Junior Omar Prewitt led W&M with a season-high 28 points on 12-of-18 shooting, while classmate Daniel Dixon added 20 points, five rebounds and three assists. Senior Sean Sheldon was a perfect 5-of-5 from the floor, finishing with 11 points, four rebounds and two assists. Fellow senior Terry Tarpey posted a game-high 11 rebounds to go with six assists, three blocked shots and two steals.

The Green and Gold returns home for the annual #WMGoldRush Game and a nationally-televised contest on Saturday afternoon. The Tribe hosts Delaware at 2:30 p.m. in a game that will be televised on the NBC Sports Network. W&M also celebrates its Charter Day with the #WMGoldRush Game.
