SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Kevin Giltner and Noah Dahlman each scored 18 points as Wofford defeated High Point 79-65 Saturday, snapping the Panthers' three-game winning streak.
The Terriers shot with deadly efficiency, making 27 of 41 attempts from the field (65.9 percent), including 7 of 10 from 3-point territory. The only way High Point could cool off the Terriers was to send them to the free-throw line, where Wofford made only 18 of 28 attempts (64.3 percent).
The game was decided at the outset, when Wofford (5-6) scored the first 16 points while the Panthers (5-4) missed their first seven shots and committed nine turnovers during that stretch.
Brad Loesing had eight assists for Wofford, one more than the High Point team.
Nick Barbour led High Point with 18 points and Shay Shine added 17 for the Panthers, who trailed 43-16 at halftime. They cut the deficit to 11 late in the game.
