The women’s basketball team earned its first win of the season in a home opener against Erskine on Nov. 17 and scored 116 points, the most earned in a single game in program history. The win was head coach Jimmy Garrity’s first with the Terriers.

The team also took a win against South Carolina State on Nov. 19, with sophomore Marissa Bayer finishing the game with a layup in the final seconds of the game to give the Terriers a 66-65 win. On Nov. 22, the team continued their home game winning streak in a win over Gardner-Webb, 75-66.

After a 69-91 loss to LSU, the men’s basketball team bested Allen University 117-77 in their home opener on Nov. 15. It was the fourth-highest point total for Wofford in the Benjamin Johnson arena, which was first used in 1981. The record score is from 1983, with a 135-46 win against Warren Wilson.
