Nov. 20—The Kentucky Wesleyan College men’s basketball team will look for its second straight victory when the Panthers host East-West University Saturday afternoon.
Tipoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at the Sportscenter.
The Panthers (2-1) enter following Tuesday’s 72-48 victory over Midway on Tuesday, and they’re looking to continue that momentum against a relatively unknown opponent.
KWC coach Drew Cooper likened East-West to Midway, which actually led the Panthers 34-33 at halftime before Wesleyan pulled away in the second half.
“They’re similar in terms of athleticism and explosiveness,” Cooper said. “If we don’t guard, then it will be a long afternoon.”
One area where the Panthers got a big lift in their home opener, Cooper added, wasn’t on the floor at all.
Prior to Tuesday’s game, the Kentucky Wesleyan administration set up a new student section — in the Sportscenter’s lower seating area, opposite the opponents’ bench. Cooper hopes
