Will Sheehey got off to a strong start in Wednesday night’s win against North Carolina Central, scoring eight of his 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting. The sophomore showed a litte more bounce in his step since coming back from his ankle injury, rising high on his mid-range jumpers and slashing to the basket from the corners.
