When the Wilson football team reached the state semifinals, it was not without a ripple effect.  One ripple was that the basketball team was missing some its players for the first few weeks of the season.

But the Bulldogs have thrived anyway.

Wilson went 5-2 to start this year. Wednesay night, they looked to continue their winning ways in a non-league matchup with Boyertown (3-6).

Behind a game-high 11 points from Travaun Coad, the Bulldogs handled the Bears 54-40.

Matt Timochenko added ten points for Wilson.

Mike Mansur scored nine points to pace Boyertown.
