Generals Knock off Casper...win at LCCC!

The #16 ranked Sheridan College Generals had a big week!  First, the Generals took care of the #7 team in the country, Casper College 97-87.  Then they went on the road and beat Laramie County Community College 81-61.  The two wins by the Generals put them on top of the Region IX North standings with a perfect 4-0 record.

 

The first win of the week came inside a packed Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome, where over 1,000 fans witnessed the Generals dominate the T-Birds in the first half and take a 45-30 lead into the locker room.  Sheridan College again came out hot in the 2nd half and jumped to a 60-37 lead.  That run would end though as Casper went on their own run...a 21-0 run to be precise.  The Generals would allow Casper to get within a point before they settled down and regained control of the game.  Even though Sheridan College had an extremely poor performance from the free throw line (12-27), they were able to close the game out and go away with a 97-87 victory.  Camron Reece led the Generals with 26 points, and Ja'Vary Christmas provided a huge contribution off the bench chipping in with 25 points.

 

SC went on the road Saturday to LCCC where they found themselves tied at halftime 31-31.  The Generals were able to pull away in the 2nd half, outscoring LCCC 48-28 in the final 20 minutes.  Camron Reece again led the Generals, posting 18 points and 12 rebounds.  Sasa Vuksanovic was a spark off the bench, coming in and contributing 17 points and 5 rebounds.

 

The Generals are at home this Wenesday as they host fellow NWCCD member, Gillette College.  The women's game starts at 5:30 and the men's game will follow at 7:30pm.
