NOC Enid Jets red hot

— The Northern Oklahoma College Enid Jets and Lady Jets are smoking.

The Lady Jets are riding a seven-game winning streak while the Jets have won six straight. Both teams downed Eastern Oklahoma State College Tuesday and tonight, they will travel to Altus to take on Western.

“I think we’ve started playing good defense,” said Jets coach Greg Shamburg, now in his 10th season at the helm. “Teams have been shooting low percentages against us.”

The Jets are 3-0 in conference play heading into tonight’s game.

“Western is real athletic. They are not real big and they shoot a lot of three-pointers,”  Shamburg explained. “They like to get out in transition and really try to pressure you and get out and run.

“We have to control the ball and make good decisions when we have it. We play pretty fast so them trying to spread us out shouldn’t hurt too much.”

The Jets have been able to get some good minutes in for their younger players.

“Our young guys keep getting better and better,’ Shamburg added. “The freshmen are getting comfortable with playing college basketball. Our inside game is getting better.

“If we can post up and the freshmen continue to get better, we’ll have a chance late in the season.”

For the Lady Jets, a win is a win anyway you shake it.

They are coming off a 2009 season of 29-1.

“We’re getting the wins,” said Lady Jets coach Scott Morris. ‘We’re not getting any style points in the process. We are just fortunate to have a lot of talent.

“The girls are working hard and we are starting to come together. You can win with talent and hard work.”

Western is coming off a down year in 2009 and Morris said his team cannot look past them.

“They are playing a lot better,” Morris explained. “Last year, they were at the bottom of the heap and this year, they are playing a lot tougher.

“We have to avoid complacency. We can’t let them slip up on us. We have unbelievable potential and are working to find our identity.

“If we hit our stride, we can do some things in the postseason.”
