ENID—Connors State Cowgirls jumped out to a 6-0 lead to open its Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference opener against Northern Oklahoma-Enid Tuesday night on the Jets home floor.
That was their only lead of the night as the Jets quickly tied the game to take a 21-12 first quarter advantage and cruised to a 79-48 victory.
"We just didn't play very good," said Cowgirls head coach Jamie Fisher. "We didn't do the little things to win. We didn't get very many offensive rebounds and didn't have very good rotation.
"They (Jets) are a very good team. They play great team basketball and shoot the ball very well," said Fisher, adding "We just have to recover now and get ready for Thursday."
The loss left the Cowgirls at 7-2 for the year and 0-1 in OCAC play, while NOC-Enid improved to 7-2 and 1-0.
Cowgirls return home Thursday night to play Northern-Oklahoma Tonkawa at Melvin Self Field House at 5:30 p.m.
Sadie Carter and Vicki Duru scored 16 and 12 points respectively to lead the Cowgirls scoring.
Kaylee Hurst led the Jets in scoring with 18 points, followed by Jacie Engler with 13, Chelsea Lazenby 12 and Macie Jo Pierce 11.
