Jets show strong defense in routing Bacone JV

ENID, Okla. — Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s men’s basketball team showed some strong defense in beating the Bacone JV 76-53 in their season opener Thursday at the Mabee Center.

The Jets allowed only 14 points in the first half in racing out to a 22-point lead.

Jets coach Greg Shamburg substituted liberally with 11 different players scoring.

“We came out energized defensively,’’ said NOC Enid assistant coach Ryan Mahoney. “We were very active and focused. We got a lot of deflections.’’

The Jets aggressiveness, Mahoney said, caused Bacone to get out of their offense.

“Everybody came in with a lot of energy,’’ Mahoney said. “We had great communication. We played really well the first half.’’

Kyndall Dudley led the Jets attack with 13 points, followed by Dalen Qualls with 10.

“We played well offensively, but we missed a lot of open shots that were good shots for us,’’ Mahoney said. “We could have been a little more patient and make them guard us a little bit longer.’’

The Jets will be back in action Saturday and Sunday at the Oklahoma-Texas Challenge in Woodward. NOC Enid will play Trinity Valley at 1 p.m. Saturday and Frank Phillips at 1 p.m. Sunday at Weatherford High School. The games were originally scheduled for Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

“We’ll find out a lot more about ourselves,’’ Mahoney said. “Both of those are good teams.’’

The Jets will be back home Thursday when they host Cowley (Kan.) County in the second half of a 6 p.m. women’s-men’s doubleheader at the Mabee Center.

  • 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.

    OK, the conference’s logo is what’s new this year. There are no changes in the makeup or format of the 10-team league, the only power conference with a round-robin schedule that determines a champion without an extra game.
