Grant Ferguson was the only Pioneer to score in double figures with 10 points.
"I told Coach Osborne this is one of the better teams he's ever had,'' said Wayne coach Sam Cochenour. "He's got everything - youth and a lot of other stuff. Their outside shooting was unbelievable. I've seen them play and I knew how good they were.
"I told our guys the early part of our schedule was soft, and now we were going to hit the hard part with Poca, Mingo Central and Chapmanville. Our guys came out a little bit overconfident, and we came out tired. But this is what I expected from Poca.''
Wayne's point total marked a season low and was just the second time the Pioneers had been held below 53 points.
"I'm disappointed we didn't keep it closer,'' Cochenour said. "I looked up and it was 10-8 and the next thing, it was 18-8. We used our timeouts early to try and stop their runs. But they came off their screens and the timing was perfect, the spacing was perfect. This is a good team.''
Despite all the inactivity as far as games, Poca has managed to keep a fairly even practice schedule, according to Osborne.
"Our Board of Education has been very helpful,'' Osborne said. "They've allowed us to practice in places that have [non-contaminated] water, and the board has provided transportation for us. We're very fortunate that Hurricane High School has water, and they allowed us to practice Saturday and [Monday].
"We've only missed one day of practice. The big issue now is making up games.''
The Dots have had three games called off because of weather.
