Generals slip past Lancers
SHERIDAN — The No. 18 Sheridan College men’s basketball team opened Region IX play Wednesday night in Torrington. The Generals edged Eastern Wyoming College 81-77 to improve to 14-1 on the season.
Adham Eleeda and AJ Bramah led a balanced scoring attack — which featured six Generals in double figures — with 16 points apiece. Josh Bagley and Cam Reece each had 13 points, while Javary Christmas and Sean Sutherlin added 11 and 10 points, respectively.
Sheridan led 40-35 at halftime and increased its lead to double digits early in the second half. But Eastern Wyoming made a run and tied it with under five minutes to play. Bagley’s 3-pointer with just under a minute left in the contest gave Sheridan some cushion at 80-77, and Eleeda iced the game with a free throw with less than a second to play.
The Generals return home Saturday and play host to Western Wyoming Community College at 5 p.m.
