Cowboys Closes First Semester with Win

Warner- With seven players in double figures, the Connors State Cowboys easily defeated Arkansas Tech University 126-77 on Wedsnday night, breaking a 27-year old single season scoring record in the process as the first semester of the schedule ended for the Cowboys.

Connors (14-2, 0-2) was lead by sophomore guard Jahcoree Ealy with 26 Points. Also having a good night coming off the bench, Boston freshman Jhamyl Fricas scored 25 and grabbed 15 rebounds for the Cowboys.

In addition former Muskogee Rougher Xavier Brown came off the bench to total 19 points including five 3-pointers. Jordan Tillmon had 16 points, Xavier Glenn from Bixby had 15. D.J. Basey, a transfer from UCO, put in 11 and Mason Alexander from Tulsa Edison with 10 rounded out the double digit scorers for Connors. 

"I think we had a good first semster," said Connors coach Bill Muse. " We're 14-2 but the two loses sting because they were both conference games. We beat several good schools on the road, so the potential is there, we just have to work on some finer points over the break. We also need to get well and get (Marquel) Sutton back (Knee injury) because he is a very big part of what we do."

The Cowboys will return from the Break on January 6th to take on Redlands Community College as Cowboy Head Coach Bill Muse will go for career win number 700  inside Melvin Self Field-House. Tip-Off is scheduled for 7:30p.m.
