After earning the right to host the Region IX tournament on the 23rd the Sheridan College men’s basketball team had one last challenge facing them. It was to close out the regular season on the road at Western Wyoming at a very hostile environment. It was sophomore night and Labor Union Worker appreciation day at WWCC but the Generals took care of business and came home with a 94-83 victory. Sheridan jumped out to an early 13 point lead which was reduced to 6 at halftime but they quickly jumped out of the gates in the second half to push the lead back to double digits and coasted home from there. JR Cadot led the Generals with 20 points, Jarrell Crayton added 14, Sam Iwueke came off the bench to chip in 13 points, Idris Lasisi added 12 and Steven Ivory Jr. had 10 points. SC shot 60% from the field for the game and was +6 on the boards.

In one of the most exciting 14-point games on record, Sheridan (23-6, 7-1) grabbed a share of first place in Region 9’s North Sub-Region with a 104-90 victory at home against Northwest (Wyo.) College (22-6, 7-1). The excitement was generated by the sub-region tie-breaker system which forced the Generals to not only win the game, but by a margin of at least 14 points to earn the right to host the Region 9 Tournament. The task seemed imminently possible when Sheridan charged out to a 56-37 advantage at halftime, hitting 60% of its shots from the field (24/40). The Generals continued to hold a lead near the 20-point mark until Northwest began to drill a series of three-pointers, gradually reducing the deficit until pulling within 12 at 99-87 inside the two-minute mark. Suddenly, the game went from a double-digit lark to an intense nail-biting situation. When Northwest converted the second of two free throws with 15.7 seconds left, Sheridan was still up 102-90 but needed to score a bucket to host the tournament. With two seconds remaining, Jarrell Crayton was fouled and went to the line for a one-and-one, where he missed the opening toss. However, the ball bounced out to the center of the lane over the outreached hands of the two Trapper interior men and was tipped by a high-leaping J.R. Cadot. The ball bounced once and fell in at the buzzer. The put-back gave the 6-5 sophomore a career-high 32 points which he produced, by hitting 13 of 17 shots from the field, including all three of his trey attempts. Cadot also added 13 rebounds, seven on the offensive end, five assists with only one turnover, and one blocked shot. The outstanding performance under pressure circumstances was even more remarkable considering he had been notified just before game time that his father had passed away back home in the Bahamas. Omar McDade chipped in with 18 points, Jarrell Crayton added 17 and Idris Lassisi had 10 points, 8 assists, and 5 rebounds.
