Warner, OK- Moving up four spots to the number 15 spot in the NJCAA Division I rankings this week, the Connors State Cowboys had little trouble in notching win number 11 against no losses as they beat Central Baptist (Ark) College 120-74 Monday night at the Melvin Self Fieldhouse.
The Cowboys (11-0) beat the Mustangs early on in transition and opened up a double-digit lead halfway through the first half but that margin remained at 12-14 until the second half started when they turned on the jets to run away from Central Baptist. Eastern State transfer Tamaury Releford had a monster game with 34 points while dominating the paint with blocks and rebounds.
"Tamaury had a great game. It's just a shame that we didn't have him in the program last year," said Connors coach Bill Muse. He's improved so much and continues to do so with his long reach and athleticism."
The Cowboys go to Arkansas Tech on Tuesday before returning home to take on National Park (Ark.) on Thursday.
