EMORY, Va. - A week after knocking off Emory & Henry, the Wasps got revenge Saturday, beating the Colonels 69-59 in the Food Country Invitational.
Centre (3-1) will play the consolation game at 1 p.m. today against the loser of Otterbein (Ohio) and North Carolina Wesleyan.
"We lost to an inspired team. We beat them last week (72-54 on Nov. 19) and obviously, they were ready to play," Centre coach Greg Mason said. "We could just not guard them on the perimeter. Their dribble penetration really hurt us tonight.
"And they turned it over only five times. Our defensive pressure was not what we needed and we played the price."
