Redlands sweeps Jets

EL RENO, Okla. — EL RENO — Redlands Community College swept Northern Oklahoma College Enid’s women’s and men’s basketball teams in the Oklahoma Collegiate Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

The women fell 72-57 despite 19 points from Marisha Wallace. The game was tied 34-34 at halftime, but the Lady Cougars outscored the Lady Jets (5-5) 38-23 in the second half.

The men (5-2) fell to the Cougars 73-65 despite 20 points from Dalen Qualls. The Cougars never trailed after taking a 29-28 lead with 3:30 remaining in the first half. The Jets cut the lead to four points twice in the second half, 59-55 and 69-65, after a basket by Kyndall Dudley with 18 seconds left, but could not get any closer.

Dudley (14) and Espinoza (10) joined Qualls in double figures.

“For our first conference game, we didn’t compete at the level you have to compete at in conference play,’’ said Jets assistant coach Ryan Mahoney. “We didn’t play at the level of toughness you need to have in conference play. You have to step it up in conference play, and we didn’t play at that level for 40 minutes.’’

Mahoney said the Jets need to learn from this.

“We have a lot of time to improve,’’ he said. “We just have to realize we have to put more effort into it.’’

The women led 32-19 in the first half, only to see the Lady Cougars go on a 15-2 run to tied the game at 34-34. The game was last tied 48-48 with about 12 minutes remaining.

Redlands went on a 14-3 run to take a 62-51 advantage with five minutes left.

Christa Bealser was the only other NOC Enid player in double figures with 11 points.

The women will play the Bethel JV Friday at the Hesston, Kan., Thanksgiving Classic. The men will play the Tabor JV.
