Wiley Wildcats fall at No. 13 Langston

LANGSTON, Oklahoma – The Wiley College men's basketball team trailed most of the game in an 80-57 loss to National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics thirteenth-ranked Langston University Saturday in a Red River Athletics Conference game.

The Wildcats (11-8, 4-7 in RRAC) had a small lead at the beginning of the game. Langston University steadily built its lead and held a 41-26 halftime advantage.

"We got beat in every phase of the game," coach Jameus Hartsfield said. "We have to go back to the drawing board."

George Page (JR/Winnfield, LA) led the team with 12 points and eight rebounds. Andre Jackson (SO/Natchitoches, LA) recorded a team high with two assists.

The Wildcats will begin a four-game home stand with the University of Saint Thomas at Houston. Wiley lost the first meeting 52-49 on December 4.

"I'm glad we get to come home, practice and find some chemistry," Hartsfield said. "We will be ok."
