Swannanoa, N.C. - "This may have been an all-time low for me as a coach at Warren Wilson. Take nothing away from PIU, but our performance in our home opener, was the complete opposite of what we expected. We are too cool and finesse. It will change from this day forward. We have to get back to the basics of Warren Wilson Basketball and everyone will fall in line. We shot the ball poorly, we didn't offensive rebound, we got beat up and down the floor in transition. We got beat in every facet by our own style of play. That is not acceptable," stated head coach Anthony Barringer.
The Owls dropped their home opener to Piedmont International University 86-73. The Owls, known for taking and making lots of three point shots, shot the ball 15.6%. The Owls were outrebounded and consistently gave up two to three offensive rebounds each possession in crunch situations throughout the game.
Jordan Gant led the Owls in scoring, finishing with 16 points. He also pulled down 6 rebounds.
