The Wolverines took a whopping 40 attempts from the free throw line and canned 25.

Dumpprope and Redfield had double-double nights for the Wolverines pulling down 11 and 10 boards respectively.

"This was a great first win for our team," WDC head coach Jason Mielke said. "This is the kind of balanced attack we need to compete night in and night out."

Mielke also liked the floor game his team played.

"We limited our turnovers throughout the game and were much more aggressive about going to the basket," Mielke said.

Preston Riewer led the Bears with 30 points.

The Bears were strong at the free throw line going 18 of 22 but Dale Finck's team was also whistled for 29 fouls.
