#15-ranked Generals 11-1 after weekend split

The Sheridan College Generals finished 11-1 heading into the holiday break after a weekend split to begin Wyoming Conference Action.

The Generals, ranked #15 in the nation, hosted rival Casper College last Friday night and played well in a very tough & physical game. At halftime, the Generals managed to hold a slim 38-33 lead, and after Casper briefly gained the lead early in the second half, the Generals began firing on all cylinders, eventually pulling out the 78-67 victory. For the game, sophomore Jarrell Crayton played great with 23 points and 12 rebounds, and sophomore PG Kendrick Morse chipped in 17 pionts and a team-high 8 assists.

On Saturday, the Generals played another rival game vs. Gillette College and suffered defeat for the first time of the season. The Generals started slow and dug a deep hole, eventually being down by 13 with 8 minutes remaining in the game before a furious rally saw the Generals tie the game at 87-87 with 15 seconds remaining. Unfortunately, on the last play of the game, the Generals were called for a foul and Gillette hit two free throws to seal the victory.

The Generals are now 11-1 on the season and ranked #15 in the nation heading into the break. Games will resume on January 7th when Sheridan faces Central Wyoming, and then face Western Wyoming on the 8th.
