Just a little mid-season heat from the Wolves, despite a tough record so far, the Wolves continue to get back in the groove during a COVID-shortened season.
One of the bright spots among the early season woes for the Winston-Salem Wolves has been the rapid returning-to-form of forward Dionte Adams, who struggled from the free throw line in the home opener, but returned in his second game to shoot 10-12 from the line. Adams was the second leading scorer for the Wolves in Sunday’s loss with 20 points to go with 6 rebounds.
The Winston-Salem Wolves continued to struggle in transition defense again on Sunday in a loss to the Carolina Chosen Lions 109-102 in Winterville, NC. The Wolves led briefly in the first quarter behind early offensive energy but trailed by 10 at the half. The second half saw the Wolves battle back, cutting into the lead slightly by the end of the 3rd and closing the gap to a single point in the 4th, only to suffer from continued struggles getting defensive stops in transition at key moments.
Bright spots for the Wolves were improved free throw shooting and the return of Joshea Singleton into the lineup, but the 2021 Wolves continue to search for adjustments that will allow them to return to form from their 2019 ECBL Northern Conference championship run.
The Wolves return home on April 24 to face division rival Rowan County.
Joshea Singleton, 6’4″ guard for the Wolves and ECBL All-Star, was instrumental in the Wolves’ 2019 run to the title game and now has moved to play this winter in VBET-A (Albania) for BC Dviv. Singleton can play multiple positions including PG, SG and SF and electrified Wolves fans with his high flying dunks and smart play. Singleton is settling in with BC Dviv, scoring 22 for his new sqaud in his most recent outing.
Joshea’s games can be watched online, streaming on YouTube live and on demand form Vivaro News.
