TISHOMINGO –Connors State rolled to its fourth consecutive victory with a 90-48 win over North Texas Club team in the Murray State Classic Saturday.
Cowgirls will now take a 7-1 record into a Monday clash with Bacone College at the Muskogee Civic Center. Tip-off is 5 p.m. The Cowboys will follow at 7 p.m. against Mid-American Christian Junior Varsity.
The Cowgirls led from the opening buzzer cruising to a 24-12 lead after the first quarter and stretched its lead to 30-18 at the half.
Coach Jamie Fisher then cleared his bench the final two quarters of play as the starters did not play in the second half.
"This was a feel good game for us," said Fisher. "Everyone had an opportunity to play.
"We came out with a lot of energy. It was a game where we knew we were going win. It was a game that we wanted to concentrate on getting better and we did.
"We got a lot of good scoring out of our guards, which was a major plus. We hit a lot of threes today (10)," said Fisher.
