NOC Enid takes 2 from NEO

MIAMI — — MIAMI — Chelsea Bates hit a free throw with 1.4 seconds remaining as No. 13-ranked Northern Oklahoma College Enid outlasted Northeastern A&M, 59-58 in a women’s Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Confer-ence basketball game Tuesday.

In the men’s game, Dalen Qualls was 6-of-10 from 3-point range in a season-high 25-point effort to lead the Jets to a 82-62  victory.

Bates, a freshman from Thomas, was fouled while getting an offensive rebound. The Norsewomen had tied the game at 58 with 20 seconds remaining.

Bates hit the front-end of the one-and-one, but deliberately missed the second which allowed the clock to run out.

“Making the free throw was big, but missing the second like she did was just as big,’’ said NOC Enid assistant Josiah White. “It’s not that easy to do because you have to draw iron. She did it perfectly. That was a big step for her.’’

The Lady Jets, 7-1 overall and 2-0 in conference, led 34-25 at halftime. NOC Enid was able to keep the lead until NEO tied the game late.

“It wasn’t pretty, but we’ll take it,’’ White said. “It’s always tough playing here. It was good to get that first road conference win.’’

Sophomore Justice Payne, was six-of-eight from long distance in a 20-point effort.

“That saved us,’’ White said.

The Lady Jets will be back in action Saturday at Crowder Community College in Neosho, Mo.


The Jets (7-3, 1-1) picked up their first conference win with one of their most complete games of the season.

NOC Enid raced off to a 37-29 halftime lead and never looked back.

Qualls was able to break the Norsemen zone early.

“That got us going,’’ said Jets assistant coach Ryan Mahoney. “Our 1-2-2 press gave them some problems. We got a couple of easy shots and that got us going. From start to finish, that was one of the best 40 minutes that we have played.’’

Qualls was joined in double figures by Xavier McClish with 15 points and Rex Farmer, with 14 points.

“Everybody that got in played hard and competed,’’ Mahoney said. “We showed some toughness tonight. That’s a good sign.’’

The Jets will be back in action Saturday when they host Southwest Christian JV in a 1 p.m. tip-off at the Mabee Center.

    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
