Roughriders Upset #17
YC beats the Gila Monsters for the first time in 6 tries
Not only was tonight’s ACCAC match up against the league leaders and #17 ranked Eastern Arizona College, the Gila Monsters were holding their opponents to a measly 64 points per game. Winning on those terms seems like a pretty unlikely scenario. Seems like…Not only did the Roughriders upset the Gila Monsters, they scored 100 points in the process, 100-95 to improve their overall record to 9-9 and 5-5 in the conference standings. EAC drops to 16-3 and 5-1.
In his first game back since January 5th, Louis Barraza dropped 31 points to lead all scorers. Brandon Gentry added 19 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists. Keith Wilson had a nice all around game with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Javon Jones and Mychal Martinez netted 10 points a piece. YC shot an overwhelming 59% from the field and a whopping 56% from behind the 3-point arc.
Yavapai returns to conference play on Wednesday, January 23rd in Douglas to face Cochise College. Both teams split their two meetings a year ago, each winning on their opponent’s home floor. Tip-off will be at 7:30 PM on the campus of Cochise College in Douglas.
