#25 Generals 10-2 after weekend split!
The #25 SC Generals finished the first part of the season at 10-2 after a weekend split.
On Friday, the Generals traveled to Casper, Wyoming to take on rival Casper College. The action was intense and the game was back & forth as Casper held on to a 16-point lead midway through the first half and a 12-point lead at halftime, before the Generals come roaring back to take a 9-point lead with 5 minutes left in the game. Unfortunately for the Generals, Casper fought back to take the lead with just under 1-minute remaining and held on for the 73-69 victory. Antoine Proctor led the Generals with a career-high 26 points and had 7 rebounds, JR Cadot added 16 points and 7 rebounds, and Charlton Wilson added 11. It was only the 2nd loss of the season for the Generals.
On Saturday night, the Generals bounced back at home vs. the Gillette College Pronghorns in the 1st-ever game in the rival series "The Sneaker Slam". The Generals would take a 44-38 lead into halftime, only to see Gillette battle back early in the 2nd half and make it a game. Down the stretch, both teams made huge plays, but Sheridan prevailed when Jarrell Crayton finished a missed lay-up with time running low to give the Generals the 4-point cushion that would be the final score, at 87-83. Five players scored in double-figures, led by Idris Lasisi with a career-high 19 points, Antoine Proctor with 15, JR Cadot with 14 & a team-high 9 rebounds, Kendrick Morse with 13, and Jarrell Crayon with 11.
The Generals are now off until a January 8th Wyo Conference game at home vs. Central Wyoming College.
