Seminole, OK- Down 37-36 at the half, Connors battled back and forth until late in the second half then pulled away for a 73-66 win over Seminole State in its OCAC opener at Seminole on Thursday night.
Jhamyl Fricas' slam dunk off a lob pass from Xavier Glenn with about 2 minutes to play put Connors up to stay at 67-64.
"I thought we guarded a little better overall the second half and although the fouls were about even in the second half, we got to the foul line earlier and into the double bonus, which also made a difference," said Connors coach Bill Muse, his team 7-0 on the year.
Glenn led the way with 22 points. Mason Alexander had 12 points, Bradyn Hubbard had 11 points and Fricas had 10.
Connors will host Eastern Oklahoma State College on Monday Night inside Melvin Self Fieldhouse for the OCAC Home Opener. Tip Off is scheduled for 7:30pm
