BARTLESVILLE---Connors State cruised to their fifth consecutive victory with a 99-70 win over Oklahoma Wesleyan Junior Varsity Monday night on the Eagles home floor.

Cowboys (5-0) return home to play Central Baptist College JV from Conway Arkansas at 7 p.m. The Cowgirls will play at 5:30 p.m. at Neosho County in Mo.

Despite the win Cowboys Coach Bill Muse was not please with the effort of his club.

"This wasn't our best performance of the five games we have played," said Muse. "The effort just wasn't there. We gave them too many threes (15). If those threes were twos it would have been a different story.

"And, our defense wasn't good and that was because of our intensity," said Muse.

Cowboys once again had five players score in double figures with Jarqavous Cain leading the assault with 22 points.

Jahcoree Ealy poured in 18, followed by Caleb Riggs and Gabe Hornsby with 15 each.  Callen Haydon added 13 points.

Cowboys held a comfortable 44-26 lead at the half despite a sluggish and somewhat sloppy offensive display.

Connors' largest lead of the game was 30 points 97-67 in the final 50 seconds of the game.

Cain led the first half scoring for Connors with 12 points

With six points coming from the free throw line where he was perfect at the stripe. Cowboys were 20-of-29 at the stripe for the game.

Cowboys' largest lead of the half was 24 points 41-17 with 3:18 remaining in the half.
