Kentucky Wesleyan almost never seems to be down in men’s hoops. This year? The No. 13 Panthers are coming off an 83-63 victory at home on Saturday over No. 8 Lindsey Wilson. Six players scored in double figures for KWC — one with 14 points, three with 12 and two with 11. Granted, when these guys play in the Sportscenter it’s almost a guaranteed win. But Lindsey Wilson came in undefeated — and Wesleyan came out and scored 49 points (while holding LW to 29) in the first half. Plus, KWC shot 69.6 percent in the opening 20 minutes (16-for-23). One other thing: together, both teams shot 55 free throws. KWC was 25-for-31 (80.6 percent).
