  • Holmes leading Newberry in scoring

    Another big game from Xavier Holmes wasn't quite enough to help the Newberry Wolves basketball team hold onto a big lead against Carson-Newman on Sunday.

  • Squirewell receives another honor

    The season ended for the Newberry College Wolves football team more than a month ago, but the honors are still rolling in for Alstevis "Stevo" Squirewell.

  • Holmes coming up big for Wolves

    His string of double-doubles has come to an end, but Xavier Holmes is now a part of NCAA history.
    Holmes, a Great Falls graduate who is now in his senior year at Newberry College, came into his team's game last week against Lenoir-Rhyne with a string of four consecutive double-doubles. He didn't keep that streak intact but still had big game, contributing 23 points, six rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal as Newberry won 133-122 in overtime. In that game, the Wolves set an NCAA Division II record for most points in an overtime period with 28.

  • That fighting Clemson Tiger Football Team

    "How about that fighting Clemson Tiger Football Team?"
    That's technically a question, but my dad never presented it to me as such or expected an answer. It was rhetorical, there was a short pause between "tiger" and "football" and it was delivered in an unemotional monotone right after any Clemson loss. After they lost their opener to Virginia Tech in 1986, after they didn't show up against Georgia Tech in 1989, after they suffered letdowns and head-scratchers in the '90s and 2000s…

  • Another double-double for Holmes

    Xavier Holmes has now tripled up on double-doubles.
    Holmes, a Great Falls High School graduate now playing his senior season for the Newberry College men's basketball team, scored a game-high 33 points and snared 10 rebounds Wednesday as the Wolves took down Mars Hill 99-93.
    Newberry trailed 7-2 in the early-going but took the lead when Holmes hit back-to-back layups and a free throw to put it at 13-9 Newberry. Holmes then hit a fast break layup to go up 15-9 after Brandon McCarter turned the ball over.

  • Squirewell selected to all-conference team

    He's played his last college game, but given how he excelled on the field he may not have played his last football game.
    Great Falls graduate Alstevis "Stevo" Squirewell, a redshirt senior for the Newberry College Wolves football team, was selected to the All South Atlantic Conference first team. It's the second straight All-SAC honor for Squirewell.

  • Squirewell named SAC defensive player of the week

    Newberry College defensive lineman Alstevis "Stevo" Squirewell didn't return an interception for a touchdown Saturday with one hand tied behind his back, but he did have one hand tied up.
    In part because of that play, Squirewell has been named the South Atlantic Conference AstroTurf Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday.

  • Squirewell named pre-season all-conference

    He ended the 2014 season on the all-conference list and he's hasn't gone anywhere since that time.
    Great Falls High School graduate Alstevis "Stevo" Squirewell was one of 10 members of the Newberry College football team selected for the Pre-Season All-South Atlantic Conference squad.

  • Morris a pre-season all-conference pick
