SC men beat Miles City on Wells layup, 81-80
SHERIDAN — The Generals continued a six-game run into the new year, winning 81-80 Saturday over Miles City (10-10, 3-4).
Head coach Steve Smiley said that the Generals (18-3, 6-1) overcame a season-ending injury to sophomore starter Josh Adeyeye, trailing 76-74 with two minutes to go, rallying and coming up with a Preston Wells layup at the buzzer to move to 6-1 in North Sub-Region IX play.
Fred Dure scored 19 points, Adeyeye finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds, Jeff Amazan chipped in 13 points and six boards, Jamir Andrews added 11 points, and Abednego Lufile had nine rebounds.
Adeyeye, a 6′ 6″ sophomore from Fayeteville, N.C., was an impressive addition to the Generals this year with his athletic inside-outside play. He’s the Generals third-leading scorer at 12 points per game, while averaging 7.9 rebounds per contest. He started 20 of their 21 games.
Sheridan hosts Central Wyoming College (9-10, 3-4) Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
Lady Generals finally get conference road win
SHERIDAN — The Lady Generals (14-7, 4-4) earned their first conference road win of the year, topping Miles City Community College Saturday, 66-55.
Madison Forney scored 18 points to hold up Sheridan College in the middle of North Sub-Region IX standings. Sierra Toms had 15 and Josie Three Irons scored 12.
The win was their third in a row, and while the Lady Generals are 12-0 at home this year, they struggled on the road entering Saturday’s game.
“We believe to win on the road we had to get the ball inside and defend, which I believe we did,” head coach Frank McCarthy said.
They host CWC Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. before traveling to Little Big Horn College Saturday.
