Wilford came off the bench to score a season-high 15 points for SEMO in their 81-73 loss to Murray State Thursday. Several of Wilford's family members made the trip to Murray to see him play, and he didn't disappoint.
Wilford came off the bench and drilled consecutive 3-pointers to extend SEMO's lead from 15-14 to 21-14 in the first half. However, Wilford was also assigned with the task of defending Murray State guard Isaiah Canaan late in the first half when the Racer guard caught fire.
After two seasons at Conners State Junior College, Wilford is averaging 20 minutes a game over their last four. While he is averaging 5.3 ppg. on the season, he has boosted that to 8 ppg. over the last four.
Wilford and SEMO get a return shot at Murray State on their home court on February 15.
