Wesley mourns Wentworth: On Wednesday afternoon the Wesley College athletic department and the Wesley College men’s basketball program lost a legend when former head coach Jim Wentworth passed away.

A Wesley Hall of Famer, Wentworth was the Wolverines’ head men’s basketball coach for 41 years. The 1959 graduate of Pfieffer College (N.C.) compiled 502 wins and 465 losses after taking over in 1961.

In 1997-98, he guided the Wolverines to a record of 16-8, earning their first regional ranking since joining NCAA Division III in 1986. Wesley captured the ESAC title in 1987 and the ESAC Southern Division crown in 1988 under Wentworth’s guidance.

He also coached the Wolverines to a 394-225 mark during the school’s junior college era.

Wentworth served as Wesley’s athletic director and he was a tenured professor in the college’s physical education department. Due to their contributions to Wesley College, the school’s gymnasium bears the name of he and his wife Shirley.

“We are saddened to hear of the passing of Coach Wentworth,” said Wesley College AD Mike Drass. “He meant so much to so many students, staff, and faculty at Wesley. His legacy lives on through the lives that he touched.”
