The UWG men’s basketball team continued to dominate their opponents at home on Tuesday. The Wolves came away with an 89-85 victory over Shorter in the Coliseum. UWG freshman phenom Deonta Stocks is the leading scorer in the Gulf South Conference. Stocks, along with senior leaders Lavon Gray and Ryan Godfrey, hopes to lead the Wolves to win their final regular season matchup against Lee University. The Flames should be no match for UWG.
