On Saturday, February 5, 2011 the Wildcats of Johnson & Wales University completed their home game schedule for the 2010-2011 season.
Johnson & Wales would square off against Lees-McRae College as they looked to avenge an earlier season loss that they suffered to the Bobcats.
Lees-McRae would start the contest off with quick offensive production, primarily strong inside play from forwards Juan Urbina, and Daril Scott Jr.
The Wildcats would fall behind early in the first half, but would later settle down throughout the first half of play, courtesy of solid and consistent defense and strong offensive play from freshman forward Nicholas TenEyck.
Lees-McRae would hold off multiple JWU runs in the late minutes of the opening half behind their aggressive pressure defense. The Bobcats would enter half-time with a sizable 16 point lead.
Johnson & Wales University would begin the second half with an up-tempo offensive scheme and solid defensive play. The Wildcats would catch Lees-McRae off balance during the second half with their intensity on both ends of the floor.
Although Johnson & Wales would enter the second half with an aggressive mindset, foul trouble would plague the Wildcats. Lees-McRae would capitalize on the faults of the Wildcats as they successfully converted a high percentage of their free throw opportunities.
JWU would sporadically produce runs throughout the second half, but unsuccessfully cut into the deficit. Lees-McRae would eventually pull away from the Wildcats and record the victory.
The Wildcats will finish out the remainder of their 2010-2011 season on the road; Johnson & Wales University will have a week in between their next game when they take on the nearby Sabers of Barber Scotia College.
