Rustlers defeated in overtime at Sheridan
Sheridan, WY (January 11) – The CWC men’s basketball team wlost to Sheridan College in overtime 69-65. Rockford, IL freshman Armani Flannigan's jumper at the buzzer rimmed out. The Rustlers were out scored in overtime by the Generals 10-6.
Flannigan led the Rustlers in scoring and rebounding with 15 points on 6 of 13 shooting and eight rebounds. Las Vegas, NV freshman Davion Pearson had 13 points; red-shirt freshman Malachi Roberts also had 13 points. North Hills, CA sophomore James “Deuce” Johnson had 10 points on 4 of 6 shooting to round out those in double figures for the Rustlers.
“This was not a question of being in shape or not knowing what needed to be done. But at the end of the game and in overtime there were still too many mental breakdowns. Our team is young with only three sophomores with any kind of experience, but it’s time to grow up and find a way on the court to finish the game. The effort is there, we need to find a way” Coach Curtis Condie said.
