6.8 rebounds per game. His 10.8 points is good for second on the team. He is also the only Capital player to start in all 10 games as eight different players has earned a start this season. Junior Michael Green adds 10.3 points per contest.

The Fightin’ Quakers believe that have a handle on what CU wants to do.

“They have played a lot of zone this year,” said Hunt. “We are going to have to be prepared for multiple defenses. It’s going to be about us recognizing defenses and being in attack mode. On defense, we are going have to do a good job, containing (Bolka) and defending the high-low.”

Rushton also scored 25 points in ONU’s 73-68 loss to Trine (Ind.) on Saturday.

He currently leads the OAC in scoring (19.5 ppg) and in three point shooting percentage (.583).

Razorbacks Women’s Basketball (13-1) team fresh off first loss of season heads to Missouri on Sunday afternoon

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Looking to bounce back from its first loss of the season and earn a key win on the road in the SEC, the University of Arkansas women’s basketball team (13-1, 0-1 SEC) travels to face Missouri (12-2, 1-0 SEC) in Columbia, Mo., on Sunday.

The Razorbacks opened SEC play Thursday at home against a tough opponent in No. 12/13 South Carolina. Despite trailing by as much as 16 points in the second half, Arkansas battled back, but was ultimately defeated in a 55-51 loss.

Missouri enters Sunday’s matchup against Arkansas having won its SEC opener, 86-76, on the road over Ole Miss. Four Tigers scored in double figures in the win, led by Bri Kulas with 26 points and eight rebounds.

Kulas leads Missouri with 17.8 points per game and is also second on the team with 5.9 rebounds a contest so far this season. The 6-1 senior forward was named to the 2013 All-SEC Second Team last season, starting in each of the team’s 32 games and averaging a team-leading 13.8 points per game.

The Tigers are known for their outside game and willingness to take the three-point shot, averaging 10.6 three-pointers per game. Missouri is converting 40 percent of its three-point attempts this season, led by Morgan Eye and her 45.6 percent shooting. Eye is one of the NCAA’s best three-point shooters, second in the SEC only to Arkansas’ McKenzie Adams (49.2 percent).

“They’re an outstanding basketball team and they do a great job,” head coach Tom Collen said of the Tigers. “They have some ups and downs, but on a night when they’re up and making their three-point shots they can compete with anybody in the country.”

On the other side, Arkansas ranks No. 14 in the NCAA in three-point percentage defense, holding opponents to 25.4 percent from distance so far this season. The Razorbacks also continue to lead the nation in scoring defense for a fifth straight week, allowing opponents just 45.4 points per game through 14 games this season.

Leading scorer Jessica Jackson looks to bounce back offensively for Arkansas, after going just 4-for-18 (3-for-9 3PT) from the floor Thursday in the team’s loss to South Carolina. Jackson remains the highest-ranking freshman scorer in the SEC at 14.8 points per game and has reached double digits in 13 of 14 games this season.

The Razorbacks as a whole look to right the ship offensively after the team shot a season-low 26.1 percent in the loss to the Gamecocks. Arkansas has shot better than 40 percent in 11 games so far this season, which keeps them on pace and in position to surpass the team doing so 13 times in 32 games last season.

Coach Collen is 1-5 all-time following a loss in the SEC opener. The Razorbacks bounced back and upset No. 10 Kentucky in Fayetteville, 78-67, during the 2010-11 season after dropping their conference opener on the road to Florida.

Arkansas holds a 7-4 all-time series record over Missouri, including a 3-3 record in Columbia, Mo. The Razorbacks swept the Tigers last season, earning a 58-50 win on the road and a 61-40 victory at home.

“They’ve done a pretty good job of promoting and their crowds are starting to get bigger,” Coach Collen said of Mizzou Arena. “We had a great game up there with them last year and found a way to pull it out in the end. We’ve got some experience with them and it’s a rivalry game, as we’ll be playing them twice a year from now on.”

Arkansas and Missouri are scheduled to tip off at 2 p.m. inside Mizzou Arena in Columbia, Mo.

The game will air in Northwest Arkansas on KOSM-FM 92.1; in Rogers on KURM-AM 790; in Fort Smith on KFPW-FM 94.5 and 1230 AM; and in Little Rock on KREB-FM 103.7.
