First of March, and the madness has arrived. From the Warren Wilson College website:
Raysean Love scored 23 points and Anthony Barringer added a double-double as ninth-seeded Warren Wilson defeated top-seeded New Hampshire Institute of Technology 79-74 Thursday night.
NHTI jumped out to a 13-7 lead nine minutes into the game until Tyler Triplett responded with a breakaway dunk for the Owls to trim the lead to four. The game stayed tightly contested with Warren Wilson getting its first lead after a Love three-point field goal with five minutes to play in the half. Love scored four more points before the half ended helping the Owls to a 24-21 halftime lead.
Warren Wilson plays in the semifinals against fourth-seeded Penn State Beaver tomorrow at 5:00 p.m.
