Fleet Buries Bobcats

The Lees-McRae College men's basketball team once again dug themselves a hole they could not get out of, as Erskine jumped out to a 17 point lead early in the second half and managed to hold off the Bobcats rally for 66-57 win in Carolinas-Virginia Athletic Conference play Thursday. The Bobcats fall to 5-21, (4-15 CVAC).

Erskine's Jason Winecoff came off the bench to score all his 11 points after a 12-0 Lees-McRae run had cut Erskine's lead to 44-39 with 13:28 remaining. The Bobcats never got closer, as Erskine extended its lead to 60-47 with 4:44 to play and coasted to the win.

Winecoff was among four Fleet players in double figures. Brandon Wright had a game high 17 points, T.J. Taylor, and Craig Williams added 15 and 14 respectively. Aaron Dugger, (pictured bottom left), paced the Bobcats with 15 points while Henry Williams, (pictured top left), added 10.

The Bobcats will close out the regular season Saturday afternoon when they host Coker College at 4:00pm. Prior to the game, seniors Dugger, Williams and Mike Fox, (pictured bottom right), will be honored.
