SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Generals beat Malmstrom Air Force Base Thursday night, with the Lady Generals improving to 10-6 and the Generals improving to 13-3.
The Lady Generals won 113-31, blowing out Malmstrom for the second time this season.
“I think it was good to get a game under us before we play Casper on Saturday,” head coach Frank McCarthy said. “It is hard to take three weeks off right in the middle of our season, but is also really nice break for our player to be able to enjoy the holiday’s with their families. Also we have been going hard since Sept. 1, so the break was well deserved mentally and physically. Hopefully it will keep up fresh down the stretch of our season.”
For the Generals, five scored in double figures on the way to a 110-59 victory. Josh Adeyeye scored 18, Jamir Andrews had 16, Preston Wells 13, Jeff Amazan 12, and Fred Dure 11. Iakeem Alston dished out six assists.

The Generals are 1-1 in conference play, beating Gillette on the road but falling at Western Wyoming. Casper is 2-0 in Region IX play and 9-5 overall.
