WARNER — After a better than two-week break from Oklahoma Collegiate Conference play due to weather, the Connors State Cowboys ripped Redlands Community College 78-54 Wednesday night.
The game was originally scheduled to be played tonight in El Reno but was moved to accommodate some infrastructure and transportation problems on the Redlands campus.
"We played hard in Arkansas Monday night (a non-conference win over Arkansas Baptist) and we won, but gave up 95 points in doing so. Tonight, I thought we guarded much better and kept the opposition below 60 points and played much better defense," said CSC coach Bill Muse.
The first half saw Connors slowly creep out to a lead that grew to eight at the half 37-29. But the Cowboys outscored the Cougars (7-4, 1-4) 41-25 in the second half to blow the game open. DeShaun St. Martin had 13 points to lead Redlands, which was held to 36 percent shooting
The Cowboys now turn thre attention to defending Region 2 Tournament Champions Murray State College Aggies on Monday March 1st inside Melvin Slef Field-House. Tip-off for Monday night is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. or 20 minutes following the Women's Game at 5:30pm
