“It was nice to see multiple guys in double figures. We amped up the pressure in the second quarter.”

Danny Hanssen led Wilmington (13-7) with 21 points and Jacob Yohman was next with 18 markers, nine rebounds and four blocks. Tage Kelliher notched 14 tallies and eight boards, while Shane Cox collected 10 points.
