Warner- In a battle of unbeatens, the Connors State Cowboys grabbed an early lead, but the Seminole State Trojans took over the lead in the first five minutes and led the rest of the way in the Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference opener for both teams.
"They just out-toughed us for 39 minutes. I thought we had gotten over the hump and were playing well, but tonight is a wake-up call for us," said a disappointed Cowboy coach Bill Muse.
The Trojans (9-0, 1-0) did a good job of boxing out Cowboys leading scorer Jahcoree Ealy who had only two field goals on the night but managed to tie for high-point honors with 16 points by going 12-13 from the free throw line. Freshman Xavier Glenn also made it into double figures with 13 points for Connors (8-1, 0-1) while Israel Hart lead Seminole State with 16 points. The cowboys continue OCAC action next Monday on the Road at Eastern Oklahoma State College.
