SALINA,Kan. — It was the tale of two halves in NOC Enid’s 72-66 win over Kansas State-Salina in the junior college men’s basketball opener for both teams Friday.

The Jets trailed 39-22 at halftime, but rallied to outscore their hosts 50-27 in the second half.

“We played with a lot more energy in the second half,’’ said NOC Enid assistant Ryan Mahoney.

Xavier McClish led the Jets with 24 points, followed by Dalen Qualls with 13 and Kyndall Dudley with 12.

The Jets will face Brown-Mackie at 3 p.m. today and will host Hesston (Kan.) at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Mabee Center.
