Jets host Hesston in home opener


Fresh off two road wins in Kansas, Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s men will try to continue their dominance tonight over the Sunflower State  when the Jets host Hesston, Kan., in a 7 p.m. tipoff tonight at the Mabee Center.

It’s the home opener for NOC Enid, who beat Kansas State-Salina, 72-66 and Brown-Mackie, 83-65 last weekend in Salina, Kan.

Jets coach Greg Shamburg scouted the Larks’ 110-76 win over the Centrald Christian JV Saturday night. Hesston beat Union College, 103-81 and lost to Barton, Kan., Community College, 112-65.

“They are not as big as the teams we played last weekend, but their guard play is a little better,’’ Shamburg said. “It will be a different challenge for us. They play really hard on defense. This being a home game will help our guys be ready to go.’’

Xavier McClish leads the Jets attack with a 18.0 average. He will be joined in the starting lineup by Kyndall Dudley (13.5), Connor Brooks (10.0), Travis Carbajal (4.0) and Brandon Burns (5.0).

Shamburg was especially pleased with McLish and the team’s scoring depth over the weekend.

“Xavier McLish showed leadership Friday and Saturday,’’ Shamburg said. “He carried us on his back. I think balanced scoring will be our strength this season. We don’t have to rely on one guy.’’

Hesston is led by Oklahoma City native Mahlon Jones, who had 18 points, nine rebounds and nine steals against the Central Christian JV.

NOC Eid beat Hesston 91-57 last season.

Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for students.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.

    For ex-Oklahoma State star Rickie Fowler, this is getting downright familiar.
