Swannanoa, N.C. - Men's basketball returned home to face off against USCAA opponents Campbellsville-Harrodsburg University.
The Owls would jump out and take an early lead. The Owls would go up by as much as 16 points near the end of the first half. The Tigers used a 10-2 run to cut the Owls lead to 8 before intermission.
The Tigers controlled the last 10 minutes of the second half and used a run with 5 minutes remaining in the game to take their first lead. The Owls would tie the game up with 3 minutes to go, but it was the closest that the Owls would come. As the horn sounded, the final score favored the Tigers, 92-89.
"I am speechless honestly. Take nothing away from Campbellsville-Harrodsburg, but everything that we could have done wrong today, we did wrong. We had no energy, no fight, no grit, no toughness. You can't expect to win just because you lace your shoes up and put your jersey on and it says Warren Warren across the chest. Tradition doesn't win games, individual talent doesn't win games, good teams win games. Right now we don't play like a good team. We aren't playing to our ability," stated head coach Anthony Barringer.
Jaquann Lockhart led the Owls with 24 points.
The Owls are back in action on Saturday as they host EMAC rival Johnson and Wales University. Tip off is scheduled at 4:00 P.M.
