Poor shooting plagues Wabash in NCAC loss
Wabash shot just 29 percent from the field — including a 3-of-14 mark from 3-point range — as the Little Giants suffered their first North Coast Athletic Conference loss with a 97-56 road loss at the College of Wooster Saturday.
Plymouth grad Houston Hodges finished with five points, an assist and a steal in the loss, which drops the team to 2-5 overall and 1-1 in the NCAC.
The Little Giants take the week off for final exams before returning to action next Monday, Dec. 17 with a home contest against in-state rival Hanover.
