The Coyotes roared back and held McPherson to four points in the last 11 minutes to win 65-55. KWU followed that up with another come-from-behind victory against the Oklahoma Wesleyan Eagles. For the third straight game, the Coyotes held their opponent to below 60 points, earning a 66-59 win in the process to go to 7-3 in the KCAC. Head men’s basketball coach Anthony Monson and assistant Charlie Wallrapp recapped the week’s action and much more.
Head women’s basketball coach Ryan Showman became just the second coach in Kansas Wesleyan women’s basketball history to reach the 100-win plateau on Wednesday.

The Coyotes nearly went 2-0 in the week, but fell to Oklahoma Wesleyan 67-59 on Saturday. The Eagles made all of their 14 free throws in the fourth in ice the game, putting KWU at 6-4 in the conference. Coach Showman talked about his 100th win and summarized the week’s action.
