Junior Boo Wilkerson led the third quarter surge with 10 points, as the Wildcats outscored Greenville 17-10 in the third quarter to take a 44-37 lead. Wilkerson, senior Cameron Kahn and senior Day Day Hall had good fourth quarters as the Wildcats outscored the Lions, 19-15 to wrap up the 63-52 win.
