Wilson trailed during the first half of play. The Bulldog’s Travaun Coad scored his career 1000th point on a field goal early in the first quarter. The Reading Red Knights held a 14-10 lead over Wilson after one and pushed to a 7 point lead in the second quarter. However, a late rally lead by Coad and Jaylin Calloway brought Wilson within 1 point of Reading’s lead at half.

Wilson needed a strong third quarter to surpass the Red Knight lead. Calloway cashed in for a three-pointer early in the quarter, a defining swing of momentum for the Bulldogs. After three, Wilson took Reading with a 29-25 lead.

Reading did not falter, however. The Red Knight’s Lonnie Walker buried a late three pointer in the fourth quarter, bringing the Red Knights to within 2 points of the Bulldogs. Coad’s missed foul attempt and a Red Knight rebound allowed for a late Reading scoring opportunity. Reading’s forced shot fell short and a Wilson rebound secured a Bulldog win. Wilson bested Reading tonight, 49-46. Coad and Calloway led for the Bulldogs with a combined 30 points.

Wilson's student section anticipates Travaun Coad's 1000 point milestone.
