Generals grind out win over Plainsmen

SHERIDAN — The No. 18 Sheridan College men’s basket- ball team dipped out of Region IX North play Thursday to battle Northeastern Junior College. The Generals grinded out a 72-59 victory to improve to 15-1 on the season.

AJ Bramah and Adham Eleeda paced SC with 17 points apiece — Bramah just missed out on a double-double with nine rebounds. Cam Reece added 12 points, and Javary Christmas came off the bench to score 12, as well.

The Generals hit 51 percent (26 of 51) of their field-goal attempts but only made 5 of 21 shots from 3-point land. SC held the Plainsmen to just 38.3 percent (23-for-60) from the floor. The Generals return to Region IX North play Saturday at home against Western Wyoming Community College.
