The Sheridan College Generals finished the 2010-11 Regular Season in impressive fashion by beating two Wyoming Conference Rivals this past weekend, to finish the year 21-9 heading into this week's Region 9 Tournament.
On Friday night, the Generals played Eastern Wyoming College from Torrington, WY, attempting to avenge an earlier season loss in Torrington. The Generals honored their sophomores prior to tip-off, and all host families and parents were recognized as well, so there was a great energy in the gym. SC came out flat however, especially on offense, and found themselves down 35-33 at half. The second half was another low-scoring affair, but Sheridan finally distanced themselves on a couple of Omar McDade 3's late in the game, and with time running down, Sheridan pulled out a couple of huge defensive stops to seal the victory. McDade led the Generals with 19 points, and Jarrell Crayton finished with 12.
On Saturday, the Generals finally broke out of a shooting and scoring slump against a red-hot Laramie County team that had won their previous nine games. Sheridan exploded out of the gates and led 51-42 at halftime, and kept up the performance throughout, as they torched LCCC for 95 points en route to a 95-81 victory. Lamont Prosser had one of his best games of the year with 23 points and 11 rebounds, Omar McDade had 25 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists, Jarrell Crayton had 13 points and 9 rebounds, Matt Glover had 11 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists, and Kendrick Morse had a team-high 7 assistss and 9 points.
The Generals now get ready to head to Norfolk, Nebraska for the Region 9 tournament. The Generals will be the first game of the tournament on Friday, March 4th when they face Trinidad State JC out of Trinidad, Colorado. Tip-off time is 1pm CST.

The Sheridan College Generals stepped up when they needed it most on Tuesday night, playing on the road with a championship on the line vs. rival Northwest College in Powell, WY. The Generals had struggled through adversity in the past couple weeks and regained composure at a critical time to win the North Sub Region and gain the #1 seed heading into next week's Region 9 Tournament in Norfolk, NE.
Omar McDade had a huge game for the Generals (19-9 on the year) with 21 points on 6 of 7 shooting from the 3pt line. Matt Glover contributed a solid 14 points, including two huge shots down the stretch to hold the lead for Sheridan, and Lamont Prosser was a presence down low with 14 points and 9 rebounds.
The Generals will finish the regular season this weekend when they play Eastern Wyoming College on Friday night (a special night with Sophomore night, Host Family Night, and Fan Appreciation Night), and then face a very talented Laramie County team on Saturday to end the regular season. Friday's game is at 7:30 PM MST and will be broadcast live online (http://www.scgenerals.com/), and Saturday's tip-off is for 5:00 PM MST (also broadcast online).
