November 8th, the beginning of the season, seems like a lifetime ago. That was the day the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats took the floor at Syracuse and absorbed a 67-38 pounding
in Coaches vs. Cancer. And, realistically, it had been expected all along.
Well, the Wildcats seem to be growing up quickly. In the biggest win in school history
, they topped another Big East squad, South Florida, a school they'd never finished within 15 points of in 13 previous meetings. Leading the way was Mr. Webb, who scored 14 points in the final seven minutes of play. Will B-CC head coach Cliff Reed call up Jim Boeheim and demand a rematch? Probably not, but a win like this will give the young 'Cats plenty of confidence heading into the MEAC season.
