In the non-league game with Pomeroy, the Wolfpack jumped to an 8-0 lead on baskets by Gage Holm, Ryland Kilts, Monte Pettichord and Spencer Hansen, all transition buckets.

Pomeroy fought back for a 20-10 first-quarter score, then continued rolling with 12 unanswered points to knot it at 22-22 on efforts of Trevin Kimble and Ollie Severs.

Benny Bryan scored in the third to regain DW's lead, he and Hansen combining to give DW a 37-29 lead going into the final quarter.
