The Wayne State men’s basketball team (10-7, 7-4 GLIAC) had an extra bounce in their step on Jan. 21 at Ohio Dominican University (3-14, 0-11 GLIAC), winning in dominant fashion 71-48. It was just their second win in their last eight games.
Leading the attack for the Warriors was forward Bryan Coleman—dropping a career-high 27 points in just his second career start.
WSU’s defense was stifling from the get-go. They held OD to just 16 percent shooting and 16 points in the first half. Coleman singlehandedly outscored OD by himself in the first half—scoring 19 points.
The Warriors led by as many as 26 points in the second half until a 9-2 run by the Panthers cut the lead to 17. But that’s the closest they got. WSU went on a 15-3 run of their own to seal the deal.
Center Ike Udanoh added 16 points and seven rebounds, while forward Ian Larkin chipped in with 15 points.
Wayne State next plays Jan. 26 at home against Ashland University.
