Men's Basketball Participates in Annual Midnight Madness Event

Generals Nation,

Last night, Sheridan College had their annual Midnight Madness event at the Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome. The night was dedicated to the all the student-athletes at Sheridan College, who put in extra time and effort every day in the classroom and in their sport. All sports were recognized including men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, rodeo, and men’s and women’s basketball. The event had many interactive games and prizes for all the students, and it also gave each team a chance to interact with the whole student body.

Each member of the men’s basketball team was introduced to the crowd. Following introductions, the men’s and women’s basketball team had a freshman vs. sophomore scrimmage. Directly after the scrimmage, Kyi Thomas, Bennie Lufile, and Pablo Rivas took the floor for a dunk contest. Each member threw down some impressive dunks, but Kyi stole the show after he jumped over the emcee. The crowd was very enthusiastic, and it was a great night for the whole athletics program at Sheridan College.

Please view the YouTube clip below for highlights from the night. All the photo credits go to Mike at The Sheridan Press.

The Men’s Basketball Team Rolls Past Medicine Hat College (Canada)

Generals Nation,

The men’s basketball team had their first test on Saturday night, as they faced Medicine Hat College from Canada. This was the first time the 2014-15 team was on the court together in a game setting. After a slow start, the Generals were sparked by defensive intensity and transition baskets. The Generals showed some strengths, and also showed many things that still need some work. At the half, Sheridan College was up 48-31, and sophomore guard Jamir Andrews led the team with 11 points. A few minutes into the second half, the team turned it up defensively and set the tempo for the rest of the game. Sheridan College got the win with a final score of 92-61. Sophomore guard Kyi Thomas and freshman forward Pablo Rivas paced the Generals with 17 points each. Sophomore forward Bennie Lufile added 15 points. Three players were out with injuries for the Generals, including Preston Wells (knee), Jevon Griffin (ankle), and Tredarius McCallum (finger).

The Generals continue their exhibition game schedule this Saturday, October 18th, at the Casper College Jamboree. They take on Western Nebraska Community College at 12:30 PM and Little Big Horn College at 4:30 PM. Thanks to all the fans for your support, and we are looking forward to the upcoming season.

Go Generals!
