Dogs are often thought of as man’s best friend.
But during tonight’s game against West Georgia, the Wolves will be anything but friendly.
For VSU, who have just two wins since Jan. 6, the Wolves may be mistaken for vultures.
This past weekend for VSU was a difficult one. All three teams they played−University of North Alabama, Union University and University of West Florida−were all at least .500 percent or better in the conference, with Union being third in the GSC.
The upcoming weekend against UWG and Shorter University is a much lighter weekend regarding both records and rankings.
VSU (10-12, 5-11) is eighth in the conference.
Coming off of a double-digit loss to Alabama Huntsville, UWG is 7-15 overall and only 5-11 in the GSC, which puts them in ninth for the conference.
Shorter (16-6, 4-12), ranked 10th below UWG in the GSC, is coming off of seven straight losses, including a 71-59 home loss to VSU on Jan. 16.
VSU shouldn’t shrug off their opponents this week though, considering this may be the final chance to string wins together.
VSU’s next two opponents include road matches against No. 18 Delta State, who are 2nd in the GSC, and Christian Brothers, who gave VSU a 67-60 loss in the Complex on Jan. 25th.
The Gulf South Conference tournament starts March 6.
