Greg Bloodsworth had long ago proven he was capable of putting up big numbers on the basketball court.

On Tuesday night, the Smyrna High grad proved he could be a big scorer at the college level, too.

Bloodsworth poured in a season-high 20 points with Brian Cameron adding 22 points and eight assists as Wesley College rolled to a 85-62 victory in men’s basketball at Wenworth Gym.

A 5-foot-8 sophomore guard, Bloodsworth went 7-for-7 from the floor, including 4-for-4 from three-point range, as he reached double figures for the first time for Wesley (2-3). Bloodsworth, who also played at St. Thomas More in high school, spent his freshman year at Mid-Atlantic Christian, N.C.

Cameron, who also had nine rebounds, has netted 98 points in the Wolverines’ last three games. Mychal Stefanides added 13 points.

As a team, Wesley hit 11-of-18 three-pointers. The Wolverines opened up a 38-27 halftime lead before winning their second game in a row.

Wesley never trailed after the opening minutes while going up as many as 24 late in the contest.

Virginia Tech 100, Delaware State 64: The Hornets tallied the first seven points of the game before the Hokies took control en route to the victory.

Virginia Tech (5-0) answered DSU’s 7-0 start by netting the contest’s next 11 points to take the lead for good. It was only the second meeting between the two programs and first since 1994.

John Crosby paced the Hornets (0-5) with 19 points, including three three-pointers. Ameer Bennett (13) and Omari Peek-Green (10) also scored in double figures.

Nahiem Alleyne scored a game-high 20 points for Virginia Tech, which had seven players score eight points or more. Three Hokies sank five threes as they finished 21-of-37 from beyond the arc.
