Cowboys Grab 10 Point Road Win at NEO

Cowboys Grab 10 Point Road Win at NEO

Warner- Gavin Harris had a team-high 17 points as Connors State won a road game at Northeastern A&M on Saturday, 75-65. 

Harris had 12 in the first half as Connors (11-2, 7-2 OCAC) and went up 30-20 and was one of five in double figures.

Joining Harris was Jarquavious Cain with 16, Jordan Tillmon with 15, Sammy Mike with 14, 12 coming in the second half, and Jahcoree Ealy with 13. Connors led start to finish.

Coach Bill Muse was most pleased with a solid defensive effort coming off the second two-point loss in five games Thursday against Seminole.

"Most of it is about attitude and effort. We challenged ourselves and only gave up 20 points in the first half. Those two tough home losses mean we need to pick up a couple of good road wins and get some momentum back in our favor."

He also was pleased with Mike's breakout half.

"He hasn't been playing with a lot of confidence partly because he's coming off the bench and I've used him sporadically, but I left him out there in the second against another 6-10, 6-11 kid and he really got going," he said of the 6-9 forward.
