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.
