ON THE COURT: A red-hot Virginia Wesleyan Marlin squad jumped out to a 12-0 lead early in the contest and scored a 103-68 win over The Apprentice School on Tuesday night at the Batten Center on the VWC campus.
The Marlins used consecutive 3-pointers from Cameron Owens to take the 12-0 lead barely three minutes into the game. Apprentice School responded with a 10-2 run over a 2:32 span to trim the margin to 14-10 after a pair of Jamal Curry jumpers.
That was as close as the Builders got all night as the Marlins blistered the nets hitting 17 3-pointers in the contest. DJ Woodmore and Sedric Nady, who had five 3-pointers apiece, were the leading scorers for the Marlins with 30 and 20 points respectively.
Curry was the leading scorer for the Builders with his third straight double-double scoring 22 points and hauling in a game-high 11 rebounds.
BEHIND THE BOXSCORE
- Latrone Demiel added 13 points as the only other double figure scorer for the Builders.
- Curry had a season-high of five blocked shots as the Builders swatted seven shots on the night.
The men return to the home floor on Sunday, Dec. 1 when they host St. Joseph's College-Brooklyn in a 2pm game. This will be a doubleheader as the Lady Builders also face St. Joseph's College-Brooklyn at noon.
