Cowboys Sweep Home-stand to Begin Year

Warner- For the third consecutive night, the Connors State Cowboys had little trouble with an opponent as they rolled Wednesday night at Melvin Self Field-House.

"We set up the schedule like this because when you get to the playoffs, you'll have to play on three straight days and these were the opponents we could find at this time of the year", said Cowboys head coach Bill Muse.

Connors (3-0) was up 17-0 before the Evanguals got theior first points five minutes into the game and lead at halftime 55-18. Six Cowboys scored in double figures with Tulsa freshman Marquel Sutton leading the way with 18 points while another Tulsa product, Mason Alexander had 17, Boston freshman Jhamyl Fricas scored 12, Jordan Tillmon and Xavier Glenn had 11 each and Sammy Mike netted 10 points.

"I think we improved some each night and I feel we have more depth this year then we've had in awhile," said Muse, who notched victory number 688 at Connors and moved into the number eight spot among wins for active junior college coaches.

The Cowboys will be on the road saturday at Paris (Texas) Junior College and next Tuesday at Independence (Kansas) Community College.

"Thosea re both nationally recognized programs around the country and both have won national championships, so we'll get a better feel for where we are after these games," said Muse.
